Sewing books

There's something you might not know about me..... I love books. Fiction, non fiction, you name it. Since I discovered The Book Depository with their free delivery policy worldwide I'm in big trouble. I wanna have soooo many books, you better not know how long my wish list is.
Today I received brand new book The Bag Making Bible by Lisa Lam. For those of you who never heard about Lisa, you should check out her blog. She has plenty of tutorials and how tos. I already downloaded one of her free bag purse pattern, but never came round to making it. Someday....

My other sewing books are Making Handbags: retro, chic, luxurious by Ellen Goldstein - Lynch, Sarah Mullins and Nicole Malone.

Designer Home Sewing by Linda Lee

I'm not at all a pattern girl.... I don't use sewing patterns at all. Maybe this new book will change my mind. Now I'd love to buy a really good patchwork or quilting book. There are so many, to many, I don't know where to start. Unfortunally there are almost none in our biggest book store, so I have to buy from the internet. Any suggestions? Must be a book for begginers. Like a cook book for someone who never saw a kitchen before.


  1. I don't know any quilting books I'm afraid, but I'm glad I'm not the only one that collects sewing books lol

  2. Book Depository je zaaakooon in nabrala sem si že toliko knjig, da je čas da si vzamem malo predaha, ampak še vedno znova in znova najdem kaj zanimivega :) To prvo sem imela v roki in se mi je zdela zelo dobra, čeprav se ne spoznam kaj dosti na šivanje torbic, ampak zdela se mi je zelo nazorna. Žal ti ne vem povedati za kakšno knjigo za quilting, ker nisem nič tega kupovala. Lahko pa ti za kvačkanje ali ustvarjanje iz papirja :))))

  3. hehe, ja jst tud preveč zapravlam po book depository... imam tudi tole biblijo, ampak mi še ni uspelo nič narest iz nje. sem trenutno še v kvačkarski fazi.
