The Sewing Machine Attachment Handbook

I’ve been reading again. Surprise, surprise.

Sewing Machine Attachment Handbook

Sewing Machine Attachment Handbook

This time it is The Sewing Machine Attachment Handbook by Charlene Phillips (ISBN: 978-0-89689-623-0).

This book was an easy and fascinating read about the history of sewing machines, what attachments came standard with many of the older machines, and how to use all those weird looking contraptions that come with or are available for sewing machines.

Not only did I learn a lot about these different attachments, now when I shop online for attachments for my machine, I know what I’m looking at! I’ve found some great deals on eBay and a lot of sellers don’t have a clue what they have or what they are used for. There are sets of attachments for a little as $0.98! For 8 or 10 attachments! Knowledge is not only power, but it is also a dollar saver!

Buy this book or borrow from your public library then go shopping!
