Material World Home DeCOR Projects for the Fabric Obsessed


Material World Home DeCOR Projects for the Fabric Obsessed by Cat Wei

Material World is the first in a series of home sewing books geared toward do-it-yourself enthusiasts and crafters who have an interest in interior design. The new home sewer has changed considerably over the past decade with the increase and popularity of home makeover shows and the reduced cost of owning a sewing machine. Most readers view sewing the same way they look at knitting and crocheting - as a fun and relatively inexpensive way to create their own looks. Material World assumes working knowledge of a sewing machine with the basic construction techniques for the fun 50 projects. Each project shows the reader how to take inspiration from everyday items or the tear sheet from your favourite home decor magazine and bring a little piece of it into their homes.

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

Dawn Lynch

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

Jennifer Moville

Books of the month/debuts of the month, kids/adults, fiction/non-fiction, free prize draws and free extracts, what's not to love?

Emma Smith

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.
