Usually these are gifts and sometimes we get them at our local sewing shop. I use the books for reference. Sometimes I make projects from the books and sometimes I use the ideas in the book when I'm making something similar.
My favorite sewing books right are: my new one since Christmas, Kanzashi in Bloom and All Dolled Up.
