Islander Sewing Systems 1 – Now in Workbook Format

In this book on industrial techniques for garment construction, Janet explains sewing methods that have proven to be superior. Each is carefully and clearly explained in a logical sequence, accompanied by close-up photography to illustrate the steps. Readers are encouraged to make samples to reinforce the learning process. Although this workbook will be easily understood by beginning home-sewers, it is also valuable to the more advanced who wish to improve their techniques.

Islander Sewing Systems uses no pins or basting and emphasizes that the most important key to creativity comes from total understanding of materials and machines. Once you learn this system, your technical difficulties are over - you only need to follow where your imagination leads you. The techniques are so deceptively simple that they become second nature. This means that ideas quickly become reality without resorting to complicated and cumbersome methods. Just imagine cutting your sewing time in half and producing truly professional results. Now that’s exciting!

Additional supplements will be released periodically and can easily be added to the workbook.

    After over 50 years of sewing as a hobbyist and a professional, this book taught me new things. Not only did I learn new techniques to make my sewing quicker and easier but it reawakened my love of sewing. This book is worth every penny and I'm so glad I made the purchase.

    Really great book

    Posted by Katey on 11th Feb 2018

    I have followed Janet's Jacket Express tutorial and was delighted with the end result. I decided I wanted to know more and bought the book. It is really well designed with good illustrations and easy to follow clear instructions. You do need to practice these techniques and I would recommend following through the book and then taking one of the tutorials. I have now got to the stage where pins are a nuisance and even when I think I need one, I end up taking it out. I still need more practice with the Burrito technique before I can do it without following the instructions. As Janet says these techniques become second nature really quickly. Highly recommended as a go to reference for those awkward things you come across when sewing. I never thought I'd be sewing a lapped zip into a cusion without pins or basting!!
