Description

You can sew without sight! "How To Enjoy Machine Sewing Without Sight" is the third book in the “Needle Arts with Vision Loss” series. The focus is on safe adaptive blind techniques in machine sewing, including some hand sewing techniques and resources. With a good working knowledge of adaptive blind techniques, a visually impaired person can sew competently and safely while creating beautiful projects. Shireen Irvine Perry, a teacher of Needle Arts with adaptive blind techniques, has been teaching blind and visually impaired adults Needle Arts for more than 35 years. Many of her students from the greater San Francisco Bay Area and beyond have asked her to write a book. This is it. The methods have proven successful for Shireen's students over many years. She encourages her students to ask themselves, “How can I make this work safely?” instead of, “I can’t do this because I can’t see.” Her hope is this book along with the rest of the Needle Arts with Vision Loss series, may add perspective to give both teachers and those with a visual impairment the means to tackle a project otherwise thought impossible. This book and the series may be used as a guide in teaching many of the adaptive needle arts techniques to those visually impaired or as a resource for newly blind experienced needle artists.
