Waste not, want not. This crafty guide perfect for anyone looking to enjoy the simple pleasures of life. Nowadays, many of us "outsource" basic tasks. Food is instant, ready-made, and processed with unhealthy additives. Dry cleaners press shirts, delivery guys bring pizza, gardeners tend flowers, and, yes, tailors sew on those pesky buttons. But life can be much simpler, sweeter, and richer-and a lot more fun, too! As your grandmother might say, now is not the time to be careless with your money, and it actually pays to learn how to do things yourself! Practical and empowering, How to Sew a Button collects the treasured wisdom of nanas, bubbies, and grandmas from all across the country-as well as modern-day experts-and shares more than one hundred step-by-step essential tips for cooking, cleaning, gardening, and entertaining, including how to * polish your image by shining your own shoes * grow your own vegetables (and stash your bounty for the winter) * sweeten your day by making your own jam * use baking soda and vinegar to clean your house without toxic chemicals * feel beautiful by perfecting your posture * roll your own piecrust and find a slice of heaven * fold a fitted sheet to crisp perfection * waltz without stepping on any toes Complete with helpful illustrations and brimming with nostalgic charm, How to Sew a Button provides calm and comfort in uncertain times. By doing things yourself, with care and attention, you and your loved ones will feel the pleasing rewards of a job well done.… (mehr)

Not profound, but a neat book and a helpful one. ( )

Rather warm and fuzzy for a how-to book. Funny, too (the last step in “How to hang a picture” is to walk by and check to see if the eyes follow you). Charmingly illustrated with pen and ink drawings of ideal 50's housewives carrying on in calm, polished style. Not too precious, though – there's good advice in here. Most of the things you can learn from this book are essentials (such as sewing on a button, canning, or using a clothesline), or at the very least, things you've always wanted to be able to do (like mix the perfect Martini or make nice with the neighbors). Advice was drawn from real grandmothers who are profiled just after the introduction. ( )

I loved this book. I grew up not learning a lot of these things and I really enjoyed learning how to do simple things like folding a fitted sheet. I am looking forward to baking my first pie and trying other lessons in there as well. ( )

I liked this, but it was very 101. ( )

This is one of those books that I'm going to have to read again with a notebook next to me so that I can remember the advice! This is one book that I am going to purchase and keep in my home, both to use and to loan. I cannot wait to get ahold of How to Start a Fire and Other Things Your Grandfather Knew. ( )
