Review American Quilt Retailer - July 1, 2008
“Valori Wells and Carolyn Spencer in Life Style, another title in the 'Oh Sew Easy' series by C&T Publishing have presented 20 new projects for the home and family designed for organization, function, and decoration. The variety is such that there's really something for anyone, and this book will especially attract a young market with its emphasis on color, function and simplicity. These projects are like those seen in many of the popular mail order home furnishing catalogs. Make samples of the fabric basket liners and the fabric footstool. They are representative of the book, and will work as props in all your displays as well.”
Review Anna Magazine - June 1, 2009
“Color, function, and simplicity define each one of the projects in [this book]. Authors and friends Valori Wells and Carolyn Spencer start by giving you a basic how-to guide to sewing terms, techniques, and tools. The three project sections-Stylishly Organized Stylishly Functional, and Stylishly Accessorized-contain patterns for practical items you use everyday: recipe/project organizer, basket-liners, picnic cloths, travel/diaper tote, wine bag, grocery totes, throws, and more. Clear, step-by-step instructions, patterns layouts, and illustrations guide you through every step of construction.”
Review The Quilt Show - September 3, 2009
"In keeping with my organizing theme of the month, Oh Sew Easy Life Style has some terrific ideas to help you organize your life and personalize your home. Several organizers feature a hanging background fabric with large pockets handy for storage. One is geared to recipes, one to office papers and one to kids. Baskets are popular for organizing, and Valori Wells and Carolyn Spencer show you how to make basket liners for square, rectangular and round baskets. On the functional side, you'll find sassy aprons and a picnic cloth. And what life style book would be complete without a few tote patterns? Valori and Carolyn include a diaper bag and a slumber party backpack. In total the book offers ideas and patterns for 20 fun and stylish projects, as well as basic sewing techniques. You're sure to find something to make for yourself or give as a gift."
