Language Workbook for Power Sewing.
Based on the student workbook entitled "Power Sewing", this manual is intended to aid aurally handicapped vocational students who are being trained in power sewing. The sequence of lessons closely follows the progression of sewing skills taught by the shop text, but covers the material from the standpoint of reading and communication skills. The thirty-five lessons include the use, care, and operation of the power sewing machine and the single-needle lockstitch machine; primary sewing operations; single-needle sewing projects; the uses of other machines used in power sewing; pressing; and hints for being a good operator. Illustrations and sign language accompany the instructions in each lesson. (BM)
