Due to lengthy cross-border shipping delays stemming from the pandemic, all international orders will now be shipped from the closest publisher location by default. This is including those going to the USA. As a result, you will receive your book order much faster, you may receive a partial refund on shipping*, but the book(s) will not be signed. If you would prefer to receive your books signed - and are ok with potentially 6+ weeks of shipping time - please note that in your order.
* Some orders end up being significantly cheaper to mail from the publisher locations, some are about the same price. There does not seem to be any rhyme or reason to which way it goes.

Spandex Simplified Manuals
Prior to her cake career, Marie Porter had an illustrious career in spandex costuming. Now, you can learn all of her secrets to spandex design and sewing! "Synchro Swimwear", "Sewing for Skaters" and "Sewing for Gymnasts" are the first three titles in Marie's new Spandex Simplified series, and are all about designing and creating spectacular and durable competitive sports costuming.
These books are appropriate for beginner to advanced levels of sewing ability, and is written from both a designer, and former “performance” athlete’s point of view. They teach everything from the basics, to tricks of the trade. The "Spandex Simplified" series will prepare the reader to design and make almost any design of competitive synchro suit, skating dress, or gymnastics leotard imaginable. Given the cost of decent competition suits, these manuals each pay for themselves with the savings from just one project!
The books are written completely in laymans' terms and carefully explained, step by step. Only basic sewing knowledge and talent is required. Learn everything from measuring, to easily creating ornate applique designs, to embellishing the finished suit in one book!
