Great book for learning machine embroidery

This is an excellent book, well written, with clear, step by step directions for eleven projects. It comes with a cd that includes the lettering fonts and designs to complete each item. There’s a good discussion of stabilizers, and the book is very helpful regarding specialty fabrics like toweling. Several projects are finished in the hoop. There’s also a list of suppliers for projects shown in the book. I highly recommend this for beginning machine embroiderers.

Always interested in tips and ideas!

Yes, this is a great book for beginners to expert. I have been embroidering for years but am always looking for tips and help to improve. This is a good book to add to my library.
