And, if you haven’t left comments for A Year in the Life of Sunbonnet Sue, you have until midnite, tonight to do so –
Now, on to today’s book:
Machine Embroidered Quilting and Applique
by Eileen Roche
This is a Create with Nancy book, which means there is a DVD in the back that is hosted by Nancy Zieman, featuring the book! How cool is that?! (Well, so cool in fact that I have two more Create with Nancy book titles that will be a part of the book review and giveaway in the near future — for real!)
So I have to tell you, this book is a Machine Embroider’s, machine quilter’s and machine appliquer’s DREAM book.
Eileen is considered an Expert in the industry, as she is, also, the Editor of Designs in Machine Embroidery magazine
All of the instructions in the book are accompanied with detailed photos so you can see exactly how Eileen means for you to follow along. There are sidebar comments by Nancy Zieman throughout the book as well.
The projects in the book are simple, cool and do-able.
If you have an embroidery attachment to your sewing machine that is collecting dust because you haven’t taken the time to use it, or have been afraid to get started – this book is for you. Believe me – I have an embroidery attachment and just reviewing this book made me want to set my machine up and get going. Really — what have I been waiting for?
