Amazon.com: Embroidery Machine Essentials: Basic Techniques : 20 Designs and Project Ideas to Develop Your Embroidery Skills (Jeanine Twigg’s Companion Project Series): Books: Jeanine Twigg

There I was minding my own business cruising the web when Bam! Look what I found!

It’s a book called Embroidery Machine Essentials by Jeanine Twigg and covers what she calls basic techniques. Now I’m the first to tell you that enthusiastic as I am about machine embroidery, I’m brand new to it.

Did you have any idea you could make fringed designs with an embroidery machine? I sure didn’t. I ordered the book yesterday, was told it’s on its way to me and I can’t wait!

I’ll be elbowing my daughter aside and using her machine to try out everything in the book. So a review of the book is coming up. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, did you ever go to Amazon.com and order a book? I particularly love the used ones, because I’m what you might call frugal betimes. A whole house full of frugal buys. Hmm.

Jeanine Twigg has other books, you see. Look out.
