Library Journal Review
Archer, who designs machine embroidery for her company Pickle Pie Designs, walks sewists through the process of taking an electronic file of an embroidery motif and using the machine to stitch it onto the desired fabric. After introducing the basics of hooping and providing an overview of the various stabilizers, Archer presents a series of projects, each highlighting a different aspect of machine embroidery. A final group of designs introduces "in the hoop" ideas, which take advantage of the advanced functions of embroidery machines to construct small bags and a chalkboard bunting. -VERDICT Specific details of using an embroidery machine may require the machine's manual, but Archer's guide provides a friendly, practical summary of the basics. © Copyright 2016.
