Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good+ DJ.
Illustrated with colour photographs & diagrams. From the cover: “Machine embroidery is a subject that both intimidates and fascinates many embroiderers. In this book Val Holmes first explains and demonstrates each technique, then goes on to suggest creative projects and experiments with which to practise this new skill. She covers the complete range of machine embroidery, with separate chapters on Tension techniques, lacy effects with vanishing fabrics and texture techniques. As the reader’s technical knowledge increases, so the projects become more ambitious. Students can work through the book from beginning to end, but it is also possible to dip into a chapter to solve a particular technical Problem or try out an experiment.”
