3-0 out of 5 stars Okay, but a little like an advertising brochure
I got this book when I first got my embroidery machine.Her lists of all the types of stabilizer and what they are used for is helpful now (4 years later) but was just overwhelming when I was starting.Her tips are good, but there weren't many projects I was interested in making, and I didn't need a discussion of the types of machines--I don't think it even starts on projects until page 65 or later.In general, I'm a big Nancy Zeiman fan & have several of her books, but this book wasn't very helpful to me as a beginning embroiderer.I had better luck subscribing to embroidery magazines.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another excellent book by Nancy Zieman
I just bought an embroidery machine online and didn't really know where to start.Since I have bought books by Nancy Zieman in the past, I looked for one by her on this topic.The book covers everything from machines, thread, placement in the hoop, and ideas for embroidery.It is clearly written with excellent photos.

5-0 out of 5 stars Machine Embroidery on Difficult Materials
I have done custom embroidery in the past but not on some of the materials covered in this book. To anyone who plans on doing embroidery for personal or business reasons I believe this book is essential.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lots of great advice packed into one book
Deborah Jones has been doing machine embroidery for many years and has a lot of experience doing embroidery on any number of fabrics.Having attended one of her seminars, I realized that practically everything she teaches at her seminar is packed into this one book.Before reading the book, I thought that successful machine embroidery depends primarily on an appropriate selection of a stabilizer and possibly a topper.But now I know how important good hooping is, how the selection of needle types affects stitch-outs, and how designs may need to be modified for certain problem fabrics.This book is filled with good advice and demands a careful read to get everything you can out of it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Huge help
This book is a huge help to anyone starting out in machine embroidery. Yes, you still have to try things out and make adjustments, but this gives you a place to start. For example, I wouldn't have known to stick with cut-away stabilizer on t-shirt fabric; I might have tried all sorts of goofy things, and not come up with that for some time. This book is an immense time-saver.

This is one of the best books that I have purchased. It answered all of my questions and more. I would give more stars if there was more to give. It is well worth the buy.

Great ideas on how to create wonderful surface designs on fabric.
Great for thread painting.
Would recommend.

5-0 out of 5 stars Freestyle Machine Embroidery
While looking through my many needlecraft magazines, I came upon a project done by Carol Shinn that I thought was amazing, so I was delighted to see that she had published a book on her techniques. I have been looking for quite a while for a book that showed how to do freestyle machine embroidery which is not the same as doing machine embroidery using digitized designs. With freestyle machine embroidery, you use your sewing machine as a paint brush and thread as the paint, sewing down layers of color to make a picture or design.

In my quest I have come upon books that while supposedly about this type of embroidery, spend half the book talking about painting backgrounds, etc. Well if I could paint backgrounds I think I would stick with painting and forget trying to learn how to machine embroider the picture. This book, however, explains some simple projects that you can do with painting blocks of color (or you could print the blocks out using special ink jet photo transfer paper) and then explains how to use your threads to sew out these simple designs. Once you have learned these simple techniques then you go on to learn how to show transparency of colors in your designs. There are plenty of pictures so that you can understand the step by step process including showing the blocks and the spools of thread used in the project and how they combined.

The author explains the materials she uses and the whys of what she uses and at the same time going on to describe other material that can be used and how you would need to stabilize it. She also spends time on explaining how a design can distort due to the quantity of thread taking up fabric depending on the way the stitches lie. This is the first I recall hearing about the possibilities of distortion from all the books I have read on freestyle machine embroidery in so it was certainly good to know. Along with her own work she shows examples of other artists and explains their basic techniques and philosophy about what they do.

At the back of the book was a page of recommended reading with a long list of books that I hadn't heard of. I think my wish list will be expanding if I can't find the books through my local library. All in all this was a terrific book and one I highly recommend if you are interested at all in this sewing technique. Perhaps after reading this book, I will now be able to go back to my other books on machine embroidery and understand the techniques for combining the thread better.

4-0 out of 5 stars freestyle freewheelin'
This is a wondrous book with many examples of finished pieces that are breathtaking. Yet the actual instructions of how to do this kind of embroidery are limited to just twenty pages of the book. The remaining pages are a gallery with no instructions, a useful colour section on overlaying threads and a few techniques and tips. I would rather have seen more instructions on how to make a face in machine embroidery, how to make a 'landscape'. I do think this book is worthwhile because it is inspiring and shows you what can be achieved, but I am not at all sure that it is the best instructional book on freestyle machine embroidery.

5-0 out of 5 stars Freestyle Machine Embroidery: Techniques and Inspiration for Fiber Art
I have long admired Carol Shinn's work and was excited to find such a clear and informative book showing her work and methods. The book is all that was promised and more. The photographs are very good and clearly show how Ms Shinn accompishes her wonderful thread paintings. There are excellent examples of other artists' work in this medium and the instructions are concise and thorough. It was also helpful to find that Ms Shinn's methods do not require any high tech sewing machines or specialized equipment. She also gives very good instructions about correcting the problems that might arise while working on fabric. I appreciate good books that deliver what is promised and this one certainly does.

4-0 out of 5 stars Eye candy and inspiration
This is threadwork as an artform by itself, not as an additional facet of textile or mixed media art. Many of the pieces and techniques discussed in Carol's book would need thousands of yards of thread to make. She explains clearly how to stitch over a transferred image, and what effect direction of stitching will have. She also shows some great examples of colour blending. There is a gallery of mostly abstract work by other artists in thread. The subtitle tells you what the book is providing - both techniques and inspiration. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars juvenile designs
The designs included with this book are very juvenile and nothing you would want to use on a real project. The instructions are spare and incomplete. You are constantly referred back to her book for info which is time consuming for $20.00 I expect more. Don't waste your money.A big disappointment.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Designs Included
This book, as it says in the title, is a "companion" to the Embroidery Machine Essentials", "How to Stabilize, Hoop, and Stitch Decorative Designs".

This book has some really cool projects and creative ideas in it. It also has a CD-ROM included with some nice designs on it. Some of them are "take-apartable", which means you can use just a portion of the designs or rearrange the elements the way you want to.

The only drawback to the book (the reason for 4 stars) is that it really depends on the original book for a lot of the basics. I guess that is not so bad, and I did buy the parent book, but had I not, it would have been more than a little irritating. Just be aware that this book, while having good projects and nice designs included, really needs the parent book for the full experience.

By the way, the original book is very good, for newbies like me, with the basics.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not as expected
I wouldn't go high on this book. It doesn't teach you much, only describes some simple techniques and ideas on what can you use embroidery, for example on a cushion cover (like you didn't know that before). To use the given designs that came on a cd-rom, you have to have a special software that costs you a small fortune. I am giving it 3 stars for the colors and designs only.

Basically this books tell you that you can join your quilt layers by an embroidery machine and provided some designs suitable for this purpose.

It's loaded with pictures and do like that it comes with a CD and the designs that go with the various projects is really helpful as well.You can enlarge any of the small projects to make bed sized quilts which is nice.

4-0 out of 5 stars Read the small print
I have always loved Donna Dewbeery's one stroke painting.I was delighted to find her designs in this machine embroidery book.Thedesigns are lovely and have the colors and blending of one stroke painting.However, being new to machine embroidery I did not check the size of the individual designs.At present I uses a machine that has a hoop that will accomadate a 4x4 design.I think that the designs are too dense to reduce from the 7x5 to the 4x4.After I have more experience and talk to my instructor I intend to try and use them. I read and reread the pages of this bookand nowhere did I find a reference to the many of the designs being suitable only for the 7" hoop in the information available at the time of purchase. As the instructions for embroidery are generalized, this probably is not the book for the beginner.I have other books from Amazon that are better tutorials.It is a lovely book and I do not regret my purchase

tis book answers all the questions that anyone might have about digitizing and makes it so easy .great book

3-0 out of 5 stars Somewhat Informative but CD does not install correctly and theres no support
Book is interesting. Easy Reading.I wish there were more in-dept detail. If you have never read anything on digitizing this book will kind of helps. The authors software may have more feature on his digitizing software than the readers or the path to the function maybe different so sometimes it does seem a little useless.If you already have some information on digitizing, then you wish the book had a little more information on an intermediate level.If the book does have more details and it's on the CD, it was no use to me since my laptop with Vista 64 will not install the CD correctly plus I could not run the CD independently without the install. Some CDs included with tutorial books allows you to run the program without install. I really wanted to use the CD's feature on the tutorial, the "Color Run Files" view the Sample Videos and Supporting Files but it was a big disappointment for me.I called a company which was promoted on the book for support on the CD install but they was no help.They asked me to call the publisher for tech support on how to open the CD.I don't understand why Krause publication has anything to do with whoever designed the CD for the book since they just print the book and not write the book.It was a crazy response.I guess they just want to get me off the phone.You may have better luck than me if you have an older computer running older operating system which may run the benefit of the CD .

Learn how to create beautiful woodland pictures using various combinations of two simple machine stitches. Broken down into clear, concise techniques, each project is accompanied by many helpful photographs for each inspirational piece—whether threading on to hand-colored backgrounds, or blending stitches, stunning results are easily attained. The raised effects are derived from a clever use of perspective—with muted, soft tones in the background and strong, vibrant colors in the foreground—producing a beautiful three dimensional finished look. Divided into three essential sections, the four detailed step-by-step projects cover a wide range of subjects—from the materials required and painting backgrounds to mastering thread-painting skills and creating realistic trees, foliage, flowers, and woodland paths.

Awesome book. Typical of the English style thread work. Very detailed and great photos to go with the instructions.

5-0 out of 5 stars Machine Embroidered Woodlands
Absolutely beautiful book. Well written, clear, concise instructions that are easy to follow. Allison Holt is a master at machine embroidery. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in doing this kind of work. Once you master her techniques you will look at pre-programed machine embroidery in a different light.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Artist Shares. . .
I've been doing freehand machine embroidery for 30 years, and no, I'm not in Alison Holt's class!It is incredibly sad that the artistry practiced for 100 years on conventional sewing machines has been eclipsed by passive/computer generated embroidery by specialized machines.The difference between true freehand and passive machine embroidery is the difference between painting on canvas freehand and painting by numbers.They are two completely different beasts.

I already own, and highly recommend, Ms. Holt's DVD on freehand embroidery.It's miles ahead of what I've seen put out by others.

Ms. Holt is, first and foremost, a gifted artist.She simply chose machine embroidery as her medium when in college in the 70's.Her basic technique involves taking a photograph and adapting it to work on fabric.There are many, many different avenues to achieving the desired product.Ms. Holt combines her freehand embroidery with background painting on silk, then a cover with thread.Other artists may use various fabrics only combined with thread.Still others only use thread.What can be gained with this book is a close look at her thread technique. Unlike passive/computer embroidery, freehand can and does involve possibly dozens of different colors, grouped by colors.For example, a simple field of grass could take a dozen different colors--greens, browns, yellows, and even whites or reds.My thread library is over 1000 different colors.Unlike some other embroiderers, who are very dogmatic about using a specific thread, Ms. Holt (like me) is open to using all types of thread to achieve different effects.For example, using only cotton embroidery thread can lead to a rather flat appearance; different threads and give variety.

Though the illustrations are beautiful and worth having on their own, this book will be primarily of interest to those, like me, who have an interest in freehand embroidery.Or, those who are trapped in the constraints of the computer-generated machines who want to expand their artistry.The book itself is a high-quality paperback with lush coloring and thick, glossy pages.It will become a treasured part of my embroidery reference library.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous tutorial, fantastic illustrations
Alison shows us how to re-create her wonderful woodland scenes using just straight stitch and zigzag. Every step is clearly illustrated, and every thread colour change is charted, teaching us how to make a whole variety of textures, different leaves, bark, drifts of flowers, paths and rocks. In addition to techniques, she also shows how to combine elements from different photos, or crop, to make an interesting subject have the maximum impact. Excellent in every way. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Insultingly Short and Shallow
Creative Beginnings in Machine Embroidery / 1-57120-327-3

I've had my new Brother PE700II Embroidery Machine for less than two months now, so I've still got a lot to learn about embroidery. I purchased this book, along with several others, in the hopes of learning how to get the most out of my new machine. I can state, unequivocally, that of the eight books I ordered, this is the shortest, most shallow one of the batch.

The length of this book is almost insulting. It's one thing to know from the Amazon product page that it's only 63 pages - it's another thing to receive the book in the mail on the same day as your Good Housekeeping magazine and PC Gamer magazine and realize that this book is thinner than both of those magazines. It's an even bigger slap in the face when you open the book and see the large fonts, the liberally unused white space, and the plethora of "isn't this a pretty quilt" pictures that comprise nearly the entire book.

Content-wise, there is *nothing* here that isn't covered better and in more depth elsewhere. The whole book, in fact, feels like a cheap and hasty cash-in attempt, which is pretty darn ironic considering that the *FIRST PAGE* starts off with a massively scolding section about how it's totally wrong and inappropriate to borrow an embroidery pattern from a friend because that's an abuse of the copyright. Fair enough, but I wish someone would tell author Patty Albin that throwing together a completely shallow, cookie-cutter "Sewing 101" book and slapping the word "Creative" anywhere in the title name is false-freaking-advertising. There's an *entire page* dedicated in this book to power strips and surge protectors - complete with TWO pictures of surge protectors! There's another *entire page* concerning electric battery backups! The section on irons (yes, there's a *section* on irons) includes a big, full-color picture of an iron... with the super-helpful caption "A good iron is invaluable." Gee, thanks, Patty - I never would have guessed that from my Sewing 101 and Quilting 101 books. Can we talk about embroidery now? Specifically, creative beginnings in such?

Once you plow past the first half of the book, there's a decent (but unforgivably short) section on stabilizers. And, yeah, you definitely need to know about those in embroidery, but All About Machine Arts covers stabilizers in WAY more depth and detail... and it's not even an exclusive embroidery book. In fact, I'll just save some time here and point out that *everything* in "Creative Beginnings" is covered in more depth, better detail, and better pictures in "All About Machine Arts" - so if you own that book, you don't need this one. And if you don't own "All About Machine Arts", I recommend it over this book - it's not flawless, but it's extremely helpful, and has more varied and useful projects than this watered-down waste of money that actually thinks advice like "You don't always need a reason or occasion to make a quilt. You can make one just because it's fun," is somehow revolutionary or worth paying for.

If this book had come with the usual array of embroidery designs on CD (usually 50! or 75! designs that actually turn out to be 17 designs, slightly modified each time to triple the final count, but what-can-you-do), I might have been slightly less harsh on it, but the whole book just feels like a complete slap in the face. I can see why the publishers haven't agreed to use the "look inside this book" feature on Amazon - if I'd browsed through this book at all before hand, I wouldn't have bought it. I strongly recommend you pass on this one - I can honestly say I learned *nothing* from this book, and - as I said before - I've been embroidering for all of two months now, so I'm hardly an expert who knows all the tricks.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best book ever on the topic of Sewing Machine Arts
I tracked down this book when a sewing blogger claimed she was inspired by it.What a great book!It is absolutely packed with practical information, useful tips and beautiful illustrations.It is not a project book but rather a reference book coveringall kinds of techniques to embellish your own projects. The book is full of the kind of information you would glean from attending zillions of classes with people who know everything you want to know.It is wonderfully organized as an A to Z reference for home sewers and quilters.

I also thought it was just wonderful to read.I have been carrying it around with me for two weeks.I have been sewing for 50 years and I have learned something new on nearly every page.There is a reason why it gets 5 stars from everyone.Whether you are a beginner or just want to take your machine skills to the next level, you need this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive
All About Machine Arts / 1-57120-227-7

When I bought my embroidery machine, I also bought up pretty much every embroidery-related book that was recommended to me on Amazon. I was a little disappointed to learn that "All About Machine Arts" wasn't an exclusively embroidery book - until I opened it and started reading.

This book is *incredibly* comprehensive and helpful. I learned more about machine embroidery techniques and accessories than I did from the other dozen or so embroidery books I purchased. There's a huge wealth of information to be had here for sewing techniques as well - I've been quilting for years and there's stuff in here that I've never seen or used before, which is extremely exciting. There's also a lot of serger-related material, too, which wasn't too useful for me (I don't own a serger), but was easy to skip over to the quilting and embroidering and sewing techniques.

There's so much to love about this book - every page has half a dozen color pictures illustrating the techniques. In the section on foams and toppers, for instance, (material used between the cloth and the embroidery thread to give the final design 'lift' and definition), there are several "with" and "without" pictures showing the differences in technique. There are a lot of good tips and tricks offered, and very rarely does the information feel obvious or like "filler" material. What I like most about this book is the way all the techniques are combined and interchanged to create something beautiful - embroidery is used on quilting blocks; decorative sewing is used to finish the sides of an embroidery work; and embellishments are added subtly to just about everything. The whole feel is very holistic and brings together a variety of techniques to create simple, beautiful things.

I really can't think of anything critical to say about this book, except that maybe some of the techniques won't be so easy to perform on the cheaper, hobbyist machines (and how many hobbyists own a full-fledged serger along with the sewing machine and embroidery machine?), but that won't stem your enjoyment of this comprehensive book. If you're a quilter, I'd recommend buying this in conjunction with The Quilter's Companion; if you're an embroidery hobbyist, I'd recommend Embroidery Machine Essentials as a companion to this book (although there is a lot of overlap, naturally). ...

Received it in a timely manor.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice book
This is a nice book, except beware - there are MANY erros in pictures, templates and in measurments which she has become aware of and corrections are on her site, so you will need to correct some measurments and some templates that errors on them.
Most projects are nice and will make cute gifts - and most directions are easy to follow. The DVD that comes with it is very good.I am hoping she comes out with a corrected book with additional projects soon.

If you have an embroidery sewing machine you will love this book!I have done many in-the-hoop type embroidery projects with my machine so I was curious as to what this book would offer by way of interesting projects.
The projects you can create with this book, and the CD that comes with it, are simply lovely.I have already made some of the projects more than once and will make them again and again.
The instructions are very well written and clear and because of the in-the-hoop method the creations are very tidy with seams that are flawless.

I went to the web site and was able to make the necessary corrections.Overall, I am enjoying the book and the video and highly recommend for anyone wanting to try quilting in the hoop. ... Read more
