BERNINA The BIG Book of Embroidery
This book is a comprehensive machine embroidery book with a wealth of information for the novice as well as the experienced stitcher. The book starts at the beginning with information about designs, stabilizers, embroidery supplies, and hooping methods. From there you explore basic editing functions that includes resizing, rotating, and Word Art. Then you move on to more exciting functions such as Color Wheel, Endless Embroidery, and Importing Decorative Stitches. Next comes design placement. Using low tech methods with hoop templates and paper design templates is a good place to start. Then you can move on to high tech machine functions such as Virtual Positioning and Pinpoint Placement (on specific models). After you get past the basics, you’re ready to explore stitching techniques. These include In-the-Hoop Projects, Lettering and Monogramming, Freestanding Designs, Piecing, Quilting, Applique and more!
