Embroidering with a sewing machine is exciting, immediate, and affordable; this practical book shows you how to do it.

Topics covered include: learning how to set up the machine and carry out basic cleaning and maintenance; discovering which thread types, fabrics, and mixed media elements are most suitable for machine embroideries; exploring how to use the pressure foot to turn functional utility stitches into exciting surface decoration; working freely with dropped feeder teeth and an embroidery foot and learning how to alter the tension to create different effects; and using soluble film to enhance your pictures, and stitch realistic thread paintings of landscape, animal, and bird embroideries.
