Machine Embroidery on Difficult Materials by Deborah Jones. Embroider leathers, silks, synthetics and chiffons successfully every time!

Take your machine embroidery to new heights by working with materials readily found, but often overlooked. You know, the ones that pucker and run... buckle and stretch... break your thread... or bury your embroidery in mounds of plush pile?

With the expert advice in Machine Embroidery on Difficult Materials, you can embroider even the most challenging materials with consistently beautiful results.

Deborah Jones has embroidered it all, from slippery synthetic sheers to the thickest velvet. In this authoritative reference, she unlocks the secrets to embroidering on 18 of the most tempting yet challenging materials:
  • Unstable fabrics - lightweight knits, stretch knits, bulky knits, gauze
  • Densely woven fabrics - lightweight nylon, coarse nylon, polyester satin and acetate, silk charmeuse
  • Pile and napped fabrics - velvet, terry, fleece, faux fur
  • Sheers - natural-fiber and synthetic
  • "Unfabrics" - vinyl, faux suede, leather
This complete reference puts everything you need at your fingertips:
  • Which needles, stabilizers, marking and hooping methods work best for each fabric
  • Clear, empowering explanations, so you'll know why these challenging fabrics behave (and misbehave) the way they do
  • Bonus CD-ROM with 14 embroidery designs in 38 fabric-specific versions and 12 file formats!

Creative Dyeing by Suzanne McNeill. For Fabric Arts With Markers & Alcohol Inks.

Adding color to fabrics, lace, ribbon and threads is exciting and simple. Dyeing with inexpensive and easily available markers and inks is really a fun process. Since markers are not drippy, I can watch a movie or take my markers, board and fabric to color almost anywhere - while I am 'waiting' at school or in an office.

I add alcohol at the end and simply let it sit and dry overnight. In the morning, it feels like Christmas surprise with gifts of wonderful color on all my fabrics.

Add fabulous color to scarves, and save all your scraps to create wonderful postcards, ATCs, wearable and quilted collage hangings and gifts.
