Hi-I'm a newbie to this site and to machine embroidery. Are there any good, easy to follow reference books for machine embroidery? It can get frustrating when you think you're creating a masterpiece and it turns into a bird's nest....or two!!Thank you!

I started out with the Jeannie Twigg books. The problem with books, the techniques can be outdated as new ideas and products are always in demand.

My favorite sites are Techniques and Tips at Embroidery Library and Tips (especially downloading and saving your designs) at Anna Bove Embroidery.

Click here for Embroidery Library and here for Anna Bove Embroidery.
