Embroidery Machine Essentials: Basic Techniques

This book goes into more detail of how to do specialized embroidery projects. At first I was disappointed, because it was so thin. But it is filled with information. There is not too much repetition from her first book. If you have to choose only one of her books, then get the first one. If you are ready to do more advanced work, then move onto this one. It will put more umph into your embroidery.
