Ohhh Kay! Here's another prize that is being added to the U-Handblog End of Year draw in which 1st prize is a smashing Janome sewing machine. The draw opens tomorrow!!
This book is 1 of 2 just published craft books that we are giving away! Both books are published by David & Charles - the same folks who are publishing my tome.
The 2nd book to be given away is reviewed here.
Here we have a fun and breezy craft title on free hand and free style machine sewing - literally doodling with your sewing machine. I have to say 'doodling around' looks very appealing especially as I spend all of my time sewing accurate seam allowances and neatly up matching up edges. In the book Poppy Treffry encourages you to do away with the neatness and 'colour over the lines'.
For those who haven't tried it before there is a clear and good introduction into freestyle machine embroidery and whilst Poppy provides lots of inspiration and advice she encourages you to throw caution to the wind and dive in. I like it when there's no right or wrong in something.
Poppy Treffry's new book: Free & Easy Stitch Style.
Coming tomorrow: the U-Handbag End of year draw. It's a BIG 'un you don't wanna miss it!!
