A precisely written tutorial which was easy to understand with pictures to emphasis and elaborate. I had always wonder the basics of embroidery and I was so grateful to be given a chance to peruse it! I have a much better understanding now and I can't wait to get my hands to embroider more as there were so many templates in this book! An awesome reference book for beginners like me!
Initially, I wanted to embroider one hands on with the e-book but alas... aside from being at work, I'm currently busy with decluttering at home so everything is in a mess right now. I'll definitely share one with a hands on embroidery when I'm free of all this mess! Can't wait to have everything settled down before the New Year!
