Postcard Reviews

This is the perfect project to combine your hand stitching with your sewing machine.

Everything you need to know is included, from transferring patterns, to making up your desired project.

The embroidery is just divine, all the stitches you need are shown both visually and written so they are simple to understand.

The projects are small and beautiful, and very useful. Each technique is explained and the patterns are included. The Notebook is the ideal project to practice your stitching and looks amazing.

I love this book. It is simple but the finish of the designs is absolutely beautiful. they would make pretty gifts to give away and if you are a beginner or someone who has been embroidering for ever, this is a book you will love and enjoy.
