Before I got into embroidery, I was a multimedia developer using such programs as Flash, Director, and Authorware. When we apply the term multimedia to embroidery, we generally mean “mixed media”—incorporating other techniques or products with machine embroidery. I’ve combined ribbon embroidery with machine embroidery as well as buttons, crystals, sequins and other trims, ink, paint, paint sticks, crayons, and colored pencils to name a few.
Since Echidna P.I.E. is a new concept and we want to meet your needs and expectations, we’ve listened to you and made some enhancements to the program. The following email was sent to Echidna Platinum members from Gary Walker at Echidna. I’m reposting it here to answer questions.
What is the Echidna P.I.E.?
P.I.E. stands for Premium Inspiration and Education and consists of 12 x monthly projects covering 12 different embroidery techniques. Created and written by Lindee Goodall, each monthly P.I.E. includes excellent, detailed project and lesson notes in a printable PDF format plus the designs required to complete the project for that month.
What does the monthly P.I.E cost?
I’ve been bombarded with questions concerning Echidna P.I.E. since writing How to Get Your Own Slice of P.I.E. so to clear those up, I’ve compiled them into this post. As new questions come up, I’ll add them here with their answers.

Mac users rejoice! Briton Leap has expanded their line-up of Macintosh embroidery software to include 3 products:
This month’s project we’re going quick and easy with lovely little double drawstring bags with French seams sewn in sheer fabrics. I used chiffon for the yellow bag with the marigold and batiste for the all white bag with the cosmos. Wouldn’t these make beautiful hostess gifts for a bride’s breakfast?
