While perfect embroidery with every stitch perfectly tensioned and placed every time is a myth, quality embroidery is not! By understanding the embroidery recipe and following the quality formula, it’s totally possible for any embroiderer to produce quality results!

Quality embroidery is more than just a good embroidery design. Quality embroidery is like a choice gourmet cookie or a finely choreographed dance. It results from a precise interaction of key ingredients:

  • A well-prepared design that is well-suited to the fabric and item being embroidered
  • A properly maintained and tuned machine using the correct needle for the thread and fabric
  • The right thread for the job—both top and bobbin
  • An item suitable for embroidery that is smoothly hooped at the right position in the right size hoop with the hoop properly tensioned, the right topping (if required), and the right backing


    One convenient download includes:
  • 360+ page eBook in PDF format
  • 20 multi-format designs for 4x4" hoops
  • Applique templates
  • Color sequences

Artwork by Lindee and manually digitized (not autopunched) by Lindee G Embroidery using high-end professional software.

Available formats: (Most) ; all fit 100x100mm hoop

This book is encyclopaedic on the subject of machine embroidery I feel I have learned so much by downloading and printing it out (I like to read hard copy). I am fairly new to embroidery and have been very tentative at trying out new things, but reading this has given me the confidence to widen my scope and try more challenging designs. Lindee your designs are brilliant, you are brilliant and thank you so much for this comprehensive and most readable bible on embroidery Ray Crawford
