Singer Instructions for Art and Embroidery


What a fabulous book! I have been going through my copy lesson by lesson and now up to lesson 7. I know - I haven't made that much progress since I began, but trying to master each as I move along. I am still in awe of the beautiful handiwork made with a straight stitch sewing machine. Sincer outdid themselves on this book!

Wanted to share a fabulous web link for the book. You can download the 1911 (yes, the very, very early one!) edition. Some wonderful person archived it, and it is a FREE download. Thank you VERY much to Odile Berget of France for showing me where it was at.

Have fun with the book - send me pics of anything you do and I will share them with others. You are a bunch of talented ladies and gents!

For now, I must continue playing with two sewing machines Singer sent me. Will share the gorgeous stitches later (after I finish playing some more and take time to grab the camera!). Happy Sewing, Charlene
