Creative Beginnings in Machine Embroidery
by Patty Albin

This book is an excellent resource for new embroiderers. It gives a great overview of what supplies are needed and tips on many things like scissors, needles, stabilizers and how to use many of those things. For example, how to carefully tear away stabilizers, how often to change needles and how to properly wind bobbins. Patty includes many photographs and detailed instructions written in plain, simple English. It is 63 pages so it isn't overwhelming but gives the basics of machine embroidery so you can understand "how it works and what you can do with it".

Patty says in her Getting Started section on page 4 of this book:

"In between, each chapter has basic information you need to know about machine embroidery. You'll also find helpful tips (Patty's Pointers), to do lists to prepare you for embroidery, and exercises to learn specific skills. By the end of the book, you'll be familiar with your embroidery machine and the materials used for machine embroidery."
