What Others Are Saying
“Free-motion stitching is, essentially, drawing with thread, and the designs can be simple or complex. Shaffer explores the decorative possibilities of both styles in this friendly, accessible guide. VERDICT: Free-motion stitching has applications for garment and home decor sewing as well as quilting, and Shaffer's unintimidating style will encourage experimentation.” —Library Journal
