I'm Writing a 2nd Hand Embroidery Book!

I have some extremely exciting news to share with you! Earlier this year my first book, How to Embroider Texture and Pattern was released into the wild. You have been loving it and it's been thrilling to see some of the project you've stitched from my book.

I had a blast creating the designs and sharing tips and tricks with you. The whole process was a really fun experience. Well, guess what?

I'm working on a second hand embroidery book!

Yes, you read that right! Book two is in the works right now and will hopefully be available late next year. I'm so thankful my publisher Fox Chapel Publishing trusted in me to write a second hand embroidery tutorial book. As many of you know, I love hand embroidering my wardrobe and anything I can wear. This inspired the focus for my second book, which will be all about shoe embroidery. Much like my first book, this one will also feature a stitch glossary, a wide variety of designs, step-by-step tutorials, tips, and so much more.

I'm having so much fun creating designs for this second book and cannot wait to share all the shoes I've been stitching with you. Happy stitching! -Melissa
