The Gladiolus is the second in the Birth Month Flower series of Echidna P.I.E. (P.I.E. stands for Premium Inspiration and Education).
Month 2 (August) is all about 'Perfect Placement' and if you have a sewing field smaller than the 200 mm x 200 mm size that the Birth Month Flowers designs are optimised for, Lindee has split the designs for 130 mm x 180 mm sewing fields and she will explain how to get perfect design placement.
Whether you are a beginner or experienced machine embroiderer, you will discover that Lindee's teaching is very thorough, well-presented, jargon free and easy-to-understand. Your embroidery skills will blossom as will the pleasure of creating beautiful new projects. If you missed the Echidna August P.I.E. which was all about appliqué you can purchase it here.
