Now that the second book arrived, I actually opened it up and read it from cover to cover. It will be even more useful as I progress in machine embroidery. The book answered a lot of questions and helped clear up some misconceptions I picked up. All-in-all, I think the book has good information about moving on to bigger and better embroidery, what you need to resize (if you can with your machine), and doesn't feel nearly as dated as the "stabilize" book. This one is a keeper.
As for which software to own, well apples is apples, but your taste buds soon inform you which is the nicest variety for your particular preferences. The same is true for software, no book can tell you which software is going to be best for you, if the user interface isn't one you can feel comfortable in, its not because the program is no good, its because your interface preferences as a user don't match the programs interface. I owned 2 different software packages before I realised I loathed key board driven software, disliked modular software that required you left one part of a program to use a different module to make a change to a design, then use another module , well need I go on. I struck lucky on my third software package, I should mention it gets very expensive finding the right program to suit your user preferences. A book can't give you that, something else I learned is it takes time, effort, commitment and patience. Oh and the telephone number of a good wig maker because you will get frustrated and pull out your hair because the silly /// machine messes up. Sigh, a much better aid is a mirror, as you'll get an instant answer to why it didn't do what you wanted, you wont like it, but most problems are caused by the person in charge of the machine.Read more ›
What I found very useful was the description of the different types of software. I received a "Junior" version of digitizing software with my machine and have been trying to decide if the software I have will meet my needs or if I need to upgrade in the same software brand or purchase other software. The book helped me evaluate the options. (For now, I'll experiment with the software I have.)
What I was hoping for that the book did not provide was comparisons of different software. I was able to identify what features were important for me in chosing software, but I'm still looking for a comprehensive list of software providers and an apples to apples comparison of features, cost and ease of use. I've found many companies offer free or low cost short term trials to try before you buy.Read more ›
Since the "Free CD-Rom" was missing from my shipment, I was unable to review it. The seller said I could have a partial credit on my next purchase or mail it back. Both options were not cost effective. You will probably have better luck with the seller, and since the price was low, I found a few other books like "The Machine Embroiderer's Bible" that was more helpful for my new machine. My machine manufacturer (Brother International) website has lots of videos that help regardless of what machine you own.
