“'The most important book for any textile student or machine embroiderer'...that sums it up neatly...Those who teach in art colleges and curate fashion and textile collections as well as historians of textiles, technology and education will find much within its pages. Makers of all descriptions will find engaging its emphasis on the machine as a tool...Excellent and abundant illustrations are supported by equally excellent captions that include details of materials, methods and dimensions...The book functions, in part, as an introduction to the MMU collection which not only includes designs and textiles--produced commercially and by post-1970 students--but the machines themselves.” ―Crafts Magazine
