Included in the booklet is a bibliography listing several books that I have in my studio library and I am very lucky to be able to turn to them whenever I am looking for inspiration. So, even if you can’t access the MS Word Document right now, you can access the bibliography and get inspired for yourself.

As mentioned before, all these books are in my studio library (except Raising Surface with Machine Embroidery which I currently can’t find but which I hope will turn up!). The links will take you to an associated Amazon page where you can order the books. In the interests of transparency, the Amazon links are affiliate links which allows me to earn a small commission should you buy one of these books through these links. I appreciate and fully respect that not everyone likes to use Amazon!
At the time of re-publishing in 2020, we are in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic and all teaching is suspended. As teaching is how I usually earn my living, I am having to adopt other methods to try to get by until my studio is open to students once again. Thank you for your understanding.
