Explore the enchanting possibilities of lace embroidery with designer Hope Yoder as your guide! Find out how to select a blank that will hold up to intricate stitching, and learn Hope'’s tricks for aligning designs and hooping tricky corners. Use easy merging techniques to transform a corner design into a lovely medallion motif. Whether you prefer re-hooping with templates or software strategies, you’'ll discover a method you love! Perfectly pair decorative stitches with embroidery designs to create a stunning effect, and conquer tricky knits as you stabilize and stitch a romantic, lace-embroidered sweater. Finally, use in-the-hoop shadow work to beautifully adorn a blouse, then set it off with a stunning Australian windowpane technique.
