Breaking News: New Book App UPDATED

Meredith Willet's little spiral bound book, Knots, Fur and Turkey Work,  will be available as an app March 15, 2018.  It will cost $12.99.  You can find a link on The Meredith Collection’s website on March 15, or find it in the app store.  I am assuming this is Apple only and available only on iTunes but I don't know for certain.

Remember, apps that are not updated as your phones and tablets are updated constantly will cease to work.  That's how software is, it goes out of style eventually.  Buying an app is not like buying a book.  Just FYI.

UPDATE:  I'm told Meredith has added more stitch diagrams to the app version of the book, which is a nice touch!

Plunging the Ends to the Back Side

Anna Scott's latest embroidery use metal threads for accents, so she has to figure out how to plunge the ends of this rather fat thread to the back and secure them well.  I thought you'd find it interesting how she uses a loop to lasso the end to yank them to the back and then unwraps the metallic foil to secure the back side.  Personally I'd be very worried about unwrapping the thread on the back as it might start to unwrap on the front but all this is food for thought.  After all, we have wired threads and beading wire, not to mention goldwork threads, to handle in our stitching lives.
