She starts by showing the fine tipped soldering iron she prefers and cautions there must be a holder to keep the iron off your work surface.
Chapter Two deals with machine stitching and embroidery. Since I don't have a fancy sewing machine, much less one that embroiders, I more or less skipped the chapter.
Although this was a fascinating read, I allowed time to get away from me, so had to return the book to the library on Saturday or pay a fine. The other chapters are:

I should probably add that I don't read e-mails, which means I don't answer them. So, blogger comments are my lifeline to you, my dear friends, followers, and occasional visitors.
