Evening Edition! Heads Up–Free Kindle Book!

I just got a notice on facebook ((Thank you, Karen Pollard!)) letting me know of a great freebie on Amazon right now for kindle ---

The Sewing Machine Master Guide from Basic to Expert.

Book Description
Publication Date: September 24, 2013
This is the most comprehensive book about sewing machines available, yet is easy to navigate and understand. 
From basics to expert, it's two books in one, an efficient sewing machine guide and in-depth reference book that can stay with you for years to come.
Starting with introductory chapters on how to use a sewing machine, the book quickly progresses to in-depth coverage of advanced subjects. Both home machines and industrial machines are covered with sections dedicated to modern machines and vintage machines. Chapters on fabric, thread, stitches, needles, feet and setting up a sewing room will help unlock your creativity.
From straight stitch machines to electronic machines over 100 of the most popular home and industrial machines are featured with insights on capabilities for each type of machine. Older machines can have a service life of 80 years or more and are better suited for some types of work.
For other applications a modern electronic machine with the latest features may be needed. The chapter on buying recommendations will help you figure out what type of machine and features are best suited for your type of sewing.
Most people have a love/hate relationship with their sewing machines. They love them when the machine is working good, but hate them when frustrating problems arise. This book will empower you to eliminate the hate part of the relationship and put you in control of your machine.
In-depth chapters on adjusting tension, troubleshooting and maintenance will help you handle most problems with ease and to know which problems not to tackle.
The Sewing Machine Master Guide was written as both an eBook and print book using optimized re-flowable formatting for a perfect presentation on small or large devices. Everything from a basic eBook reader or Kindle to a large screen PC or Mac is supported.

  5. Thanks Bonnie, just bought with 1-click! :O)
    Have a great Christmas with your family.

  6. Thanks Karen And Bonnie!

  7. Never realized this until today. You can download a kindle book into your home computer and read it there. Then when I choose a reader or laptop I can download from my pc to the new item!!!! Great news!

    Since I am up in the air about which one product would suit my needs, I have yet to make a decision. Son in law told me just download those books to your own computer.

    Just did this with the book Bonnie is showing above. IT WORKED

    And thanks Bonnie!!!
    Smiles, JulieinTN

  8. Thank-you so much, both Karen and Bonnie. Just snagged my copy, so did our two daughters!

    Thank you! I managed to get it.

  10. Thank you for letting us know, I've downloaded the book too. I hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas. Thank you for all you do, I enjoy your blogging and your patterns and am in awe of your energy and drive! Eddie in Australia

  11. I just got my copy! This is one I would love to have "in hand", but for free on Kindle, I will take it. I have a great book on vintage machines that I have used to look up some of the ones I have. You can learn so much from a good book about a subject you love!

  12. Thanks, Karen & Bonnie! I just downloaded it to my Kindle Fire. Love those free books!

  13. Thanks for the heads-up, Bonnie! As a fellow vintage machine lover, this kind of information is always welcome!

  14. Oh What a great find for a free kindle book! I downloaded it this morning...maybe I can find my old little Singer in there and figure it out!! Happy Holidays..hugs, Julierose

  15. Just downloaded it! Thank you, Karen Pollard and Bonnie for pointing us in the right direction.

  16. Thanks Bonnie! I downloaded the book this morning for free.

  17. I have gotten two or three of the free Kindle books in the past, and found them to be so-so. But this one was a big winner. I am slowly going through it and there is a lot of information in it. I especially liked the section that explains how a sewing machine makes a locked stitch. Thanks for the heads up!

  18. Thanks so much for posting about this! I just downloaded it to my Nook with the Kindle app. Amazing to get this for free!

  19. Thank you for the connection to such a great resource! I'm an antique machine lover, and you have helped folks save many machines. I don't know how you manage to do so much and still be upright! So much travel must be tiring, but I'm so glad you share such amazing places in the world. You remind folks to focus on family and memories, esp at this crazy time of year. Enjoy your new cabinet knobs and bake lots of brownie incentives.

  20. Very late to get to the thread! BUT it was still a free download! WO HOO!

  21. Thanks for this Heads Up, Bonnie! Here it is Sunday and it still is free - woohoo.

  22. Thanks for the heads up Bonnie - just downloaded it even though I am looking at it almost 2 days after your post!

  23. Bummer! I missed out... can borrow it free, though!
