Doing this stitch bible helped me learn more about my machine. Some of the stitches came out unbalanced, and I am going to add pages after using the tools explained in the manual to balance the stitches. Which shows why it's important to do test stitching before putting new stitch patterns on projects.

Thank you for posting this. Getting ready to start the stitch bible and have a clearer idea of how it can tell me more. I'm a raw amateur.... Wouldn't it made a great baby book?!

Oh yes, you could do so much with decorative stitches to embellish a baby book, great idea! I also really enjoyed the sheer fun nature of cataloging the stitches because sometime we can get stuck or blocked in our sewing and just having something mindless yet functional and helpful to sew can sometimes get us out of the rut and ready to tackle other projects. Have fun with your stitch bible!
