Learn a new skill and make a donation to the ACS

Talk about win-win.  For a $5 donation to the American Cancer Society, you can learn all about machine wrapped cording through a multi-media workbook.

According to its creator, Linda Matthews of Creative Textile and Quilting Arts, the  …multimedia ebook includes step-by-step instructions for making wrapped cording on your sewing machine, including video, sample photos, options and applications, tips and tricks, and resources.

The ebook requires the current version of Adobe Reader which is free, and contains its own flash player so you can view the video on your desktop without the hassle of downloading any further software. It also contains a printable copy of the lessons which you can use to compile a workbook for your samples.

All this is yours for a tiny little $5.00 donation. Go get it !

I previewed the Machine Wrapped Cording Workbook and it is not only a how-to, but what-to-do-with-it tutorial.  The workbook is easy to use, with clear instructions, great photos and a very helpful video.

I’m amazed at the beautiful workbook computer-savvy Linda has produced and equally impressed by her donation of all proceeds to the American Cancer Society through Fiberart For A Cause.
