Sue Spargo has a great one called, Creative Stitching. For those of you that are left-handed, this is a great book: Left-handed Embroiderer's Companion by Yvette Stanton. She also has a book for right-handers: Embroidery Reference Book Right-Handed Embroiderer's Companion. If you have an iPad, bring it along, there is a great website we can refer to.
Tonal fabrics or solids work great.
Both for hand and machine. To use specialty threads with your machine, you may need a "Metallic Needle", a Denim Needle, and a Leather Needle. (Test all your threads to ensure you have a needle you can thread and sew with) for hand use.. suggestions: Chenille Needles #18, and #24, Milliners Size 1
