Mahwah, NJ ñ Janome America has released the second in a series of creative embroidery project books, which feature ideas for using the many Janome Memory Cards and PC Design Cards. Great Embroidery For Guys is Idea Book 2 in the Creative Concepts series. It features complete instructions for 13 embroidery projects; from sports accessories to lounge wear to a formal vest. The book will be distributed exclusively through authorized Janome dealers. Idea Book 1, The Lace Collection debuted to enthusiastic response in December of 2001.
"Interesting projects for the men in our lives are hard enough to come by, let alone ones that incorporate embroidery," says Jodi Bushman, Marketing Manager for Janome America. "We've pulled together a wide range of options to spark the embroiderer's imagination. I think there's something here for just about every kind of guy."
Flip through the 32-page, color-highlighted book to find a mixture of garments and accessories, such as a cabana shirt that will have him dreaming of white, sandy beaches; a director's chair from which to shout his orders; a monogrammed golf collection of head covers, hat and towel; even a classic smoking jacket.
