Welcome back to Threadville, Pennsylvania, where crafts are king, and a “killer” sewing machine lives up to its name…
Darlene Coddlefield, the winner of a national sewing competition, has come to Willow Vanderling’s embroidery shop, In Stitches, to be presented with a top-of-the-line Chandler Champion sewing and embroidery machine as her prize. But Darlene’s triumph is short-lived after she’s found dead under her sewing table, apparently crushed by the heavy machine.
It soon becomes clear that this was no freak accident. Who had it in for Darlene Coddlefield? The long string of suspects includes Darlene’s fire chief husband. So Willow and her best friend, Haylee, become volunteer firefighters to uncover the truth. But when a second sewing machine sparks trouble, the friends realize they may have jumped from the frying pan into the fire…

Janet Bolin may have too many hobbies. She loves reading, writing, sewing, knitting, crocheting, and going on long walks with her dogs. She believes she wants to make quilts. Sometimes she tries to teach herself (not very successfully) how to play the piano.
A few years ago, she discovered embroidering using software and high-tech sewing machines. She's not certain that everything she owns simply must be embroidered, but creating the designs is really, really fun. And they'd go so well on crazy quilts…
She lives way out in the country, a long drive from stores that sell supplies for people who like to create and embellish their own textiles and garments.
Sooooo….she invented Threadville, a village where everything she might want for her projects is on one short street, and she created Willow Vanderling, who is thrilled to own a machine embroidery boutique selling the gorgeous threads, fabrics, software, and machines that she wishes she could find just down the block.
From time to time, Willow and her Threadville friends may need to take time out from their creative work to solve a murder or two. She hopes you'll join them…
