My Book Review of “The 12 Week Year”, by Brian P. Moran & Michael Lennington ~ 4 Stars

If I had to sum up The 12 Week Year, I would have to say in a nutshell it was about breaking things down. Taking your yearly goals and ambitions, and breaking them down into 12 week sections.

This is a great question that is often asked by our clients. It is fairly simple to answer when you understand the process of embroidery.
