Embroidery Stitch Library + A Giveaway (CLOSED)

The Embroidery Stitch Library is up and running! If you haven't already, go take a look and let me know what you think. The library will be updated frequently with not only embroidery stitches, but patterns and projects as well (so you can have some inspiration for practicing your stitches!).

Each stitch has a step by step photo tutorial, with written instructions (in English). I have tried to make the photographs easy enough to follow that you can learn a stitch from start to finish without really needing to read the whole post.

Projects in the library link back to recommended stitches, if there is a stitch you don't know you will be able to click back and learn the stitch while you make a fun new project. There are even tutorials on creating your own patterns to embroider!

To celebrate the stitch library going live, I am hosting a giveaway of embroidery goodies! The giveaway is open worldwide and the winner will be announced Nov 5th. To enter, use the rafflecopter widget below - allow time to load.

  1. OHHH! I love the stitch library! I needed a great reference for refreshers to give myself a bit of confidence before I start a project! Thank you!

  2. that's exactly what I was looking for as well, thank you! I was brought here by coincidence while browsing away on Pinterest (where else, hah...) for felt Christmas ornament ideas and I'll definitely be needing those tutorials for decorating my ornaments! and it's really nice of you to "give away" all of this knowledge for free, thanks again! :)

  3. After taking a quick stroll through the library, I have already gleaned some new terms and had my appetite whetted for many fun projects.Though I do cross-stitch, I have always been intimidated by embroidery, something I recall my mother and sisters doing and turning out lovely pillows et al. I am pleased to have come upon your site and will use it for reference so as not to be afraid to thread the needle and jump in. Happy stitching to everyone.

  4. I really don't know what happened.. I landed here looking for some quick embroidery inspiration and that was like and hour and 30 mins ago. You guys have some great tips all over this blog. I can't stop scrolling!

  5. Since you have the basic stitches in your library, it would be nice to have tutorials on more of the harder stitches, and where to use them to highlight one's embroidery best.
