I'm excited to announce the release of Hand Embroidery Essentials, a comprehensive resources guide for stitchers. Click here to order your copy. This digital download covers everything you need to know about supplies, learning resources, and tips and tricks to make your hand embroidery practice easier. Keep reading for details about an awesome giveaway happening in conjunction with the guide's release.
I'm often asked questions like "What fabric do you use?" or "How do you find frames for your work?" After many years spent sourcing the best supplies, I want to share my findings with you in one place. You'll find over 25 pages of detailed information, including my must-have items with links to purchase, too. You can expect my honest reviews and reflections on what I’ve learned over my years as a full-time embroidery artist.
Topics include selecting hoops, needles, threads, fabric, scissors, and supplemental tools and aids, as well as methods to transfer your designs and different ways to finish your embroidery (including framing). I've also created an exhaustive resources list, including my go-to books, videos, online and in-person classes, patterns, and kits.
