Hand Embroidery Essentials Guide - Digital Download


Over the years, I’ve fielded many questions from newbies and advanced stitchers alike about where I source my tools and supplies. I wanted to create a comprehensive guide that answers all of these questions - and more - in one place. This guide, a digital download, details everything you need to set yourself up for success with hand embroidery. I’ve written over 25 pages of tips and resources you won’t find anywhere else. Direct links to my favorite must-have supplies are also provided. You can expect my honest reviews and reflections on what I’ve learned over my years as a full-time embroidery artist.

Sections include guides to selecting the best hoops, needles, threads, fabric, scissors, and various supplemental tools and aids, as well as methods to transfer your designs, different ways to finish your embroidery (including framing), and an exhaustive resources list, including my go-to books, videos, online and in-person classes, patterns, and kits. Frequently asked questions are answered in many sections as well.

This guide does not teach you how to stitch and it does not contain patterns. I do provide guidance about the best places to learn stitches and to purchase patterns. 

I live in the United States, so most of the resources I share are from U.S.-based companies.
