I have just started learning to embroider, even though I am a life long fiber person and stitcher. But I always stuck to running stitch over patchwork and cross stitch. Debbie’s patterns are unusual and portray little stories about everyday life. They are challenging enough with varied stitches but easy enough for any beginner to try. --Marsha Silver

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Get started with a hand embroidery practice--or get back to one after years away--with this bundle that will give you a few easy stitches to start with--and then add in manageable complexity. 

You'll get 3 patterns printed to cotton in color, ready to stitch, no transfer needed. The three are not only great starting points, they look great displayed together.

Also included is a four-page, illustrated stitching guide.

You will need your own needle, 8" embroidery hoop, and embroidery floss to complete each project.

Love these kits!

I ordered a couple of the bundles with the pattern and instructions. I have not done embroidery in many years and decided to try again. These have easy to understand instructions and great patterns on fabric. I can’t wait to start my second project!

FAQs

Can I do this if I've never embroidered?

Yes. All the instructions you'll need are included. If you've never handled a needle and thread, it might take a while to get comfortable. Take your time, keep your thread length under 18", and just be sure you're not tangling things and that you're pulling the thread all the way through. Once you've got this rhythm established with simple straight stitches, you can keep adding to the stitches you've mastered. The stitching guides actually tell you which stitches to start with on a design if you're new to embroidery.

I see the option to add on scissors and needle minder. Do I need them?

You don't need a needle minder. It's simply a nice extra: it attaches to your work in progress with a magnet and will hold your needle when you need to put it down. 

You will need scissors, but any scissors that you have already will also work. Our scissors are the right size for fitting into the storage tin that comes with each kit, and I like having a few pairs for my my many works in progress.

What can I do with my finished project?

You can finish it in the hoop and hang it or get a frame with a circular cutout and glass cover. My favorite thing to do is to finish the design in a nicer hoop and then display on plate stand or small easel. I add it to styled vignettes around my house.

Will the printed pattern wash out?

No. You may wash your finished project but the printed design will not wash away.

What's the difference between kits and fabric prints?

The kits include not only the fabric print but also floss, needles, a storage tin, and hoop. The fabric prints include just the fabric print and the stitching guide. You will need to supply hoop, needles, and floss.
