Embroidery Tutorials

As all of you are aware I began an Embroidery tutorial with promises of continuing. Just like everyone else there are so many things that I want to do and so little time. But, never fear I have found a website, and with the authors permission I am providing a link in this post and then in a permanent position in the right column that gives you excellent instructions on many embroidery stitches.

Mary Corbet's Needle 'N Thread website is just the ticket to learning embroidery stitches from basic to complicated. Mary's videos are clear and concise. She divides the tutorials into these sections:

  • Line Stitches and Bands
  • Chain, Fly, and Buttonhole Stitches
  • Detached Stitches and Knots
  • Filling Stitches
  • Miscellaneous Embroidery Techniques
As an added bonus she also has patterns and links to other embroidery information. You'll want to bookmark her website so that you can go back to watch and learn each stitch. Have fun and I would love to see all of your beautiful creations!

I understand! I keep on thinking I am going to have time to at least make more things for my Etsy shop- oh, well. Life is life and we can only hope that what we actually do is beautiful and touches people.

Post Script: Tag, you're it!

Tagged you in my little ol' blog. Come, and see what I mean.

espionage said...

I double-tagged you because I have so few blogger friends! (That doesn't necessarily mean you have to list 14 things... unless you want!) Now off to double-tag a few more people!
