What's the best embroidery method? There are so many different techniques to try.
You want a project that's easy but not boring. You want it to be gorgeous but not too time consuming. The right balance depends on your skill level and style.
I'm always looking for new styles to try. I can't stop making samplers... I like to jump all around and try a little bit of every technique!
Decorative stitching has such a long history. It's been done in a variety of forms all over the world.
Some people prefer counted cross stitch, but others adore blackwork or Swedish huck weaving.
I want to try them all! I love traditional needlearts and think it's important for them to find a place in the 21st century.
Please join me as I share what I've learned. I'll show you how to embroider in different ways with the hope that you, too, can find the method that best expresses you.
Are you embroidering anything right now? I look forward to seeing the beautiful and interesting projects you are stitching!
