Embroidery has a lengthy history, as adornment, embellishment and hobby for nimble hands. This blog showcases the embroidery styles that I have mastered, as well as the styles that I am still learning. From medieval to modern, European to American, simple to complex, read all about my journeys with string.

Freebies for the Kiddos!
A while back, I drew up some embroidery cards for children; the kind that you take a plastic needle and a piece of yarn and they follow the holes in the cards. I remember my mom buying me some sewing cards like that, when I was 2 or 3 years old. We traveled regularly with a drum and bugle corp at that time, and the cards were a good activity in the car, during long rides. With that in mind, I came up with these cards, to teach children the mechanics of the 5 more basic stitches-running, stem, split, chain, and Bayeux stitch (because I love it ;) )
FEEL FREE TO PRINT OR SHARE THESE. I print them in card stock, then laminate them and punch the holes. I do not mind them being shared, because they are meant as a fun teaching tool and I love instilling these skills in our youth.
