Anyone know of any easy embroidery books so I can learn a few stitches? Or maybe I should take a class. Wonder where they do those sorts of classes? Now to find the time!
I recommend these two sites for basic embroidery info:
Jenny Hart has some really nice embroidery patterns available in two kits (iron ons that can be reused) some cutesy, some kitchy. They are available at amazon.com or at most bookstores.
most basic stitches can be found online. lazy daisy and the suchlike :)
I really like the book "Decorative Embroidery" published by Reader's Digest. It has some patterns but also does a really good job explaining all the stitches.
I will check out the links and books mentioned. oh boy!
I like the sewing because I can do it while I watch TV. :)
I just sounded like an infomercial.
You can also check out a local notions store, like JoAnn Fabrics, the ones that have a the stitching posts in them where they sell machines. Sometimes they have craft calendars and you can take embrodiery classes there pretty cheaply! Good luck! I love sewing on fabric, paper, and now knitting. Super nice to do while watching TV too!!
