Where to find hand embroidery patterns, kits and tutorials. Hand embroidery is a fun craft that you can take with you!

I was trying to think of crafts that I could share with you that can easily be done at home. Whether you have been doing hand embroidery for years or are a brand new beginner, I think you’ll find these resources useful.

Hand embroidery really is one of those hand crafts that I believe just about anyone can learn. It’s kind of like learning to color inside the lines. I’m not trying to minimize the skills of those people who produce amazing embroidered pieces, but I am trying to encourage you to give hand embroidery a try.

What You’ll Need for Hand Embroidery

You really just need fabric to be embroidered, a needle and embroidery thread to begin hand embroidery. You can even find embroidery kits that contain everything you need to complete the embroidery project.

But, if you’d like to purchase supplies to get started, here are my recommendations:
