February is National Embroidery Month! We love any excuse to stitch something cute together, and this is the perfect time. Whether you like Redwork, improvisational embroidery, or are a beginning needle pointer, you'll love these kits, books, and digital downloads.
For the Beginners
Everybody has to start somewhere. Whether you buy a book or a kit, something with good instructions and detailed charts is essential in your journey to becoming an expert embroiderer. This book is perfect for that. With expert instructions, tips, tricks, and photos, you'll be stitching up your own masterpieces before you know it!
For the Traditional With A Twist
Typically, a basic embroidery project would have an opaque fabric and have a border around the hoop. This kit is anything but typical. Capture the ephemeral beauty of butterflies in their natural habitat with this gorgeous mini maker. It has everything you need to take the next step with your skills and create a show-off-worthy piece of crafted art.
For the Home Decorator
There are so many ways to use embroidery techniques and materials. You can go simple, eclectic, modern, or any style you can think of. This book teaches you how to rethink embroidery right down to the hoop. You'll have all the instruction you need to transform embroidery projects into home accents and gifts that no one will know you made yourself!
For the Quilter
Even if embroidery isn't your main craft, this month is the perfect excuse to take it up. Try incorporating it into your other favorite craft. The Big Book of Crazy Quilt Stitches is perfect for quilters who are looking to further embellish their pieces. Embroidery will add extra texture and dimension to any quilted project, making it even more impressive.
For the Purist
Spring is coming, and what better way to celebrate than with a traditional embroidery project like this one! Whether you're a purist or just looking to practice your basic stitches, this project will help you become a better stitcher. It's like bringing a little piece of the garden into your home all year round! And the best part is it was designed to be made in just a weekend.
