Sign up for Embroidery 101 here. You’ll learn how to get started, the tools and supplies you’ll need, the four most basic stitches, how to transfer your pattern and how to display your work.

If you already know the basics – sign up for Embroidery 201. It’s also free! You’ll learn how to stitch on specialty fabrics like felt and stretchy T-shirts. Plus you’ll learn lots and lots and LOTS more stitches – all my favorites!

Cross stitch is really easy. It truly is just a little stitched X. But there are a couple of tricks that will make your stitching look good – especially if you’re using cross stitches to fill an area – and that’s what I show you in this video.

Happy stitching!
