How to Embroider Almost Everything

My book is out now!

Woo hoo!

I can’t wait to see what you make with all these motifs. There are over 500!

The title is How to Embroider Almost Everything and I took that really seriously. I tried to draw ALL KINDS of different things. Yes – there are your normal embroidery subjects – flowers and trees and cute animals. But there are also pages and pages of other things – like laundry hanging on a line, household tools, colorful cocktails, and more. It was so much fun!

Want to see a peek inside the book? I recorded a video of me looking through my author copy for the first time! You can watch it here.

Want to order it? Here are a bunch of links for places to buy.

If you already bought a copy – thank you so much! I hope you love it!

If you do, please leave a review. You can do that by clicking on any of those purchasing links. Online reviews help so much – especially on Amazon. Like Facebook, they keep the details of their algorithm secret – but they do tell authors that more reviews lead to higher rank in search results. Posting an Amazon review (even a super short one) is a really, really nice thing to do for books you like. 🙂

Happy stitching! I can’t wait to see what you make! We’ll have a special category in our photo contest next month – so be sure to snap a photo and be ready to share!
