  1. I have done a little hand embroidery and enjoy it. I still find it a little cumbersome, but I know that with more practice it will get easier.

  2. I haven’t used hand embroidery very much, but would love to get more involved with it! I can see myself loving it and enjoying the calming effects of stitching beautiful things! I have hand-stitched names and initials along with small hearts or flowers to projects I’ve made just to personalize them, but the thoughts of taking it further really inspires me!

  3. I’ve been taking an online Crazy Quilt class, and am learning hand embroidery in the process. I’m finding that it’s just as soothing as hand piecing.

  4. I haven’t embroidered anything in several years. I have an eight year old granddaughter to instill the love of sewing. Maybe I can start that this summer.

  5. I did a lot of hand embroidery as a teen, decorating clothes and bags. I have been thinking often that I would like to revisit embroidery and teach my young sons to start sewing by hand.

  6. I’ve done loads of embroidery, from cross stitch to wool embroidery to redwork. They are great take along projects on vacations. I was taught by my mom.

  7. I have done lost of cross stitch, some ribbon embroidery, and some regular embroidery and crewel embroidery inspired by Erica Wilson. I’ve also done redwork embroidery.

  8. I love to do hand embroidery. I have two quilt tops that I am embroidering now. I think quilts are much prettier with embroidery on them. Thanks for the giveaway.

  9. I do a lot of hand embroidery and crazy quilting. You can never have too many patterns or too much thread! I plan to teach a friend’s da.ughter this summer. She’s almost four and she loves to get out her hoop and needle and thread when we do, so I think it’s time she gets to do real designs

  10. I didn’t realize embroidery was so popular again! I did it when I was a teenager, and younger. It’s been quite a while, lol. I’m glad it’s back, though. You’ve shared some great designs. Thanks.

  11. Have done some hand embroidery…been awhile…but am brushing up again..due to my Grangirlie wanting to learn! 🙂 We will work together..and I would love to win your Give-a-way! Thanks for the chance! 🙂

  12. A hand embroidery sampler was the first thing I ever learned to sew and I still love hand embroidery to this day. I always found it to be great to take whatever project I was working along with me to work on when I was waiting somewhere.

  13. I love hand embroidery, although I usually do the preprinted designs. I love making tiny stitches, which really helps when you are going around corners.
