  • Hand Embroidery Made Modern with Simple Hand Sewing Stitches

    Hand embroidery often has an old-fashioned connotation, especially if you grew up following hand embroidery patterns for cross stitch or hand stitching Bo Peep-like ladies on pillow cases. I love to incorporate vintage hand embroidery pieces in my fiber art, especially prayer flags. They are charming...

  • Sewing Beads on Fabric: Write with the Beaded Backstitch

    Recently I spied a Facebook post by Candy Glendening in which she shared a picture of a fabric zipper-bag she made to hold her son's charging devices while he travels. Of course, Candy not only made the bag from her own dyed fabric but stitched her son's name on it, to boot. No one else is going...

Susan Brubaker Knapp turned a thrift store jacket into art-on-the...

  • Embroidering fabric

    Hello, My first post! I've stamped some fabric (fat quarter) and want to embroider on it now to make it more complex as it evolves into a finished piece. I'm not sure where it's going but should I back it with flannel or other thin backing before I start the hand work or should I do handwor...

  • A Good Bood

    When reading a book, a person actually sees the words in their mind and feels the emotions these words evoke. This is me reading "A Good Book" running through a myriad of emotions as the story progresses from "Once upon a time" to "and they lived happily ever after."

  • Along Our River

    This 18"x23" quilt was made for our quilt guild challenge, Along the River. The river needed to enter on the left side and exit on the right side of the quilt so I chose the Hudson River as it meanders through our area of the lower Adirondacks. I enlarged a map of the river and used it to arrange...

    "Angels of Darkness, Angels of Light" - Ó 2005, ( 30”W x 28.5”T), is based on a vision that I had where I was visited by angels of two kinds, those of dark and those of light. For me, the experience was very profound, as it impressed upon me that there are lessons to be learned...

  • Re: UK members..is there a source book for City and Guilds course in embroidery??

    Hi Lorraine, I don't think that there is a C&G coursebook available as normally the coursework is down to the Lecturers! What I'd recommend you do is have a look at the Embroiderers' Guild here in the UK. Find yourself a local Branch to join and have fun learning without the expense of...

  • Re: free motion frustration!

    Hi Zoldesign, you need to place your fabric in a hoop and make sure it is very taught. This will avoid the fabric coming up and down with the needle. I assume you are using a single thickness of fabric? The only time you need not place fabric in a hoop to free motion, is when you are stiching through...
