  1. Thanks for a very complete site of embroidery stitches! Using a quilt my great-great grandmother stitched, I am trying to identify her choices, and your site helped immensely! I was especially happy to find the wheat ear stitch!

  2. I have been trying to find out how to make a stitch that they used when I was a child on quilt blocks or to finish a blanket it looked like a chicken foot.. thank you in advance for your help , Jan

  3. Yes, the satin stitches are filling stitches in hand embroidery and I suppose cross stitch is considered needlepoint even though it’s also an embroidery stitch. When the power goes out we still have our needles and thread!

  4. love your embroidery lessons. but I am finding out that much of the stitches I was taught as a child are under “needle point or satin stitches”. Is that correct? For instance I do a fly stitch and then do blanket stitch over it to provide some dimension. thanks for being free. It is nice to see the arts continuing even when there are now embroidery machines. What will they do when there is no electric?

  5. Stumbled on this by mistake , but I love it . Have been embroidering since I was 6 , in a foster home. N some of these patterns bring back a lot of memories. Thank u for doing these for free. Since a lot of people don’t have a lot of money for any extras now days . These are really helpful to a lot of people out there . Linda Day I live in Floyds Knobs, In. N I’m retired so have a lot of extra time now . So thank u again.

  6. i am restarting my love for embroidery after 3 decades. this is excellent work. all our wishes for u for ur generousity

  7. I have never seen anything like this. I am amazed at how many different stitches you have shown. They must look very beautiful when they are in color. I’m kinda nervous about trying to make something, but I’m going to do it anyway! You have illustrated each stitch in such a way that even I can understand, so what the heck, wish me luck!

  8. Thank you for being so generous. I recently re-connected to my love of needlework after retiring from teaching. So glad to find your website. What a neat person you are!

  9. Thanx for the stitch instructions. I really appreciate that they are not on video. My PC couldn’t handle that. Can’t wait to try some of these on your patterns. Any suggestions there? Thanx again
