Thank you so much. February 17, 2015 cherie Glad to be of help! December 3, 2014 Penni Johnson 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! December 1, 2014 Jan Leek 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 November 8, 2014 cherie 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! July 20, 2014 sherrie 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? July 18, 2014 cherie Thankfully, floss is still affordable. Enjoy your retirement and have fun stitching!

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! August 2, 2012 cherie Thanks for your kind words!

So glad to find your website. What a neat person you are! February 4, 2012 Verna Thanx for the stitch instructions. I really appreciate that they are not on video. My PC couldn’t handle that.
