Embroidery is the beautiful and versatile craft of decorating fabric or other materials with a few basic supplies. Anyone can learn how to embroider with a little time, effort, and patience. It is a great skill to have because it can help to improve your focus and hand-eye coordination. It is a fabulous way to add a personal touch to a project. A few of the main categories are free or surface embroidery, counted-thread, and needlepoint. In free or surface, such as Crewel, you apply designs without regard to the weave of the underlying fabric. Create counted-thread patterns by making stitches over a select number of threads in the underlying fabric. This method, called Cross-Stitch, is typically on an even-weave fabric like canvas.
