Frequently Asked Questions about Hand Embroidery (FAQ)



What is hand embroidery?


Put simply, hand embroidery is the art of embellishing fabric with decorative stitches created with needle and thread (sometimes referred to as embroidery floss). Hand embroidery can be used to embellish clothing, accessories, household decor, and other decorative items. No matter your skill level, learning how to do hand embroidery is a skill that can be learned easily with just a little bit of practice. Hand embroidery is a great way to add personalization to virtually any item, elevating it into a work of art!


What supplies do you need for hand embroidery?


Embroidery floss, a needle, and cloth - that’s all of the hand embroidery supplies you need to get started! There are many other helpful embroidery tools that make the process easier and more enjoyable, but you won’t get far without these three essential embroidery tools.


How do you start hand embroidery?


You’re in the right place! Check out our Embroidery 101 video series for free tutorials on hand embroidery for beginners. They’re also great for brushing up on your hand embroidery stitches and other techniques if it’s been a while since you’ve stitched!


Is hand embroidering hard?


Like any new skill, learning how to embroider by hand may seem difficult at first. But the more you stitch, the easier it will become! Plus, we have plenty of free embroidery tutorials to help you every step of the way. You will be amazed at how many hand embroidery techniques you can learn! 


What is the best fabric for hand embroidery?


The answer to this question will depend on your own personal preference, but if you are just getting started, we recommend natural woven fabrics such as linen and linen blends.


What is the difference between cross stitch and embroidery?


While both are forms of needlework, cross stitch is a subset of embroidery that uses a specific stitch (an x-shaped stitch known as the cross stitch) to create a pattern or design. By contrast, hand embroidery uses a variety of stitches and techniques to embellish fabric, rather than just one.
