New to embroidery help

I have not done embroidery before, where do I start?

Where can I find the materials I need for each project?

You can find recommended online stockists for all the materials you need under SUPPLIES.

Can I purchase a pattern as a kit with materials included?

Some, but not all of the patterns are available to purchase as kits in my Embroidery store. The patterns on this site include the full range of all my designs, current, past and discontinued, which will not all be available as kits.

How do I trace the outline from the pattern onto the fabric?

  • Print out a copy of the page with the tracing outline on.
  • The tracing outline is actual size.
  • Trace the outline onto your fabric using either a light source or transfer pen.
  • You can watch a video on how to do this.
  • If you prefer you can purchase an iron on transfer.
