Embroidery boosts your health

A craft like embroidery can be crucial for people's well-being. It is both relaxing and calming - many experience it as a break from everyday life. When we embroider, we immerse ourselves and shut out the surroundings, creating space for relaxation. In this way, embroidery strengthens our mental health. Conversely, embroidery can also be done with others, turning it into a social activity that fosters a sense of community.


How do I start embroidering?

Embroidery may seem complicated and difficult, but it doesn't have to be. With our embroidery kit for beginners - Start DIY Embroidery Kit - you are sure to get off to a good start. Here, you get all the tools you need - embroidery thread, embroidery hoop, and embroidery needle. Additionally, you receive thorough guidance and a video guide that you can easily follow to learn the basic techniques. When you're done, you'll have a beautiful tote bag with an embroidered pattern.


If you dream of doing other embroidery projects afterward, you can also try our other embroidery kits. With them, you can create wall hangings, napkins, wallets, and much more. But if you want to start embroidering on your own, we have gathered some steps to help you:


  1. Buy the basic equipment: Invest in a good embroidery hoop, embroidery thread in different colours, a needle, and a pattern that suits your embroidery project.


  1. Choose the right pattern: Start with a simple pattern if you are a beginner. Gradually challenge yourself with more complex designs.


  1. Practice basic stitches: Learn basic stitches like running stitch, cross stitch, and stem stitch. These form the foundation for many embroidery projects.



What fabric can I embroider on?

In principle, you can embroider on almost all types of fabric. However, some fabrics are more suitable for embroidery than others. Cotton and linen are popular choices as they are durable and allow the needle to glide easily through the fabric. Silk and wool can also be used for more delicate projects. It is important to choose a fabric that suits your project and allows for precise and even stitches.


What do I need for embroidery?

Having the right equipment is crucial for a successful embroidery project. Here are the basic tools that are good to have in your crafting drawer:


  • Embroidery hoop: Holds the fabric taut and stretched during embroidery, making it easier to work.
  • Embroidery thread: Colourful threads in various thicknesses used to create patterns.
  • Needle: An embroidery needle with a sharp point that makes it easy to pierce through the fabric.
  • Pattern: A printed or drawn design that you follow during embroidery.
  • Marker or pencil: Used to transfer the pattern onto the fabric.


You can find all the equipment on our website, and if you're looking to learn specific techniques, you can always visit our technique page. Read more about our embroidery techniques right here.


What can I embroider?

The possibilities are almost endless when it comes to embroidery - and that's why inspiration is always welcome. Here are some ideas you can consider:


  • Embroidery on clothing: Personalize your clothing with beautiful embroideries. This can range from simple monograms to more complex designs. Try, for example, Japanese embroidery on a denim jacket.


  • Embroidery on cushions: Create unique cushions by embroidering patterns or quotes on fabric and sewing them into cushion covers. Embroider, for example, a cushion with a butterfly motif.

What stitches do you use for embroidery?

  • French knot: A decorative knot used to create small, tight points.
  • Satin stitch: Simple embroidery technique where stitches lie close to each other, creating volume. Good for embroidering letters.
  • Backstitch: Perfect for embroidering lines and small details - also called running stitch.
  • Outline stitch: This stitch creates a bold line, which is good for edges or around a motif.
