Basic Embroidery Stitches


The classification of embroidery stitches is varied and followed in different ways by different embroiderers . I have mentioned about few stitches in this post that are used more commonly in embroidery projects and which a beginner in embroidery should know of.

Listed below are the embroidery stitches used most commonly and easy to learn & use by beginners.

I shall be working on embroidery patterns using these basic stitches.
Stay tuned for patterns and motifs using various embroidery stitches.
I would  be using each embroidery stitch for a particular type of embroidery that the stitch is intended to be used for or looks good in.

So lets start our journey......
