Embroidery has been around for centuries, but this humble craft has had a resurgence in popularity in recent years. Want to try it? Learning the correct stitches is the first step to starting your own hand embroidery. Once you learn the basics, it’ll be easier to follow patterns and create your own hoop art. Dropcloth Samplers is here to help you get started; their 10” x 12” (approximate) cloth comes printed with stitches to complete. They include pictures that show you one way to fill in the design, but you can choose the colors you like.
Learn these stitches (and more) from Rebecca when you take her Stitch a Day Sampler class through CreativeBug!
About Dropcloth Samplers
Rebecca Ringquist is the owner of Dropcloth Samplers and the woman behind the DIY embroidery cloths. She started the operation almost spontaneously, choosing to sell her embroidery sampler design at a craft sale in 2010. The response was great, and it forced her to open her own shop not long after. “Each design comes with no directions,” she says, “in the hopes that you will find your own happenstance color relationships growing as you make it up as you go.”
