This section will give you information of the various terms and tools you can associate with hand embroidery. I have tried to keep it as simple as possible without sophisticating with too much details.

Each page could be updated with more details and information in the future.

    Hi, i recently found your wonderful site and have started embroidery again after 45 years! Its been great practising some of your stitches as you explain the, so well, thanks.
    Just one thing. What do you use to draw a design on the cloth? I bought a pen that vanishes after a while which is brilliant for machine sewing but no good for embroidery. I would like to draw some simple designs myself, rather than copying, so what would I use?
