Embroidery 101: Resources
Since I started working in the tech industry, I have a renewed appreciation for analog hobbies and handcrafted things. I really value time away from my laptop screen. I love sewing and now that knitting season is done, I decided to try my hand at some of the things I’ve saved on my Pinterest craft board.
I found an embroidery template in an old sewing basket of my grandmother’s and decided to get going. You can find ones similar to this here and here. These are a good way to get started because the pattern is printed for you and visible on both sides of the fabric.
If you live in Toronto and want to learn some embroidery basics, try taking a class with Gal Who Sews and Basic Stitch. I took their Female Figures & Florals class at the Drake Hotel this winter and it was a great way to get going!
