Itch To Stitch Series: Embroidery Tutorials

 

I love to stitch and I love to share my passion for historic textiles. In these embroidery videos made in collaboration with the textile collection of the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle, I was able to do both. Here you will find instructions for basic embroidery stitches with digital animation to illustrate the steps and historic examples of the stitches in use. Best of all there are links to the Henry’s Embroidery Stitch Guide and their extensive textile collection. Watch all five videos for the full back story on the 19th century sampler that was my source of inspiration.
