There are so many types of embroidery, hundreds of stitches available to use in any project. Yet, I know that I tend to find a couple of stitches that I like to work with and use almost exclusively.
Even though I don’t stray from my tried and true stitches, it is fun to look around at other options. I stumbled across a resource on the Victoria & Albert Museum website. Their guide on embroidery stitches is a visual feast. Examples of the many stitches available include an explanation but also photographs taken from items in their collection. Gorgeous!
