I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

Embroider This! – What a Good Idea!


Amazon Books

Ok, if you’re like me, you like to do the embroidery – the stitching is great! – but when it comes to the finish work….. rrrrrgh. And so, you might end up with a few of those “UFOs” (Un-Finished Objects) floating around in closets, taking up storage space… nagging you. Yep, I know the feeling! The other day, I decided to take the plunge and order some stuff from a merchant that I’ve seen online, but just never paid attention to…

Embroider This! specializes in finished items, ready to personalize with your own embroidery. I imagine they’re primarily servicing machine-embroidery customers, which is quite alright – because if you can machine-embroider something, I’m pretty sure you can hand-embroider it, too.

So what did I get that I really liked? I bought three pre-made linen guest towels that would make great wedding gifts once personalized; some linen hankies, which can be used as hankies if you want, or as “doilies” or whatnot; a really nice drawn-thread apron, 100% cotton, which would be darling with a little embroidered accent on it; and some flour sack towels (another great gift idea). I can’t wait to stitch up a couple of the items. They’ll make great gifts!

The shipping is fast, and the goods I bought were all of a decent quality. What an easy way to get some of those Christmas presents done!

Check out Embroider This! and start stitching!
