writer and founder


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

Beautiful Embroidery Website you Won’t Want to Miss!


Amazon Books

Guess who has published a new embroidery website? Read on, and I’ll tell you….

Trish Burr has published a website – but it’s not just “any” website. It’s really pretty!

Trish Burr's Long and Short Stitch Embroidery Website

The site promises a free project, too – so that’s something to keep an eye on while it’s being developed.

What’s really nice is Trish’s gallery. You can see thumbnails of her work and click on them for larger versions. The larger versions are wonderful – you can see the individual stitches, which is great for developing an understanding of stitch direction and color combinations.

Trish Burr's Long and Short Stitch Embroidery Website

If you want to know a little bit more about Trish, you can read the article I posted on her and her book publishing adventures. The article is in two parts: Trish Burr, part 1, and Trish Burr, part 2. You’ll see some of her works in the articles, too, but you can see them Even Better on her website!

Trish is a master at the whole long-and-short stitch / thread painting technique. Her works are featured in Country Bumpkin’s Inspirations Magazine, and she’s published four books, three of which are on long and short stitch techniques. If you’re interested in this form of embroidery, but have perhaps been intimidated by its look of complexity, you may just be inspired enough by looking at Trish’s work to plunge on in!

While you’re browsing about, then, do check out Trish Burr online – you’re bound to be impressed!

  1. Mary, I’m in awe of those people who can do such beautiful “thread painting”. I struggle with basic satin stitch most time, LOL. It takes an infinite amount of patience and precision to do this type of work. I think Japanese embroidery is the only other technique that comes close to this in beauty.
    Thanks for the link

  2. Thank you for the link Mary. You are right, the site itself is beautiful and Trish’s work if a feast for the eyes.


  3. Thank you for sharing this sight. I did purchase one of Trish Burr’s books after reading one of your posts and I really like it. so thank you for those posts also. I’m kinda new to this type of embroidery so it added alot to my education.

    1. Hi, Thanks for letting me know – she changed the URL for her site home page without setting up a redirect, so that’s why you got the page not found message. I’ve updated the link. – MC
