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

Reader’s Embroidery: Monogrammed Towels


Amazon Books

I love seeing what readers are doing out there in the embroidery world. And it especially thrills me when they use a pattern or stitch suggestion from Needle ‘n Thread, and send pictures! Here are some monogrammed towels from a reader – you’ll recognize one of the monograms.

These little towels were hand embroidered by Queenie. The first set is from the flowered monogram I posted earlier this year.

This second set, though, is my favorite! I love the W – I think it’s so pretty, and the stitching is so neat. And I love the little locked hearts with the Mr. and Mrs. on them! Very nice! Those would be a great set to give as a wedding present!

Queenie also sent this picture of another project:

Funny, eh?

Thanks heaps for sending the photos along, Queenie! It looks as if you’re having fun with embroidery!

If you’ve made something recently that you’d like to share with readers, do send along a photo! Just drop me a line, and I’ll send you my e-mail address. I’d love to see what you’re up to with your needle ‘n thread!

  1. Lovely work!
    I double appreciate it because I’m doing several embroidered towels with different monograms for a friend and I have to join two letters!!! Sometimes it is difficult…
