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

Do You Use a Visual Journal?


Amazon Books

Just a quick post for all those who use visual journals. If you’d like a great tutorial on bookbinding (making your own journal by hand, for example), you might want to check out Scriptorium’s free Little Guide to Bookbinding (PDF). It’s quite nice, and worth looking at. Besides the obvious applications to making your own visual journal for your needlework related doodlings, I was thinking it’s a nice method if you wanted to make a book and cover it with a nice piece of embroidery. Anyway, check out the link and overview on the Scriptorium website, if you’re interested!

    I usually just wing it when I’m putting together a book. It’s nice to see this guide.
    Thanks so much for bringing it to our attention!
