Here on Needle ‘n Thread, I like to index each step-by-step project in one place so that it’s easy for you to find it and follow the various articles in the series. You can find my indexed step-by-step projects under Tips and Techniques, at the top of the page, under Hand Embroidery Lessons & Step-by-Step Projects.
The purpose of today’s short article, then, is to create an index for the Hungarian Redwork Runner project. Here, I’ll list in chronological order every article that has to do with this project, from development through finishing.
You’re welcome to follow along on this project, to stitch along with me, or to save it for later. All the information on it will be here, whenever you need it.
What Can You Learn from This Project?
Even if you don’t plan to follow along by actually stitching the Hungarian Redwork Runner, I hope you will find the articles useful and informative.
I’ll definitely be including tips along the way that you can apply to your own embroidery projects.
And of course, mistakes are part of just about every embroidery journey. Mistakes are a great way to learn, so I have no problems at all in showing you my mistakes (I make plenty of ’em!) and working out how to fix them…. or at least, how to minimize their impact!
