Stitch Your Way Through National Embroidery Month With 29 Hand Embroidery Tutorials



29 hand embroidery stitch tutorials for national embroidery month

Over the past few years I've hosted a variety of embroidery stitch alongs. I love these because they're a fun way to connect with fellow stitchers and try new embroidery stitches. I had hoped to do that again this year, for National Embroidery month (aka now) but time got away from me. So instead, I've rounded up all (I think...) of my hand embroidery tutorials for you to try (or as many as you'd like!)


When I create an embroidery stitch along, I love to use a wide variety of hand embroidery stitches. Thanks to my love of using a bunch of embroidery stitches, this round up is robust! Like 29 stitches robust! That's one for every day of February, because lucky you, it's a leap year.


I hope you find these embroidery tutorials helpful and learn new tips and tricks to add to your stitching repertoire. Let me know which stitches are new to you and which ones are your favorites.
