First stop is Mary Corbet’s Needle ‘n Thread. You’ll find well-organized, clear videos on over 60 stitches ranging from bands, line, chain, fly, and buttonhole to knots, detached, and filling. It’s a clean site and super easy to navigate!
To fill in the gaps on a few stitches I couldn’t find on Needle ‘n Thread, I did a little extra searching. Find more how-to videos and vote in our most fun-to-do stitch poll after the jump!
Mridula’s School of Embroidery has some nice freestyle demos up on their YouTube channel. Check out the star stitch and fly filling stitch (on a leaf shape) videos. Based in India, the school also offers videos on a ton of beautiful Indian embroidery techniques.
YouTube user gaa53871 of Honey Bee’s Bliss shared a nice little video on getting a good straight stitch started with ribbon.
Happy stitches everyone! Don’t forget to vote in the poll below!
