Last year I spent a few months working on a hand embroidery kit to be sold in Barnes & Noble stores and after checking the site sporadically for the past few weeks, this morning my search yielded results: it’s out!
Titled Sew Cute Embroidery Kit, the booklet contains instructions for 12 designs as well as step-by-step photo instructions on how to do the embroidery stitches. The kit includes needles, thread, a hoop and fabric.
It’s available in-store, as well as online for $13.45 (save 10%), and is suitable for absolute beginner embroiderers right through to experienced stitchers looking for quick and easy projects.
Many thanks to becker&mayer! and in particular my editor, Leah, for including me in what turned out to be an incredibly fun project to work on.
