Hand Embroidery


If there is anyone who knows of a website that sells hand embroidery patterns and or kits i would be forever grateful.

I have spend numerous days endlessly looking for such a website to no avail. I usually take a cross stitch pattern and make it hand embroidery. But i would prefer not to.

Thank you for any and all help. Helen

In the marketplace this kind of work has become more commonly called Surface Embroidery, not sure why. Try the Leisure Arts company, I have older patterns of theirs. Try searching 'Aunt Martha' and you will find many transfer designs to use on anything you like.
