Basic embroidery stitches are the building blocks of all decorative needlework. Some are easier to work than others, but by following the instructions, step-by-step photos and videos you will soon get the hang of them.
You can try out the stitches on scrap material, but why not do what children in past generations did and create your very own sampler? This can then live in your needlework basket or frame it and hang it on the wall. Don't forget to include your name and the date you completed your project.
I have grouped the embroidery stitches to make it easier for you to find what you are looking for, but do check out all the links as you might find just what you need in a different section.
If you find a stitch on the site that isn't listed here please let me know and I will direct you to a free blackwork chart to say thank you.
