    Um, could you be any cooler, putting all this up for FREE? I think not. 😀

    Thanx for the stitch instructions. I really appreciate that they are not on video. My PC couldn’t handle that. Can’t wait to try some of these on your patterns. Any suggestions there? Thanx again

    Thank you for being so generous. I recently re-connected to my love of needlework after retiring from teaching. So glad to find your website. What a neat person you are!

    I have never seen anything like this. I am amazed at how many different stitches you have shown. They must look very beautiful when they are in color. I’m kinda nervous about trying to make something, but I’m going to do it anyway! You have illustrated each stitch in such a way that even I can understand, so what the heck, wish me luck!

Since a lot of people don’t have a lot of money for any extras now days . These are really helpful to a lot of people out there . Linda Day I live in Floyds Knobs, In. N I’m retired so have a lot of extra time now . So thank u again.

    love your embroidery lessons. but I am finding out that much of the stitches I was taught as a child are under “needle point or satin stitches”. Is that correct? For instance I do a fly stitch and then do blanket stitch over it to provide some dimension. thanks for being free. It is nice to see the arts continuing even when there are now embroidery machines. What will they do when there is no electric?

    Thanks for a very complete site of embroidery stitches! Using a quilt my great-great grandmother stitched, I am trying to identify her choices, and your site helped immensely! I was especially happy to find the wheat ear stitch!
