Getting Started

Grantham1.jpgWelcome to stitching! In this section you will find information on stitches, threads, fabrics, needles and more.

We are delighted that DMC Creative World and Kathy Troup, former editor of Stitch Magazine, agreed to provide so much useful information.

We also have videos for you to view that demonstrate a number of stitches and techniques. Please see the headings under Getting Started - Nicola Jarvis demonstrates traditional hand embroidery including stem stitch, crewelwork, silkwork and flame stitch and Kay Dennis shows us some examples of stumpwork
