Embroidery Books

Updated on October 9, 2014

Hand Embroidery Projects

Needlework can be intricate and delicate or big and bold. Both are lovely! Find great hand embroidery projects in one of the many embroidery books available.

I don't do a lot of embroidery, but I have done some crewel and simple embroidery before.

And I love perusing these books to get ideas. I rarely use the entire pattern but choose bits from them to accent a sewing or craft project I'm working on.

These are best selling embroidery books that are highly recommended by actual users. Find just the right one for your next project!

An embroidery book and a few of these supplies make a great gift for any crafter!

Instead of giving some "thing" that sits around the house, a crafting gift provides hours of fun for the recipient.
