Embroidery

Images of painstaking hours of work hunched over a scrap of fabric? Well, think again! This is certainly a hobby to produce impressive results, but it is much more accessible and fun than you might have thought. It can be whatever you want it to be, and with a few basic techniques under your belt, you can produce a finished piece to be proud of in a short time.

The point is, embroidery is a hobby that is an art form, and in that sense, every bit as individual as you are.

Let's have a look at some of the ways that embroidery can be defined. One method is according to way the stitches are placed on the fabric. If they are not related to the weave of the fabric, such as crewel or Chinese embroidery, it is known as free embroidery. However, if the stitches are formed over a set number of threads in the base fabric, such as needlepoint or cross stitch, this is known as counted thread embroidery.

Classifying Embroidery

Another way of classifying embroidery is whether the stitches are on or through the fabric. Fancy stitching using laid thread is called surface embroidery, and this broad definition covers much in the free embroidery class, as well as some counted thread embroidery. Then there is canvas work in which the stitches are sewn right through a woven foundation cloth, totally obscuring the base. The printed designs checkout, Caving giving guidelines and colours have a look at, Model Railways - Railroading fall into this category, and any stitches can be used. Some forms of hand embroidery are also classed this way.
