Images of painstaking hours of work hunched over a scrap of fabric? Well, think again!

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 tradition of embroidery is old, at least 2000 years, but it is a universally found handicraft. Consequently it has many different forms and styles, being always open to new interpretations.

It can be as traditional or modern as you like, by hand or using a machine. I have seen some amazing machine stitched embroidery patches coming out of Nepal, scenes of mountains and psychedelia. 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 consider, Family Tree Maker Online giving guidelines and colours consider, Cape Malay recipe for mutton curry fall into this category, and any stitches can be used. Some forms of hand embroidery are also classed this way.
