CHECK THIS PAGE EVERY NOW AND THEN AS I WILL ADD MORE AS I REDISCOVER OLD FAVORITES  (Revised 9.18.12)

  • Arts and Designs Stitch Glossary:  I especially like the little window that pops up when you click for an enlargement of the stitch diagram.  The diagram is very clear and you can print it.
  • KnitHeaven: Vintage instructions for embroidery as well as other needle crafts
  • Carol H. Lake While predominantly focused on canvas, counted work is counted work!
  • Henry Art Gallery“The Embroidery Stitch Identification Guide presents a standardized nomenclature and classification system for embroidery stitches based on seven structural and three usage categories.” (quote from purpose section of site.)  A scientific or anthropological look at this field.

  • Nordic Needle Save These Stitches  Focused on stitches one might find in Hardanger embroidery rather than basic embroidery technique
