About 

Embroidery stitching has been around for decades, but it’s making a strong comeback with the desire for more personal and detailed items made by hand. And with new twists on an old craft, this isn’t your grandmother’s embroidery anymore!
 
Besides all the creative stitches you will learn and fun projects you can make, embroidery stitching has many other benefits.
 
It is an inexpensive craft, in fact you may already have most of the equipment needed tucked away in a drawer or cupboard. It is also a very quiet and portable hobby. From most anywhere you are - in a waiting room, on the subway, or at home - you can easily work on one of your projects.
 
Did you also know that hand sewing has been shown to lower your heart rate and blood pressure? Since it requires both mind and body working together, it’s easy to lose yourself in the work and forget about the stresses of your day. Other health benefits include improved coordination and mental acuity.
 
Like many other craft activities, embroidery sewing increases dopamine in your brain, which will make you feel more positive.
 

So, c’mon and get happy - learn how to creatively sew, and make others happy with your beautifully made handcrafted gifts.
