My gift for you – Simple Stitchery: A Little Embroidery Primer

My new book is done!  I’m so excited!

Inside you’ll discover some help and advice on topics ranging from the right thread and fabric, hooping up, caring for your work and transferring your design.  You’ll also discover a stitch glossary with diagrams, pictures from Jacqui, and clear instructions to help you master some of the most commonly found embroidery stitches.  

Please share it as much as you want – that’s if you like it enough to want to share – I do hope you will.  I’m also planning on making it available as a “proper” book through Amazon – sadly that can’t be free – and I’ll let you know when it’s available.

You can read it online above – or just CLICK HERE to download the pdf file- it’s absolutely free with love from me to you.


Thank you for sharing. This is a wonderful and beautiful book. I will enjoy it.


Thank you for such a wonderful book. You really did a lovely job. I received it with your newsletter and can’t thank you enough. I tend to use the same old stitches (back/stem/chain/daisy) so now I have a handy guide when I feel like adding a little more depth to my stitchery.


Thank you for the perfectly charming Embroidery Primer. It’s such a kind and generous gift. I’m delighted that you’re happy to have me share with like minded friends!

Thank you so much Helen, for this lovely book. I’ve downloaded it onto my Ipad, as I have with all your other books, the magazine and your beautiful designs. I just love looking through them, deciding what to make. Your website really brightens up my day!
