Hand work embroidery

Embroidery is such an important part of our lives that we may not even notice it. However, when a shirt or skirt has fancy seams, a baseball cap has a sewn logo, or when a shirt is monogrammed, embroidery is the cause. It is true that this kind of embroidery is done by machine, but beautiful stitching is also possible thanks to the centuries-old art of hand embroidery.

Hand embroidery of some kind is thousands of years old. It was used in ancient Egypt to decorate the hemlines of royal robes, in tapestries in the Middle Ages, and in ladies’ samplers during colonial and Victorian periods. It goes on like an art form nowadays. Many people are familiar with the counted cross stitch – a cousin with hand embroidery – and it seems that the counted cross stitch has almost overshadowed. However, there are many people who still like to work with hand embroidery, and it decorates wall hangings, pillowcases, duvets, and table runners.

Hand embroidery differs from cross stitch counted in that it uses many different kinds of stitches to reach texture and interest. while the cross stitch counted uses only one stitch and rests on color and shading for texture. The cross stitch counted is worked from a graphic, in which the printed drawing is rendered as a series of XS and the artist embroiders the drawing accordingly. Embroidery patterns can be stamped or drawn on the material, or they can be handcrafted. Embroidery uses embroidery silk and an embroidery needle, which has a slightly larger eye but is yet pointed.

Embroidery has modest roots, which is excellent news for beginners; it is an easily accessible trade to start with. Supplies are cheap and technologies vary from basic to advanced. You might even know some of the embroidery stitches—many of us learn to sew from a parent or grandparent, as the skills of embroidery are traditionally passed on from generation to generation.

The embroidery is presented with a great variety of yarn or yarn colors which also includes other interesting colors like gold, silver, and bronze.

A typical feature of embroidery is that the essential techniques or stitches of the initial work are warp stitch, buttonhole or cover stitch, running stitch, satin stitch, and cross stitch. But today, these are only basic techniques of hand embroidery.

In the more primitive phase, Machine broderie arose during the Industrial Revolution to imitate the techniques of hand embroidery. Handwork was elegant and elegant, especially when using chain stitches, but machine work, especially using multiple threads to make satin stitches and hemming stitches, was not.

Categories Of Embroidery

It is possible to categorize embroidery based on whether the design is applied over the fabric or through the groundwork fabric and in relation to the stitch placement through the fabric.

In regular embroidery, the patterns are used without taking into account the weaving of the original fabric.

Counted yarn embroidery designs are made by stitching on a predetermined number of yarns in the original fabric. Counted thread embroidery is an easy job that can be applied in an original uniform weave fabric such as embroidery cloth, Aida fabric an open weave fabric, or specially woven cotton and linen fabrics, even though non-woven linen may also be used.

Embroidery threads

There are many yarns to choose from that you can use for hand embroidery.

Stranded Cotton – those are the popular six-row skeins. Stranded cotton is ideal for cross-stitching on different tissues. Stranded cotton can also be used for freestyle embroidery, canvas work, and other embroidery shapes. You can divide the 6 strands in as much as you like for a sound blanket on your fabric.
Soft Cotton – You can also make soft cotton that cannot be cut. It is used for work on canvas or for bold embroidery patterns when sewn onto a heavy medium fabric.
Cotton Bead – Cotton Bead is made in different weights for embroidery – the most popular being is the thickest and can be used for Hardanger embroidery, cross stitch, or freestyle embroidery.
Wool – Yarn may be thicker or thinner. Tapestry wool is used for fabric work to cover the fabric uniformly and crewel wool can be used as surface yarn for crewel work and Jacobean embroidery.
Other threads for hand embroidery include silk threads and specialized threads for techniques like silversmithing.
