You’ll find a lot of hand embroidery information in my new online class, Fused Art Quilts: Tiny Homes. In this class, you’ll learn how to create improvisational fused art quilts and how to embellish them as well. I show you how to make various embroidery stitches and discuss thread weights and needle sizes too.
Why talk about needle sizes? It’s important to match your thread with the correct size of hand embroidery needle. Needles that are too small for the thread are difficult to thread and difficult to pull through the fabric. If a needle is too large for the thread, the smaller thread will not be able to fill in the giant hole the needle makes. Here’s a simple chart to help you match your hand embroidery needle to the correct size of pearl cotton thread.
So match your needle with your thread and happily stitch away. Here’s a simple chart to help you match your hand embroidery needle to the correct size of pearl cotton thread.
