Sublime Stitching was founded independently in Austin, Texas in 2001 by Jenny Hart, due to an overabundance of bunny-n-duckie patterns and outdated, overly-difficult instructions for embroidery. After first trying embroidery in the summer of 2000, Hart was unable to find any alternative patterns for stitching (“alternative” meaning: anything other than cutesy teddy bears, duckies, bunnies and scarecrows). Instead of waiting for the craft industry to do something new, she did it herself. Jenny decided to create the company she wished existed: introducing her own designs in non-traditional themes, with new education and new anything for embroidery.

Hart’s vision for updated embroidery has grown from her first line of four design sheets to over fifty themes, including the collaborative Artist Series, and a complete product line that includes quality tools and textiles for embroidery.

Sublime Stitching endeavors to maintain fair-trade relationships both locally and internationally and to collaborate with communities of other independent crafters, artists and locally-owned businesses whenever possible. All for embroidery and embroidery for all!

    My hands are beginners but my heart dreams of becoming a professional sewer! I will work hard at it until my hands meet my heart :)

    Intermediate. I do a bit of everything but I have to improve on the attention to details…

    I’d say intermediate. I’ve made lots of things but still have much to learn.

    Intermediate. I’ve sewn a lot but still need to look up advanced techniques (which is why I love Burdastyle’s tutorials!)

    I suppose I’m intermediate, since I can make a pattern, but I don’t know much past basic stitches. I’m ready to learn, though!

    I think I am something more than beginner. I improve my skills on sewning every day.

    in reality, definitely a beginner. though in my mind, I’ve already made haute couture.

    I guess, beginner-intermediate, because I haven’t made much but I know how to do the basics. : )

    Intermediate, not totally new but definitely not an expert.

    Intermediate? I can follow a pattern like nobody’s business, but I’m completely lost without one.
