- Complete Embroidery How-To and Stitch Diagrams by Jenny Hart

Kit is packaged in super cute Floral Fantasy Tote!

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founded independently in Austin, Texas in 2001 by Jenny Hart, due to an overabundance of bunny-n-duckie patterns and outdated, overly-difficult instructions for embroidery.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!

Comment to Win: What level sewer would you consider yourself?

Congratulations to corvus who won a DVD package from Threads!

    I took sewing in school and loved it but lost the patience for it. Now 10 years later love it again but would say I am beginner-intermediate. I use burda patterns I am not sure if it is just me but I wish the directions were just a bit clearer. But I always struggle through love your web-site its one of my favs.

    Advanced, mainly because I’ve been at it for so long! I like being able to see where a pattern needs a dart or other adjustment to make a perfect fit.

    I guess I would call myself beginner-intermediate although I have been sewing for many years now, but never anything really difficult.
