Learning hand embroidery is fun and relaxing and such a wonderful creative outlet. And while it can sometimes seem intimidating at the very beginning, it does not have to be. Once you get a handful of stitches under your belt, you are good to go and can make SO MANY things. Case in point, for my first years of stitching, I only used 5 stitches! You can read more about that HERE.
But once you get a few stitches under your belt, what stitch do you tackle next? The options are limitless and I am still learning new stitches all the time. So I decided to come up with my own personal list of 10 stitches that I think every embroiderer should know. I picked these stitches because not only do I use them most frequently in my own work, but they are also foundational stitches that you can build upon to create other stitch techniques.
