Why Follow A Pattern?

Following an existing pattern to start this craft is great for people who:

  1. Think they cannot draw!
  2. Perfectionists who are not so keen on the random messy lines that can be synonymous with machine embroidery
  3. People who would like to build up confidence and build up their skills in this craft before moving onto their own thread drawing
  4. Personally, I find it is very therapeutic just to simply trace the lines in thread without having to make design/colour decisions or to have to follow written instructions as I sew. You don’t have to think you just simply stitch over what is in front of you. I find the repetitive process of the stitching is soothing and satisfying, both by hand sewing and by machine.
