Some might be pardoned for thinking that hand embroidery is a dying art now that we have modern embroidery machinery to help us create amazing embroidery designs. In fact, this cannot be further from the truth as there are still many, especially your hardcore artists, that believe that hand embroidery is a real modern art and the creativity of the individual expressed through art should not be influenced by the intervention of modern embroidery machines.
Hand embroidery has been passed on from generation to generation long before the existence of modern embroidery machines and up to this day is still passed on from generation to generation. Hand embroidery is hold dear by those taught this art by perhaps a mother or grandmother that might not be alive anymore, and therefore for many hand embroiderers, there is an emotional and sentimental attachment to hand embroidery.
How Do I Know If Hand Embroidery Is For Me?
The problem we face when we want to experiment with something new is often the cost involved. When it comes to experimenting with hand embroidery, luckily you get to save on the astronomical cost of a modern embroidery machine. However, when you start off with something new you surely need someone to teach you how to do it properly, but unfortunately paying for embroidery training can be quite costly, and if you then realise hand embroidery is not for you, then all of that money invested goes to waste.
This is the reason why I am offering you the opportunity to a free modern hand embroidery course presented by two very passionate artists in their own right, Charles and Elin. Combined they have more than 250k followers on Instagram.
