Hannah Tan from Redfin, asked me to write a few words about the use of embroidery in the home which was included here in her blog article Showcase Embroidery in Your Home: 23 Unique Embroidery Ideas to Elevate Your Space. She collected quotes from 23 industry experts, including myself! If you’re ready to get crafty and want some ideas to add a homey touch to your loft in New York, NY, or decor inspiration for your cozy home in Toronto, ON, you will find great ideas, interesting tips, new websites to explore, and examples to admire.

The appearance of needlework in home decor is a definite sign that embroidery is making a comeback. Whether you crave natural materials, vintage pieces, or the comfort of traditional surroundings, there is nothing like owning a touch of “hand-made”. Accessories made with your personal touch like an embroidered pillow, or framed wall hanging will become a focal piece, and add unique character to your home. When creating that “special piece,” I suggest that you work with colors that you like and ones that compliment your style.

If you are looking for inspiration, or to enhance your embroidery skills, check out new my book Hand Embroidery Dictionary, C&T Publishing, which will be available September 25, 2021.
