Gifts For Embroidery Lovers
Thoughtful Accessories For Every Embroiderer
Most embroiderers have a pin cushion, but let’s face it…we all pretty much have the same plain red tomato pin cushion. Why not find a cute handmade one to gift them?
Needle-minders are another great accessory that not everybody has. They help keep your needle secure with your work when you aren’t using it. There are some really unique ones on Etsy, including this one from Florals and Floss.
DMC Collector’s Tin
You really can’t go wrong buying embroidery lovers embroidery floss. DMC is some of the best quality floss out there. This tin contains 35 of DMC’s new 6 strand embroidery floss colors. It’s a nice selection of colors and the tin makes for a great little storage container.
Curated Fabric Bundles
Fabric is a must, especially high quality cotton and linen! These cotton fabric bundles by Matryoshka Doll Shop on Etsy have beautiful colors in them. (Cotton is one of my personal favorites / one of the nicest kinds of fabric to stitch on).
Embroidery Floss Organizers
Most people use plastic containers to organize all of their embroidery thread, so maybe it’s time for an upgrade! You can find a wood chest for organizing thread at Walmart, or more personalized options on Etsy.
As someone who is obsessed with embroidery, I’m always looking for more embroidery books to put in my collection. Here are a few that I personally own and love that I guarantee every person that embroiders will appreciate.
Embroidered Botanicals by Yumiko Higuchi
This book is great for all levels of embroiderers. It’s a beautiful book full of patterns and images of Yumiko’s beautiful work.
Colour Confidence in Embroidery by Trish Burr
This book is for those that have a bit of experience with embroidery, specifically with thread painting. This book has so much helpful information about choosing a good color palette and it comes with hundreds of DMC color combinations that work well together for blending color in embroidery!
The Crafter’s Box
The Crafter’s Box is a website full of online workshops, which includes embroidery and pretty much anything crafty you can think of! There are several options that would make great gifts from this site.
You can gift a subscription which can be used for anything on the site. There are individual workshops to choose from as well as craft supplies.
There are also plenty of embroidery kits available to purchase as well.
Embroidery Kits For The Beginner
If you’re shopping for someone that’s just starting learning embroidery, a kit is perfect! They’re great for all levels, but they’re especially helpful for those that are learning because they include all of the supplies you need to make the project as well as step by step instructions to complete the design.
For The Embroidery Lover That Travels
If the person you’re shopping for is always on the go, a travel case to keep all of their supplies in would make for a great gift! The case pictured above is a handmade case by 2BusySloth. Their shop offers several different fabric choices and styles. This particular case holds floss, needles, scissors, and has a pocket in the back for extra storage.
I hope this embroidery gift guide gave you some ideas for your loved one you’re shopping for! Check out my other gift guide for cross stitch.
