Once you’ve mastered the basic embroidery stitches, there’s no stopping you now. To take your skills even further, try the "sequel" to the original sampler by Dropcloth Samplers. It includes 15 more stitches that build on your knowledge of embroidery. With more complex stitches like turkey work, needle weaving, and the wave, you’ll have a number of creative approaches you can use in your future hand embroidery projects.
Learn these stitches (and more) from Rebecca when you take her Stitch a Day Sampler class through CreativeBug!

About Dropcloth Samplers
Rebecca Ringquist is the owner of Dropcloth Samplers and the woman behind the DIY embroidery cloths. She started the operation almost spontaneously, choosing to sell her embroidery sampler design at a craft sale in 2010. The response was great, and it forced her to open her own shop not long after. “Each design comes with no directions,” she says, “in the hopes that you will find your own happenstance color relationships growing as you make it up as you go.”
