Hand Embroidery

I found this neat site called the Hand Embroidery Network or HEN. "The website's aim is to encourage and pomote the practice and knowledge of the art of embroidery in all its forms and to bring together like minded people who enjoy needlework and wish to learn and share their knowledge."
You will find the following:
  • An illustrated hand embroidery stitch A to Z
  • Focus on embroidery basics such as threads, tools and fabrics
  • Free projects such as design templates and creative backgrounds
  • Take part in online exhibitions
  • Embroidery events
  • Embroidery techniques
  • Members gallery
  • Embroidery forum
  • Video tutorials
The network also has a blog. Check out the listings for October's Stitch A Day. The stitch samples are quite well done.
