Welcome to our blog!

Welcome to Feeling Stitchy, the Flickr Embroidery group blog! This blog has more than one talented blogger at the helm, scroll down to see the full list of peeps blogging... We hope Feeling Stitchy will inspire you to create new things - teach you new stuff, and introduce you to other crafty people. We'll be featuring projects, cool finds on Flickr and the web, free patterns, Etsy shops and interviews with embroiderers.

About Our Group (and Blog)
We're a friendly craft community and we're here to inspire you. We love all kinds of embroidery - Japanese cute, frilly and girly, old-school vintage, embroidered artworks, crewelwork, Subversive cross-stitchin' (and regular cross-stitch) and super-cool Sublime Stitching. Are you a creative machine embroiderer? We dig that, too! Basically we want to see anything you've embroidered yourself and want to share! Floresita created the Embroidery group on April 14, 2006, and little by little we've grown to over 5000 members!

How do I Join Your Group?
All you need is a Flickr account to join our group - they're free and easy to set up. Visit us, and add your pics to the pool, it's that simple! And who knows - we might feature your work here!

I have an Embroidery - related question...
Post it on our Discussion Boards! We have tons of talented members who love to help.

Who Blogs Here? 
All the Feeling Stitchy bloggers have their own blogs (see links below) - feel free to visit us! We're all avid crafters / small business people who volunteer our time here.

  7. I added this blog to my google reader a while ago, but actually spent some time clicking around it today and it's awesome. There are really a lot of great resources. Someone should blog some of the resource/turorial reminders that are available from time to time for those that only read through their rss feed.

    Thank you so much.

  9. How fun to see embroidery enthusiasts.
    For those that enjoy the more commercial styled embroidery, the advent of I-CLIQQ Embroidery Software may be of interest.

    www.i-cliqq.com

    Feel free to browse or link. If you just enjoy embroidering, you can find over 180 free designs to download, and have fun with.

  10. Hello there, feeling stitchy! I've been a follower now for a couple of months and would like to finally express how much I enjoy this blog. WHile I've always had an appreciation & silent love for embroidery, I have recently been very enamored with the act of embroiderING. Every post has been an amazing inspiration. It has caused me to have an even keener eye for the tiniest detail.

    Anyway, my point was to share something I just saw on the Etsy "handpicked items". I'm quite the tree lover so of course it would appeal to me. It can be found in the shop, HAREandDRUM.

    GORGEOUS!!!

  14. Hi there. I've been surfing through your blog for the past three days and its awesome. thank you for all the information. i'm an on off beginner since finishin high school. Recently started on a work to ward off the boredom that sometimes set as a newly wed. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=6463500&l=dade84c385&id=639105791
    The only thing that is difficult is that hand embroidery thread is not available in my country, Maldives. Hope to see more great stuff and links here. Thank you.
