NOTE: This was a special, one-time event we launched for National Embroidery Month in 2017. The response was overwhelming.
We sent out over 300 free teaching packets as far away as Moscow and Dubai to individual stitchers. We received hundreds and hundreds of photos in return (more than we could post here). It was exciting but it was very expensive for us to do. This is a tiny operation!
Scores of you are already writing in requesting free materials for 2018, but we are doing something different this year, so we can cover our costs and not lose our shirts, skirts and shoes. Details will be in all of February's newsletters, so be sure to sign up here:

Did you know that February is National Embroidery Month? (It is, mom.) Let's celebrate it in a meaningful way, by making it TEACH Embroidery Month! You are going to become an embroidery teacher. Here's how...
I know how wonderful it feels to teach someone to embroider, so why don't YOU get in on these good feels?
Here's how you can join me in my efforts, and how I can help you teach someone:
1. You build the kit. Gather your extra embroidery supplies! I know you have like, 20 pairs of embroidery scissors and at least 8 hoops. I bet you have plenty of loaners lurking around.
2. We send you the patterns. (Yes, internationally, too!) Email us with your name and address, and tell us you are going to teach a friend (or group of friends) how to embroider. We will send you FREE Sublime Stitching patterns and instructional materials! Yes, really.
Not so fast! I want something in return.
3. I want photos of you teaching. I don't care if they're Pinterest-worthy or not! I want the names of who's stitching, where you gathered, the jokes that were told, the snacks that were nibbled, the pricked fingers, and the results -be they humble or daring.
How should you share your photos? You can email them to us, or use the tag:
All in February, I am going to be sharing and reposting as many of your stories as I can, while also teaching as many people embroidery as I can.
