Stitching & Crafting

3. Embroidery


  • Learn to embroider or cross-stitch. MaryJane’s Ideabook and MaryJane's Stitching Room book have basic tutorials.
  • Make a sampler for future reference and future generations. Frame it. Turn-of-the-century embroidery samplers are now collector’s items. Practice each stitch until you are happy with it.


  • Embroider your own set of “Days of the Week” tea towels from MaryJane’s Ideabook, or embroider all of your badges onto a jacket, quilt, or tote! For instructions on how to embroider your badges, click here.


  • Embroider all of the “Vitamin Ball” patterns from MaryJane’s Ideabook on a set of tea towels, a quilt or a wall hanging.
  • Embroider a set of pillowcases with a pattern of your choice.
