If you’re looking for the perfect gift to give the embroiderer in your life then you’ve definitely come to the right place. I’ve been embroidering for over 40 years and in this Embroidery Gift Guide, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite embroidery supplies.

So we’ll start by covering the basic supplies every embroiderer needs.
We’ll finish with some awesome gift ideas that your embroidery enthusiast, whether beginner, advanced or somewhere in between, would love to have.
