How to Embroider - 6 Good Reaons Why You Should Learn

Learning how to embroider can be one of the most valuable things you learn how to do. It can give you countless hours of enjoyment not to mention the therapeutic benefit it can have as well.

In fact I love embroidery so much that I'm going to share with you 6 great reasons why you should learn how to embroider today.And the exciting thing is that I have a video for you that shows you how to start. But first things first.
Why should you bother to learn how to embroider?


Embroidery is Relaxing


As a busy mother of three I understand all too well how easy it is to get caught up in a hectic schedule. A lot of my spare time is taken up with my family's commitments. If you're like me and most people out there you probably spend very little time on yourself. Am I right.? There's always so much to do and there never seems to be any time left for you.


That's where learning how to embroider comes in. Isn't it about time that you did something for yourself? Isn't life supposed to be fun? Relaxing and getting rid of stress in your life can reap big rewards.It's fabulous for your health and for the people around you.


Embroidery can be very relaxing. Especially if you are working on something that doesn't take up much mental thinking (the projects I like the best). There's something about the repetitive nature of the stitches that is very calming for the mind and and good for the soul. It's almost impossible to rush the process unlike the sewing machine!

After a busy day there's nothing more enjoyable than sitting down with a needle and thread in hand.


Learning How to Embroider Can Be Inexpensive


Embroidery is one of the few hobbies that doesn't require a lot of money. You need very few tools to get you started and the equipment that you do need is very inexpensive. All you will need is an embroidery hoop, some fabric, a needle, thread and pair of scissor. That's it.


Embroidery is Portable


One of the other benefits of learning how to embroider is that it's portable. This means you can take it with you where ever you go. It's very easy to take your work in the car, on holiday or to a friend's house.I always attend my kids sporting and musical commitments with an embroidery or hand sewing project close at hand.


Embroidery is quiet


Learning how to embroider is very quiet . It's a hobby that you can still enjoy as well as watching the TV and being with your family. It's not necessary to have a separate room for your hobby and it doesn't disturb anyone around you.


You Can make Beautiful Things for You Family and Friends


Learning how to embroider can open up a new world of possibilities when it comes to gift giving and furnishing your home. Once you master a few simple stitches the sky is the limit to what you can create. You'll never be short of ideas for Christmas and birthday presents again. Imagine your friends faces when you tell them you made it yourself!


You Can Make Money from your Embroidery hobby.


Once you start creating lovely things for you and your friends you could also make some extra money for yourself by selling your work. There are lots of possibilities such as selling at a local market or selling online. Etsy and Ebay are just two sites on the Internet you could try.


Learning how to embroider could be one of the best decisions you make all year. So where do you start?
