Dhara Shah


Making beautiful embroidered designs is easy with this guide – you won't believe what you can create with just 15 stitches! Dhara Shah provides you with simple-to-follow tutorials and step-by-step photographs to help you get the hang of each one, no matter your skill level. Then, you can put your proficiency to the test with her 20 exciting patterns that are as achievable as they are striking!

Learn the secret to navigating sharp edges with the running stitch in the Ocean Waves project, or perfect your French knots to add amazing texture with the Sprinkles on My Donut project. Move on to the multi-stitch patterns, where you'll practice techniques like filling spaces with the satin stitch and embroidering letters to personalize your projects. Then go beyond the hoop and learn to embroider clothes and homeware with patterns like the Springing It Table Runner and the Woodsy Toadstool Sweater. Bring a personal touch to a child's nursery with the Pretty in Pastel Rainbow hoop customized with their name. Or gift your friends and family handmade Christmas ornaments to hang on their trees.

Whether you are just embarking on your embroidery adventure or you already have some experience under the belt, this will be your go-to guide for one-of-a-kind projects.
