Great stitch! Thanks again for your tutorials.

Oh I am so proud that I found these tutorials! I'stitched' when I was a youngster but that was soooo long ago! My granddaughters want me to teach them embroidery and I just didn't know where to start! Can you help me out by telling me what needles to buy? (are all embroidery needles the same?) And how many threads to use for various stitches? Thanks so much for the "Stitch School"!

Betty, thanks for the great questions. Rather than answer you here, I'll put together a separate post with embroidery basics about needles, threads, and other supplies. Which needles you use depends on the type of thread you use, and that depends on the look you're after, so it's not quite as simple as I thought. Will try to post in the next couple of days.

Thank you so much, Janet! I will be watching for the 'embroidery basics' post. We are excited to get started!

thanks again, I was wondering if you're considering doing a chain stitch profile ? I really enjoyed your stitch school

Chain stitch is shown with the lazy daisy stitch here:

The lazy daisy is really just a detached chain stitch!
