Treat yourself to one of these beginner-friendly modern embroidery kits and get started on your next embroidery design project right away!
Kits are perfect for trying out a new craft because they come with everything you need to get started! Instead of spending the time (and often extra money!) to purchase the supplies separately, buy a beginner embroidery kit and get started right away.
Many of the kits below include everything you need to make a complete embroidery project: a wooden or plastic embroidery hoop, needle, embroidery fabric, and assorted colors of embroidery floss. Some of the fabric even comes pre-printed with the design, so you won’t have to trace it from a piece of paper.
Other kits have fewer supplies and are usually less expensive as a result. These kits can be a great option if you already have a wooden hoop and some floss. That way, all you need to do is print the pattern PDF! Make sure you read the description on each kit listed below to see what is included!
What to Look for in an Embroidery Kit
Here are some of the supplies you will need to make an embroidery design. Most kits include these items — but just in case you want to build your own kit, here are some of the supplies you might need!
Embroidery hoops come in many sizes and styles. Wooden hoops are very popular and relatively inexpensive. Many people choose to leave their project in the hoop, and use it as a frame to display their design.
There are also a few types of plastic embroidery hoops to choose from. Many people love these no-slip embroidery hoops because they grip the fabric tightly to make stitching even easier. Plus, they are reusable.
There are several different types of fabric that are suitable for hand-embroidery. In general, you’ll want to choose a woven fabric made from natural material like cotton or linen. Look for a material with a lower thread count – around 120 to 150 – so that your embroidery needle will glide through the fibers with ease.
Pre-wash the fabric to avoid any shrinkage or puckering. And, if you’re planning to use heavy designs, beads, or other embellishments, add a layer of stabilizer to the back of your fabric.
Embroidery Floss or Thread
Although you have many choices when it comes to embroidery floss, the DMC brand seems to be the most popular among embroidery artists. DMC threads are high quality and come in almost any color you can imagine.
