Embroidery Techniques

Techniques I have worked, tips, and my completed projects

There are a lot of embroidery techniques, and variations of, within the world of ‘hand embroidery’. We won’t always agree on the classification either! Some people prefer the more broad interpretations, whilst others prefer more detailed, technical classifications.
Within this page you will find links to the techniques I have explored, and some of the projects completed within each. I haven’t linked all the projects completed over the years. If you would like details on a project previously worked (or in the process!), that isn’t covered off within these pages, feel free to use the ‘Categories’ search at the bottom of each page.

My Embroidery Journey and studies in Hand Embroidery

I have successfully completed the RSN Certificate, but that is just the beginning of my studies in hand embroidery! It was a great introduction to the technical world of hand embroidery, but with a thirst to truly explore and understand each technique, I have started the San Fransisco School of Needlework and Design’s ‘Comprehensive Studies’ Programme. This is opening up a whole new world of knowledge and skills, building on those skills learnt at the RSN.

If you would like to view the projects I completed as part of the RSN Certificate, you can find them here.

Can I help you in any other way?

If you have any questions, or would just like a chat, feel free to use the ‘contact me‘ page, where you will be able to send me an email. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!

If you would like to stay up to date with my current projects and thoughts, do join my mailing list! I won’t bombard you with emails, you will receive a (roughly) monthly email with my latest projects, tips and on occassion, other tidbits from the stitching world!

Catherine of Hillview Embroidery

Thanks so much for visiting today! I’m Catherine, and it’s great to have you here. You will find here lots of information about my projects and designs, what worked, what didn’t, what I enjoyed, what I didn’t!

With a Certificate in Technical Hand Embroidery from the RSN, combined with my current technical studies in depth of each technique at the San Fransisco School of Needlework and Design, I strive to complete each piece to a high degree of technical excellence. But I also like to stretch the ‘rules’ and explore my own methods and techniques!

Email me or connect with me on social media for any questions, or to keep up what I’m up to!
