Skilled hands can create beautiful masterpieces out of simple thread and needle using embroidery techniques.

Are you one of those who have mastered the art of embroidery?

Not a clue. I'm useless with a needle and thread. Even if I could do it, I wouldn't have the patience.
Unfortunately, I cannot. I can do cross stich though, which is close enough, right?

I can only embroider very simply, but I'd love to learn more detailed stitches one day when I have more time. When I was a little girl we still had embroidery classes at school (well...the girls did, which was rather sexist!) but a few years later they were stopped. I think it's sad that traditional arts like sewing, knitting and crochet aren't encouraged much any more (for men as well as women), although these days there are quite a few fabric artists who are utilising them in their creations.

I can embroider a little bit. I'm less interested inthe result than in how calming and relaxing it is to do. I don't have a lot of time for it these days.
I don't, but it would be a useful skill!
Matt, I've got to disagree. I don't think it's very useful, but it sure is pretty!

Very simple stitches, although I don't know what to do with the embroidery once it's done because I don't know how to stitch so I cannot incorporate my piece of work into something like a cushion, etc.
I think really to be honest, it is an 'art'.
So for me....I have to leave it with more skilful hands.
I would like to learn, if my eyes were 30 years younger!
Some of the work is to die for....and I do admire those who
put a great deal of time into it.
We don't really see much of it theses days, sign of the times.

In India it is done to perfection on white linen,and I just love it so much.

I don't have the slightest clue or interest in this area. I'm not accustomed to seeing the finished product or the process.
Yes, I do, but choose not to anymore since I have had a computer.

We all had to do small pieces at school when I was a child. It looks so old fashioned to me now that I have no interest. I also am one of those people who manages to stick themselves with the needle repeatedly! Ouch.
