  3. Maureen Bond says:

    I have failed.
    My efforts are woeful but I have added them to my Flickr at

  4. Rose Mary Muller says:

    Hi Sharon, what a great idea coming up with the Journals, have printed them double sided and have started a binder with them. I love them and can't wait to use them.

  5. Sharon B says:

    Karen the next set are here
    I am not sure what you mean you cant get them to work – do you mean cant open them , cant download them, couldn't find them please let me know so I can help

  6. Karen Carroll says:

    Thanks so very much for giving us some free stitch modules. You can tell you're putting in alot of work to make them. On Stitchin' Fingers site it says the next 2 modules are out, but I can't get them to work. Please help. Thank you for all you're doing. Karen

  7. Leslie Kenreich says:

    Thanks so much, Sharon. I am thrilled to have this reference material. Leslie

  8. JoWynn Johns says:

    Absolutely wonderful, Sharon. In an EGA correspondence course 10 years ago, I learned to document all my work, and I have continued to do so. My TAST 1 and 2, Personal Library of Stitches, Sumptuous Surfaces, and other samples are already in plastic sleeves in binders, but nowhere near as systematic and organized as these templates. I will love using them. Thank you so much. I will also volunteer as a copy editor or proof reader.

  9. Elizabeth K says:

    This is wonderful!!!!!! Thank you so much.

  10. Bev says:

    I am very new to embroidery, and love your detailed explanation of each stitch. I refer to them all the time. Your new step by step stitches are wonderful

  11. Karen Carroll says:

    Got the first two free stitches. Can hardly wait for some more. Karen Thanks again for doing all this work for us.

  12. Jan says:

    Hi Sharon. I came across this post from another blogger and wanted to say that you are an answer to a prayer for me. I am a complete and utter dunce when it is comes to handstitching and being housebound can not attend classes to lean the skills. What you have created might see me cross another to do thing of my bucket lsit.
    Thank you very much.

  13. Maureen Bond says:

    Thank you Sharon for taking the time to, once again, assist everyone in make life easier.
    What a great idea and for me, no more frustration in searching through countless messy collections of paper.

    You deserve a medal.

  14. Sharon B says:

    Mahalakshmi your US letter file is correct it starts with back stitch – then buttonhole then herringbone. If you want the A4 file try downloading it again as it was probably a wonky download.

  15. Phillipa says:

    WOW!! And thanks for your generosity.You must have spent oodles of hours compiling this idea and you are giving it away. A truly generous soul.

    Again thanks
    Phillipa in NewZealand

  16. Marian says:

    Great idea. Although I have been stitching off & on for many years, I have never put together a stitiching file. Cant wait for the rest. Thanks

  17. Shelley says:

    A lovely idea Sharon! On a similar note, the October issue of "Through the Needle" free magazine has the start of a "Foot Book" ………… encouraging people to experiment and record the use of the different feet for their sewing machine ………… I'm thinking of doing one and including different machine stitches (I don't have many automatic ones) too

  18. Sue D says:

    WOW and oh yeah – woo hoo! Group sounds great. Love love love the format. Now maybe I can make some order out of all the bits and snippets of inspiration I have floating around my house! Can't wait for more!

  19. Mahalakshmi says:

    I tied to open the Pdf files. But it says the is damaged and could not be repaired.Can anyone help me?When I open the US Letter Stitch pdf file the first page I get is Back stitch,I am confused.

  20. Lisa says:

    Thank you so much for making these pages. They are wonderful! I can't wait to see the others when they are ready.

  21. Maureen Greeson says:

    Thank you Sharon. I like things at hand, not on the computer, when I work. These are just up my alley!!

  22. judie mellars says:

    Lovely job, perfect for inspiring further research into a stitch and holding the results together , great . thank you judie.

  23. Thank you so much for creating these pages. They are printed and in a binder already!

  24. Marty53 says:

    Such a brilliant idea, Sharon! This is gonna be such a great resource for beginners to experienced stitchers! Now, you know we are going to need a choice of custom binders to go with these, don't you? TeeHee!

  25. suzan says:

    These are wonderful. Thank you so much!

  26. geni says:

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful Stitch File samples!
    Using Mistyfuse is a very good idea.

  27. Robbie Payne says:

    What a great idea!! And thanks for sharing all your tips!!!

  28. Lin Taylor says:

    Just fabulous, Sharon! A free form group will be great!

  29. Lynda White says:

    This is great! For years I have played around with the idea of hand embroidery and put it down when it became to complicated. (left handed) After a lifetime of learning to adapt instructions to what works for me, I think now I can finally buckle down and learn. Thank you for the samples and the idea of a group is outstanding!

  30. Raphaela says:

    Sharon, these stitch files are wonderful. You thought of everything and even knew that I always forget to note the source for the pictures I save for inspiration. To use Mistiful is a good idea, too. I love it, use it and have always some at hand. And I would say yes to a group on stitchin fingers.
    These files look so good that it will be a joy to work with them. Thank you so much, Sharon, for all the work you did.

  31. Diane says:

    Thank you so much for going forward with this idea. I love your page design. You have really thought of everything. I plan to introduce the idea of stitching to my granddaughter and we will build a book with our lessons.

    I have enjoyed the TAST flickr group a lot. So many caring, sharing folks there. I find the Stitchin Fingers less easy to use, but I may have to join in so as not to be left out!

  32. Judy Harper says:

    This is absolutely FABULOUS! Thank you so much for taking time to share. YES it would be great on Stitchin' Fingers – would cause me to take the time to go there and really learn and see what others are doing in one place.

  33. Margaret says:

    Fabulous! Can't wait to see what stitches are in the next set.

    Thank you.

  34. Colleen says:

    Thank you! I have wanted this feature for years. You have such an abundance of stitch knowledge and I have thought about compiling it for myself, but hadn't gotten to it. Sign me up for the modules!

  35. Jeanne says:

    thanks, Sharon ! It is really a great idea , you are so talented!

  36. Séverine Allais says:

    Thank you Sharon for your wonderful work. I am waiting for the next modules. I should be pleased to join a stitch along group on stitchin'fingers. Severine

  37. Maggi says:

    What a fantastic idea. You are so generous. Thank you.

  38. Thanks Sharon, this is awesome! I printed my templates out on card stock, that way it will be sturdier than paper. You have done a fabulous job making these templates and I definately will be buying the modules as you get them done!

  39. Chris Mac says:

    Brilliant Sharon – my pages are in their little plastic coats and i'm now waiting eagerly to join the stitch along.
    thanks Chris

  40. Viv Estill says:

    Thanks Sharon – a stitch along sounds great

  41. neki rivera says:

    i skimmed through, no reading yet.but from what i saw this is truly spectacular!!answered prayers in
    putting order into chaos .thank you!!

  42. CaLynn says:

    Wow, I love this! I reference your stitches all the time so having them handy when a computer is not would be wonderful! 😀

  43. Jane says:

    I think this is a brilliant idea. I thoroughly enjoyed TAST, but then you forget what the stitches are. This would be a fantastic way to keep track of them and to keep using them

  44. Corina says:

    Dear Sharon, TAST was a great experience, I would love to join a stitch-along group! Thank you!

  45. Marie -Claude in France says:

  46. Andrea says:

    Your way of doing is great and will help the future generation stitchers.
    I appreciate your generacity and thanking you for this.
    I am happy i am a member of this community.

  48. Karin says:

    I don't know how to thank you for the templates, I have been thinking about a way to make a binder with all the beautiful and very handy stitches you show on your blog, but couldn't figure out a way to do it, you are a life saver. xoxox

  49. alka acharya says:

    Hi Sharon,
    The idea of having group is just great. Great Effor. Thank you for showing such interest on us and making us addictive of Stitching Fingers. Your creativity is just out of the world. I once again thank you for involving us.

    All the best. Hope to see the new group soon and with lot more great ideas. I would like to buy the guide provided it could be post to india.

  50. Faith says:

    At this point I plan to collect the whole set. Part of me is bummed that it's not all at once, but the adult part of me is happy because then I can build my abilities along with the collection, which wouldn't happen if I got them all at once. Thank you for the time and effort put in to creating these for us.

    I think I would join a SAL on Stitchin' Fingers.

  51. nancilyn says:

    Sharon, you just continue to amaze. Consider yourself admired, adored and smothered with virtual hugs. Thank you for all you do for us. Thank you!

  52. Lisa Dunn says:

    These are great! I definitely think we should have a stitch-along group on stitchin fingers!

  53. Mahalakshmi says:

    Hi Sharon,
    The work you have done is awesome.The concept is excellent and the variations will be of great help and will come handy when we are stuck in the middle of doing an embroidery.I appreciate your generosity in sharing what all you know.I think you must be breathing eating and sleeping embroidery:)Thanks a lot for putting in so much effort to do these samplers and I am sure this generation will be inspired by your work to do embroidery.

  54. Ria says:

    This is wonderful! Thank you so much!

  55. nelapx says:

    I want to buy tell Sharon when ready …

  56. Sharon B says:

    Margarita a stitch along is when a group of people stitch and share what they have done. TAST 1 and 2 are both stitch alongs. I usually run fairly free form ones as people have busy lives so I encourage people to stitch along and join in when they can.

  57. Margarita says:

    I never participated on a stitch along, but I want to know molre about it.

  58. Sharon, the templates are just brilliant, your knowledge and talent are out of this world. These are just what everyone will have been looking for for years. Sign me up for the stitch along as well.
    kind regards,

  59. Conni says:

  62. Oh Sharon! this is fantastic! I passed it along to the Rocky Mountain Crazy Quilters who will pass it on to everyone they know! Wow! Great idea !

  63. Marianne in NJ says:

    Thank you for your generosity. I would be interested in a stitch along group. Think I am going to sign up for your silk Ribbon Class at, I am attending An Adventure in Crazy Quilting and cannot wait to meet you. You have been my idol in CQ for years.

  64. Christina says:
