Stitchers Templates

My stitchers templates are designed with other embroiderers and crazy quilters in mind. They will take your stitching to the next level.  With them you can create hundreds of different hand embroidery patterns.

They are made of clear plastic so you can position them easily and are compact in your sewing box. To use them position the template in place, use a quilter’s pencil to trace along the edge of the template to create a pattern. You can stitch along this line to decorate the seam.

Each set has a free ebook of patterns to use or spark ideas.
