If you are intrigued about doing embroidery, I recommend starting with a kit. This is how I picked up embroidery again after quite a long time. It's perfect because it is a minimal investment and you don't have to hunt around for supplies. When looking to buy a kit, make sure the list of contents includes:
- A printed panel
- A needle
- Embroidery thread
- Full instructions
I recommend starting with a small, simple design first to build your confidence. However you should also choose a design that you like!
Here are some kits that are reasonably priced designed with beginners in mind. These are affiliate links.
