Embroidery is the handcraft of decorating fabric or other materials with needle and thread or yarn. Embroidery may also incorporate other materials such as metal strips, pearls, beads, quills and sequins. It is most frequently recommended for caps, hats, coats, blankets and/or dress shirts. It’s also available with a wide variety of thread or yarn color. One characteristic of embroidery is that the basic techniques or stitches of the earliest work such as chain stitch, buttonhole, running stitch, satin stitch, and cross stitch remain the fundamental techniques of hand embroidery today. However, with machine embroidery, like TopShelf offers, it’ll mimic hand embroidery, especially in the use of chain stitches. – Fort Collins
