Project Description

Share your embroidery!

Whether you’re still working on your sampler, have a reference you’re super excited about, or have a completed piece, we want to see what you’ve created! Share wherever you are in your process, and remember:

  • Your colors definitely do not have to be realistic
  • Try to incorporate mistakes into your design, or take out those stitches and try again
  • Ignore the rules and make what you’re excited to make
  • You can go back and take any lesson with Danielle again
