Embroidery kits make for a great activity that uses imagination and dexterity. With these kits, you can create delicate projects to enjoy as decoration or give as a gift. Here are some of the best for beginners wanting to get into embroidery.

What to Consider in an Embroidery Kit

Here’s what to know before you buy:

  • Design: Consider if the kit has a premade design to follow a pattern or a blank canvas. Beginners would likely be most successful with patterns and instructions.
  • Tools: Determine if the kit comes with everything you need, such as needles, fabric, thread, etc.
  • Size: Consider if the embroidery hoop and fabric included are large enough for your intended design.
