In days gone by, embroidery skills were the mark of an accomplished lady. Women of wealth and luxury spent hours creating intricate needlework and embroidery pieces while exchanging local gossip and news. They showed off their beautiful creations on handkerchiefs, framed pictures, tablecloths, and more. Those days are long past, but embroidery is still an admired skill. It can be relaxing to work with a needle and thread at the end of a long day at the office or taking care of the kids. Modern technology also offers another world of possibilities. Embroidery machines let you stitch beautiful motifs on everything from blankets to dresses, without having to spend hours mapping out designs or laboring with a needle, hoop, and thread. eBay has a range of embroidery items from traditional to state of the art. If you are starting out, you may want to look for an embroidery kit, which includes everything you need for a single project, along with important instructions.
