Win a modern embroidery starter kit, worth $85

Embroidery kits are becoming more and more trendy in the stitching world, and there’s many good reasons why that is so.

They are perfect for beginners because they have everything to complete your first embroidery project including skeins of floss, fabric and detailed instructions.

They are fabulous for advanced stitchers as well because even though we know how to do most of the stitches, these kits come with exciting goodies that we probably don’t already own, and are unique to each seller.

If you’ve been eyeing an embroidery kit on Etsy, you know that there’s many options available and some of them can get fairly expensive.

There’s a lot of thought, care and materials included in these kits so I believe the price is justified, but doing a thorough research to find the perfect kit for your needs is a must if you want to spend your money well.


It is through this research where I found Sarah’s shop,

    Currently my favorite stitch palette is Soft Blue Light

  3. Loretta says:

    Wow! I’m new to the site and haven’t had a change to peruse yet. I love that your palettes are available online to help those of us new to embroidery (particularly design) to choose what colors we’re actually “seeing” in a photo! That is one of the biggest “intimidations” I’ve needed to overcome in designing a pattern. I’d love to do silk shading embroidery someday, but feel overwhelmed with all the options. What I’ve seen on your website so far is… IT’S FABULOUS! THANK YOU!

  4. My favorite palette that was recently posted is Lago Di Dobbiaco. I love the mountains and the colors curated for this palette are truly beautiful.

  5. Dayan says:

    Purple Ombre

  6. Chantelle Russell says:

    I can not get enough of the pink jellyfish!

  7. Carla Hicks says:

    This is really hard to do because the palette depends on my mood. But I would guess woodsy, with some fall accents.

  8. Jay Dickey says:

    “I See A Blue Butterfly” is the most gorgeous and inspiring Stitch Palette I’ve collected on my Pinterest page. I look forward to new palettes in my inbox every Monday.

  9. Jay Dickey says:

    I See a Blue Butterfly

    Spring Bouquet of Flowers

    My heart’s desire is for all things lilac through to royal violet/ purple.

  15. Anne Tait says:

  16. Karen Smock says:

    Hi! My favorite stitch palette at this time is Magical Istanbul. With some green added, it would make a gorgeous field of flowers!

  20. Rae says:

    Oh man, how can you just pick one favorite??! My current favorite is Summer Girl because man am I longing for the beach! That’s my happy place and that palette just takes me right there. So gorgeous!

  21. Naomi says:

    This has been a fave of mine for a long time now! Both the picture and the pallette!

  22. Mary Connors says:

    What a nice way to introduce the art of embroidery, or even a sweet way to re-enter the craft after some time away

  23. Sherry Crisp says:

    Hummingbird Close-Up

  24. Sherry says:

    Hummingbird Close-Up is perfect for now. We have so many Hummingbirds right now getting ready for their long migration

  25. Sandra says:

    Picking a favourite palette is like picking a favourite child. I love them all. If pressed, anything with purple is a real winner. I quite like SPA0514, Smoke in the Water, from December 2020.

  26. Lynn Jarzombeck says:

    Favorite Stitch Palette: Reddish in CloseUp. It is vibrant and alive. Can use this color mix in many projects. Especially like it for a quilting project. Each color can be expanded in it’s range to create diversity and interest .

  27. kate jocelyn says:

    SPA0507 ( San Francisco) is my favorite– love those warm, spicy colors!

  28. Jacqueline Steele says:

    My favorite Stitch Palette is “Blue and Purple Mosaic”. I’m using it presently on a SAL with Peppermint Purple.

  29. It’s really hard to choose a favorite. They change with the season, the project, my mood . . . If I had to choose one that stands out it is Chocolate Chip. I acquired a puppy that looks just like the photo the week this palette was released!

  30. Mona Kuntz says:

    SPA0737 Proud Hummingbird (7/30) is my favorite, but honestly I love many of them. I particularly like SPA0737 because of the beautiful colors depicted, but also because I can honestly envision myself trying to stitch that hummingbird. In fact, that’s why I’ve saved this one because I am contemplating how to make a pattern from this particular subject and using these colors, or whether I should forget the pattern and just start making the bird. I really enjoy looking at the palettes you create for the various pictures, and I often marvel at the colors you find.

  31. Sandy Beasley says:

    My favourite is Auburn Autumn.

  32. Jodi adams says:

    My dad used to embroider to relieve stress, he taught me how to do a few basic stitches but it has been years. Would live to learn again. The sweet berries palette is my favorite.

  33. Kristen Straut says:

    My favorite stitchpalette? You might as well ask who my favorite child is! It’s easier to say I like the Autumn color palettes, like Walking in the City, A Basket Full of Flowers, Brown Wood Branch and Cozy in Green. Basically anything with green, bronze and gold!

  34. Patricia Salada says:

    My favorite palette is Brown & Yellow Butterfly, NO. SPA0760. A thistle will always grab my attention, as well as butterflies.

  35. Susan Hobkirk says:

    Stylish Dogs

  69. Aubrey Harns says:

    My favorite is Purple Cityscape Near Water! So pretty & the colors are a multi-use palette.

  70. Shawna Gregg says:

    My favorite palette is Black Bear. I love the images where you use tones of the same color, and this one particularly appeals because I’m a sucker for grayscale pieces. I also love how you link similar images to each post, so we can build off of the original palette and flesh out the colors and shades we want to use. Thank you for that. I also enjoy your pieces with people in it, as it helps with skin tones!

    1. krisztina says:

      Thank you so much Shawna for your kind words, I really appreciate you shared your thoughts with me and am very glad that you find the Similar Palettes feature useful!

  71. Marcy says:

      “Tales of Greens and Reds”

    I love the fig and thyme cocktail! Such a gorgeous pallet!

  87. Joyce Garrow says:

    All the palettes are just wonderful, but the Fig and Thyme Cocktail is a favorite; the colors look and feel light and airy – a great combination. When I saw the palette at first I was imagining what I could stitch with these colors.

  88. Sabrina says:

    DMC 312. I like the color because it’s just one of my favorite colors lol! Especially the color pallets for the peacocks! I do t remember if it’s one of the colors but I am slowly but surely making one now for my nieces is denim jacket.

      I love the Stardust Stitch Palate. I use these colors frequently in my needlepoint particularly in my counted needlepoint where I can play with the colors.
