List of where to find Embroidery Patterns.


 In the past I have listed places where you can find embroidery patterns, both free and not so free.  So, dumb me, I thought I would do it again.  Wow!  I can’t believe how many sites there are in which to get embroidery patterns.

  In gathering these sites together there is a real possiblity that I didn’t  get everyone who carries cool patterns.  Please feel free to let me know what I have missed.  I will do a update post to make sure I cover everyone.

Also,  This list is in no particular order.  Some of these  sites are blogs and you will have to search their blogs to find their patterns.  Many of these sites offer patterns on Flickr,  blogs, Etsy, Artfire and other places.  Since my head was already hurting from  trying to piece this article together, I will leave it to you to explore each pattern supplier.  And lastly,  many of these sites have both patterns to buy and free patterns.  

ps-  I don’t have a personal relationship with many of these pattern suppliers.  I have no idea if any of them are evil.

  17. It’s arduous to find knowledgeable individuals on this subject, however you sound like you know what you’re speaking about! Thanks

  18. I have recently started a site, the info you offer on this site has helped me greatly. Thanks for all of your time & work.

  19. Located your weblog and decided to have a study on it, not what I normally do, but this weblog is amazing. Awesome to see a site that’s not spammed, and truly makes some sense. Anyway, great write up.
