On these pages you will find interesting facts about hand embroidery and information about House of Textile Arts.

The right knowledge will help you turn your own ideas into embroidery and other textile techniques and enjoy your projects even more.

We will work continuously on the site until we think, so, now is enough … but we will surely always come up with something even then!

If you still want to know more … no problem! Find out more in the regional groups of the German Embroidery Guild in the circle of other embroidery enthusiasts. Or book local classes at the International School for Textile Arts. ISTA’s distance learning courses can be booked “virus-free” at any time.

We will be happy to answer simple questions via email or at one of the events we attend.
