Things worth knowing about hand embroidery

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

The right knowledge will help you to implement your own ideas in needlwork and other textile techniques and to enjoy your projects even more.

We will continuously work on the side until we think, so, now is enough … but we will certainly always come up with something!

If you still want to know more … no problem! As soon as the little beast called Corona finally retreats to nowhere, you can get information from other embroidery enthusiasts in the regional groups of the German Embroiderers Guild. Or book local courses at the International School for Textile Arts. The Correspondence courses the ISTA can of course be booked “virus-free” at any time.

We will be happy to answer simple questions via e-mail or on one of the Events in which we participate … if they can only take place again.

Have fun and lots of ideas with textile design!
