Things to know about hand stitching

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

The right knowledge will help you to turn your own ideas into stitched projects and other textile techniques and to have even more fun with your projects.

We will continue to work on the site until we think enough is enough ... but we will certainly always come up with something even then!

If you still want to know more ... no problem! As soon as the little beast called Corona finally retires to nowhere, you can find out more in the regional groups of German Embroiderers Guild in the circle of other embroidery enthusiasts. Or book local classes courses at the International School for Textile Arts . The Distance Learning Classes of ISTA can of course be booked "virus-free" at any time.

We are happy to answer simple questions by email or at one of the events we attend ... once they are allowed to take place again.
