Embroidery has a significance in not only in the real world, but also in the world of historical romance books. The women we read about are always picking up their embroidery or needlepoint to keep themselves busy. In the real world, embroidery has been around since 3,500 BC, but this isn’t a history lesson. So, if you plug in #modernembroidery on Instagram, you’ll get roughly 450,483 post with just that one hashtag. I know that’s a lot to take in so here are five thread-artist you should be following!
Besides having the cutest Instagram handle ever, Kara brings you not just simple, beautiful embroidery, but also fun (and relatable) pins, and other homemade goods!

She creates breathtaking tiny flower embroidery pendants and bracelets, along with other hoop creations!
