What Embroidery Style Should I Learn?

Quiz Image

There are so many different types of embroidery in the world that when you decide to learn to stitch, it can be difficult to decide what to start with!

This quiz uses the four most common stitching types: counted cross stitch, needlepoint, "freestyle", and crewel. By answering a few questions about your preferences, I'll recommend the best of these styles for you to learn first. You may find you want to learn others later.
