Do you look for a beautiful and inspiring project that will allow you to relax and feel great all in one deal?

Then you are in for a treat!

Architectural embroidery designs are modern and elegant and will make you proud to show off your work to friends and family.

To embroider by hand is the perfect way to de-stress and have fun.

With each stitch your worries will slowly find its way to the exit.

In fact, studies show how creating with your hands for just 20 minutes reduces blood pressure and allows your body to breathe.

Amazing isn't it?!

But to just embroider anything might not be the answer.

Because if you don't enjoy what you're stitching or think it doesn't look great, you will most likely feel discouraged and end up not continuing.

Architectural hand embroidery is the perfect match as it isn't just soothing to make, it also looks stunning!

With modern hand embroidery techniques you are able to create advanced looking stitchery with only 5 basic stitches.

Because it’s not the number of techniques you know that makes you a better embroiderer…

It's knowing how to effectively use the basics to your advantage (which we can't wait to share with you!)

We show you how to it do all the steps of the way, so that you don't have to worry about not having any previous experience with the architectural style (or hand embroidery at all).

"I never thought I could like an activity like embroidery until I found Charles and Elin on Instagram. What they are doing is so amazing and so different from what I had seen before that I decided to try their ecourses and I can't tell you how glad I am. I've discovered a new hobby with the best teachers I could have asked for. The close-up videos and step by step process really made it perfect for me!"
