"I have been eyeing these patterns for weeks, and I finally decided to pull the trigger. I've been dying to learn how to embroider, and I just couldn't find any patterns that I loved and then I found y'all's instagram. I am SO excited to get started!!"
"Obsessed with your patterns! Can not wait for this monthly subscription!"

The embroidery design for January:
It is the first month of the new decade and we stand in front of endless opportunities and possibilities!
With aspirations and dreams as our motivation, Charles has designed a pattern from Greenwich village in South Manhattan to represent our goal to visit the city.
Even though it might not be your dream city to visit, it's a perfect pattern for self exploration. If you prefer a more modern look, you can choose to only concentrate on the contour work. Stitch all the contours in a single stranded black thread and you will have a modern hand embroidered drawing ready to be gifted or hung on your wall.
If instead you long to practise a more slow-stitch approach, we urge you to fill in with colours. The design gives you the colour codes and techniques that Charles used to stitch it up. You will notice that by simply shifting the direction of the stitches, you will be able to achieve a more vivid image. For example, embroider the wall on the upper part of the building with horizontal satin stitches, to contrast the vertical satin stitches on the lower green part of the building. Add diagonal satin stitches on the window and you have immediately created a more textural image than just by colour changes.
