First I’ll explain the different types of embroidery materials and tell you what you need to make the projects.

Then, I’ll teach you the basic embroidery stitches and share some tips and tricks that I’ve learned during years of embroidering. I’ll show you how to use them to create different textures for your design.

Together we’ll use the techniques you’ve learned to create a couple of textured embroidery pieces, including embroidery on wearables.

About the Instructor



My name is Miriam Polak and I’m a designer and embroidery artist. I found embroidery to be the perfect creative outlet and a great relaxing hobby. I've been embroidering almost every day since I discovered it.

I like to think of embroidery as illustration with thread and I create modern and fun pieces - not your grandma’s embroidery. Colours and textures are my love language and I put a lot of thought and heart into every piece I create. I want to make people smile when they're looking at my embroideries.

The main focus of my work is creating educational materials and helping others discover the joy of embroidery. I create embroidery patterns and kits that come with detailed step by step instructions as well as video tutorials. I also collaborate with leading craft magazines and companies (including Mollie Makes, Love Embroidery Magazine, Love Crafts, Be Creative, Rico Design) and I design embroidery patterns for them. I love teaching embroidery and showing that with a little patience and the right technique it’s really easy to embroider!

Q: How did you first start doing what you do?

Embroidery started as a relaxing hobby that helped me calm my mind after the whole day of work in a design studio. Soon I started experimenting with my own stitching techniques and incorporating textures to my design. The whole process was so enjoyable, that I was doing it for the pleasure of embroidering and I wasn’t putting pressure to create something perfect. This allowed me to freely explore my creativity, experiment and enjoy the process. Now I want to share the joy of embroidery with others!
