This kit is great, with vibrant colors and a pattern that looks lovely when finished (even when done by an embroidery novice like me). It's great to start out with as it only requires a couple of basic stitches, though I'm sure you could make it more complicated if so desired.

This kit is great, with vibrant colors and a pattern that looks lovely when finished (even when done by an embroidery novice like me). This provided a nice opportunity to practice a bunch of different stitches.

I wanted to give my mother a small token of my appreciation for welcoming me into the family business. As a first time embroiderer, I had a wonderful experience with Jessica's kit. Packaging & design were beautiful, instructions were thorough , materials were adequate, and it came with a thoughtful and lovely hand-written note. Will be buying from MinatureRhino again in the future. Thanks, Jessica !

About

Stitch by stitch...

***So very excited to announce my new book, Stitched Gifts, an embroidery craft book published by Chronicle. Please read all about it here: http://bit.ly/NdQIs6 ***

It all started with a little stitched heart made on an airplane trip from New York to California. I had no gift for my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary, so during that five hour flight I embroidered their names, Helen and Lito, into an arrow pierced heart. My grandmother always preferred a handmade gift and treasured them; cards were all kept in boxes, notes on the fridge, my lopsided birdhouses hung in the backyard, and my heart nestled among her saint figurines and reliquaries.

On a whim, I shared this piece in my shop and received a great response. Since then I've been stitching up custom pieces for weddings, anniversaries, new babies, birthdays, and just because. Everyday, just about, you can find me stitching in my Brooklyn studio (aka the spare bedroom). Now, I teach embroidery classes and share fun, easy kits in my shop too.

If I'm not stitching, I'm up to some creative endeavor or another. I also make stationery, books, and dabble in all sorts of media. Making excites me, and being able to share the things I make with you is a great gift.
