Embroidery Stitches

I recently stumbled upon this AMAZING library of embroidery stitches. My only problem: I'm a visual person and so, when I decide to embroider, I want to be able to see a visual library of all my available options. So I organized the stitches, complete with pictures, here for easy reference. Click on the link for Sarah's Hand Embroidery tutorials.

Her website also gives great lessons on how to use these stitches together to create a full embroidery design. Check out her Redwork, Pattern Darning, Kalakdozi, and Chicken Scratch techniques.
