Learn all the stitches you need

The lexicon of embroidery stitches is a resource for  embroidery enthusiasts to make finding and learning stitches as easy as possible. The making of this resource is funded through Patreon – a membership based funding platform. You can become a supporter, too, and make the new video tutorials possible. Click here to learn more.

Are you a beginner? Start your journey with the 7 basic embroidery stitches and go from there.

Are you looking for a stitch and don’t know its name? The stitch glossary helps you with that!

Are you a seasoned stitcher? In this database of over 200 embroidery stitches, you’ll find what you need to learn even more stitches or remember a stitch from earlier projects.

New embroidery stitch tutorials

These new versions of each stitch tutorial include a video lesson and the illustrated tutorial. I also added some written tipps and instructions for stitches I get asked a lot about (like all the french knot problems 😉 ).

200 photo tutorials

All of the 206 old photo stitch tutorials in one place. Choose your stitch family and find your embroidery stitch! Each tutorial has step by step photos without any fluff so that you can easily follow them.

the stitch glossary

Not sure of the name of your stitch? The stitch glossary is a list of pictures of every embroidery stitch in the lexicon with their English name and many translations into languages like French, German, Spanish and Portugese!

Support the lexicon of embroidery stitches on Patreon!

The creation of the new video tutorials and schematics takes a lot of time and resources. I’m still a one-woman-show. The entire process is to make and edit the videos, illustrate the stitches and edit those, too, then publish all of them – repeat over 200 times. And then there is the hardware needed for all of this.

So, I have come up with a fun way to fund this enormous project: Patreon.

Patreon is a platform where you can subscribe to Pumora and get monthly benefits and perks that are exclusive to my Patrons (that is how subscribers are called over there).

You can choose between different tiers of subscriptions coming with their own set of benefits. And I have come up with some fun benefits that I hope you’ll enjoy! For example, every member can download a sampler template for all the stitches that will be shown in 2020. Also, the 2nd and 3rd tier includes a monthly stitching project that is exclusive to my supporters on Patreon.
