Embroidered Tea Towels

Tea Towels are a great gift - they're beautiful AND functional!

Personalize your tea towel with a design the recipient will love. There are so many fantastic embroidery designs available for every style and season. A strip of ribbon or fabric gives the towel a lovely finishing touch. (By the way, there is literally a design for everything! I just stitched this llama from Anita Goodesign's Como Se Llama? collection coming out in August 2016.)

We carry embroidery designs from Anita Goodesign and Floriani at StitchCraft, as well as all the accessories you need - Floriani and Madeira thread, stabilizers, tea towels and fabrics for embroidering, etc. Of course your machine does (almost) all the work, so having the right embroidery machine in good working order helps! We're an exclusive Baby Lock dealer, and I can say from personal experience that they are so easy to use and do a beautiful job embroidering! This gingerbread house was my first machine embroidery project, and I had the pleasure of stitching it out on a Baby Lock Destiny. The machine showed me exactly where it was going to stitch and told me when to change threads and what colors to use.

Don't have an embroidery machine? You can embroider tea towels by hand!

Not sure how to wrap your gift? Roll the towel in tissue paper and twist the edges like a Christmas cracker; put it in a small gift bag; or wrap some baked goodies in it. Even if you hand it to its recipient without any wrapping, your handmade gift is sure to be appreciated!
