"I paint portraits and design my own patterns for embroidery. I am sometimes as intimidated as you seem. At what ever level you work, enjoy it. I am trying to sell, so it is important to me to do design. Remember that all of us had to start…"

"Hi Linda,  There have been so many wise and thoughtful responses to your interesting post!  I liked the comparison of following a pattern to playing an instrument from sheet music. Every rendition is unique. As are your kit pieces. Better…"

"You're welcome, Linda.  The course I took was from Karen Ruane.  I adore her work and so took a class she was offering.  She offers classes throughout the year and there may be one that will appeal to you.  Simply Google her…"

"Thank you, Ann, for your thoughtful reply!  I am not an illustrator either, so I do use lots of different sources when I have a need for subject and can't draw it.  Taking an online class that pushed you outside your zone a bit is a…"

"Linda, I haven't read any of the comments and answers to your question, but I began working on "kits".  This is how I discovered what I really liked best - surface embroidery - and how I learnt to stitch perfect stitches. …"

"Hi Noelle.  Thank you for your thoughts, tips, and the naming of a few resources I will check out.   Thanks to ALL of you for making me feel quite a bit less "uncreative" for not designing my own original patterns and charts.…"

"Hi Linda, I agree with the other responses to your question.   For me creativity comes in not just working a design and changing colors but with the laying of each stitch.  I love seeing how the various stitches look different depending…"

"Linda, you say "When I see work like that which is posted here and elsewhere around the internet, I confess to feeling inadequate--since I don't create but only stitch.  Suddenly it feels as though I'm doing…"

"Carol, thanks for your reply.  I agree with you that it would be quite helpful (and interesting!) to see more information on each piece, if people have time to add those details.  You're right, it would also be good to see credit go…"

"Linda, your comment that members . . . “appear to create all (your) work from scratch” is a good question. I often wonder what is the source of the beautiful creative projects. Are they made from scratch, adapted or kits? Along with the…"

"I agree absolutely with Sue Jones's reply. I'd also point out that printed pattern books go way back to the earliest days of printing, and the oldest samplers were intended to record design motifs and ideas for future use. Embroiderers…"
