What is Embroidery ?
It is the handicraft of decorating fabric or other materials with needle and thread or yarn. It may also incorporate other materials such as metal strips, pearls, beads, quills, and sequins. Embroidery is most often used on caps, hats, coats, blankets, dress shirts, denim, stockings, and golf shirts.
