Embroidery is the use of needles and threads of varing thickness, with or without beads or other baubles, to lay down a logo or pattern onto fabric using various sewing stitches.

Embroidery is a great way to show off your device. It can also be used to decorate girdles, sleeves, bodices, necklines or pouches. It is promoted in Lochac by the Worshipful Company of Broiderers.
