I did a sampler several years ago, and I just got back into it.  However, I've done a lot of embroidery, so this isn't totally new territory for me.

Lakshmi

Welcome.  Please read all the NOTES.  They explain our policies, the laces we include, and how the software works.  Join any groups that interest you.  We do have one for BEGINNERS.  There are also 2 tutorials for beginners (free!) on this site.  The opening page of that group also has a list of other sites with really good beginners tutorials. There is enough here to get you started. As you progress please show us pictures.  If you have any questions about our site, contact me and I'll try to help.
