If you follow me on Instagram and watch my IG stories often, then you already know that I love embroidery and that I have been working on this beautiful embroidery kit for beginners from LoveCrafts.com. I’m not a professional though, as a mater of fact, I just started late last year. I initially started with cross-stitch but later fell in love with embroidery and I haven’t stopped ever since. I now make embroidered home decors because I believe in the saying “Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Though I hardly make money on it because I can never mass produce items, I love the process. As a person who overthinks a lot, embroidery helps me capture peace and quiet whenever I need to get away from the craziness of motherhood.
Did you know that embroidery has lot of benefits when it comes to mental health?
Health Benefits of Hand Embroidery
For me, it has become a therapeutic escape from life’s daily conundrum. My previous job has wired my mind and body to be always on my toes, always in a hurry, and always rushing to finish everything on time that when we moved here in Iligan, it was hard for me to adjust to the slower life in the province. The slow pace often left me frustrated. Embroidery helped me learn how to tune out and adapt slow living.
Embroidery is a brain-boosting activity since it requires focus and preciseness. Following a pattern requires concentration and this brain exercise keeps the center of your nervous system agile and in tip top shape.
Helps Enhance Creativity
If you have ever called yourself an uncreative person in the past, embroidery is going to destroy that notion. With an embroidery kit for beginners, all you have to do is follow the pattern and colors. And as you gain the skill and mastery, you start exploring your creative side and the next thing you know, you’re creating your own masterpieces.

I felt so giddy when LoveCrafts reached out to me and asked if I would be willing to check out and try one of their Embroidery Kits, I was nodding my head in excitement as soon as I opened the email!

When you get a kit, it’ll come with everything that you’ll need for the project; thread, needle, fabric, hoop, and the design pattern so you can start right away!
