Best Embroidery Kits for Beginners 2020

Best Embroidery Kits for Beginners 2020


Learning how to stitch with an embroidery kit is one of the many arts and crafts worth learning during quarantine season, and ClassBento has some of the best embroidery kits for beginners available in Australia. Contrary to popular stereotypes, you don’t have to be a grandma to learn embroidery (although if you were looking for something for nanna, we also have classes for her too) and our craft kits for adults suit all ages, shapes and sizes. 

What else are you going to do? Sit at home in self-isolation, staring at the holes in your once-favourite jumper? Come on, at the very least, consider your options. We’ve compiled some of our top embroidery workshops and cross stitch kits for you to have a gander at and explore your creative side this quarantine season. 

Punch Needle Embroidery

We push this class like bankers pushed CDO’s before the 2007 collapse. Speaking of which, this is a fantastic opportunity to invest in Punch Needle Embroidery and the market will never crash on it! It’s fun, creatively freeing and one of the easiest ways to learn how to embroider. 

Perfect for beginners, punch needle embroidery is often described as “painting with thread” due to the amount of creative and colourful freedom you have straight out of the gate. Unlike other complicated embroidery techniques, punch needle employs a “thread pen” that allows you to move freely across the fabric you’re “painting” on. With our live stream, you’ll be shown all the tips and tricks to get you started creating your own unique fabric art. 

The embroidery kit that you’ll receive (delivered straight to your door of course) will contain enough yarn to complete the class and then some, but you can also order more yarn for an additional fee. You’ll also receive a non-slip embroidery hoop and monk cloth to get your design started on! This is one of our stand-out craft kits for adults as it’s not just one of the best embroidery for beginners, but also the most imaginative. 

Also, if you’re stuck in quarantine, this is a great little activity to practice while you’re sitting in front of the telly, or looking for something constructive to distract you from cleaning the kitchen. Punch needle embroidery really is as versatile as you want it to be.


Get To Know Your Sewing Machine

Learning how to embroider and stitch and just master the fabric, in general, is a hell of a lot easier when it’s automated. That’s why if you want to take it seriously, it’s worth investing in a sewing machine. But people do that, and then forget about their sewing machine altogether! It sits maligned; gathering the dust of intentions past in a cupboard at the back of a study somewhere wondering when it will ever feel your touch again. 

You have neglected a former passion but never removed it from your life. Oh, how passionate you were at the start, and how burnt by the flame your sewing machine was. But it’s never too late to reignite the spark. Don’t worry, you don’t have to take it out for dinner or anything (sewing machines don’t eat), but our sewing machine class will reacquaint you with your former flame. 

The accompanying embroidery kit will include enough fabric, threads and pins for you to truly return to your glory days. This craft kit and workshop is perfect for people who want to learn how to embroider… again. 

How To Weave At Home

This craft kit contains a loom, just get it already. How many people do you see that have a pop-up loom in their house? Not only will you live with the loom, but you can also work with it! You’ll learn how to master the ancient art of weaving without even having to return to Ancient Egypt, and the live stream will guide your hand like the pharaoh’s personal tailor. Learning how to embroider is one thing, but learning to weave on a loom is a rare treat normally reserved for seasoned fabric professionals.

You’ll be supplying your own yarn (or adding it onto the craft kit for an additional extra) but other than that, you’ll be shown how to make the most out of your loom, which comes included in the craft kits. Did we mention that? Yeah, you get a whole loom. This is a great craft kit for adults who want to dive into the deep end, and also own a loom. 


Sashiko Mending Class

Like we said: you’re not going to just sit at home and stare at the holes in your once-favourite jumper, are you? Sashiko mending is a Japanese style of stitching that actually adds character, strength and warmth to a garment instead of just repairing it. Considered the “kintsugi” of clothing repairs (just thought of that then, big points to me) you’ll be breathing new life into your ripped jeans, stretched jumpers, and torn tees with Sashiko mending.

Your cross stitch kit will also contain a book of patterns you can master in your own time, so you can really make the most of it. This is embroidery for beginners at its absolute finest; the wagyu sashimi of embroidery kits, if you will. Cheeky plug: Mari Yamada runs a series of other classes that are fantastic for expending your embroidery knowledge, as well as a live stream workshop on how to make a fabric face mask. Do your bit and learn how to make and embroider a face mask to protect both yourself and others during quarantine season. 

Learning how to embroider is a great way to help the time pass during self-isolation, but it also has heaps of benefits beyond a simple distraction. You can learn to repair garments, upgrade old ones, or own a loom like a medieval monastery. Our craft kits for adults will appease the Louis Vuitton within you and get you stitching, knitting and embroidering like a spinster pre-Industrial Revolution. And as much as you wouldn’t want to be them, having their embroidery skills is an enviable feat.
