10 Gifts to spoil your favorite stitcher

Let’s face it, stitchers deserve to be spoiled. If you're looking to get your favorite stitcher (or yourself!) something special, look no further. Here are gifts any cross stitcher, hand embroiderer, or other needleworker will covet.

1. Premium hard wood embroidery hoops

Think all embroidery hoops are the same? Think again. These gorgeous hard wood hoops from Germany are the best you will find. Finely crafted from beech wood, these polished hoops are perfectly smooth, with no gaps or snags, and the edges are rounded for a super comfortable grip. They are available in both round and square shapes.

8. Dovo embroidery scissors

Most cross stitchers already have a favorite pair of embroidery scissors (not that most of us wouldn't mind more), but these scissors are different. At 5-inches, they are a bit larger than other embroidery snips, and with a wide short blade, they are perfect for cutting embroidery thread, yarn, and fabric. Made in Germany using old world techniques, these scissors will last a lifetime and are a pair to treasure.
