Embroidery is an art of decorating cloth with needlework using different types of threats to create fascinating designs. This form of work was generally free style in appearance. Embroidery can also be defined as an art of using stitches as an adorning feature by embellishing fabric or other material with designs, stitches in strands of threads on yarn using a needle.
The needle selection is crucial to the final result. The first needles were crafted from bone. In various forms, embroidery has existed since the production of fabric. Ancient embroidery was a sign of status. The first embroidery machines were invented in the early 1800s.
The person (male or female) who carried out this type of work was generally called an embroiderer. In contrast, during the medieval period the term needlework had referred to a piece of decorative work in which a linen ground was entirely hidden by stitches.
