There are pictures and diagrams and instructions on
huundreds of embroidery stitches. I don't remember if
you're coming to Pennsic, but if you are, stop by
Herald's Point and say hi! My garb won't be
embroidered, but I can show you how to do satin stitch
and chain stitch!
I ran out of time to embroider... I'm stamping stuff!
If you're coming to the SIG party, take a look at my
lord's blue and yellow Kievan tunic (from Mordak's
description, thank you 'dak!), stamped and painted in
gold and black -- it came out REALLY nice. My stuff
will be stamped too; it just so happens that his is
done, so I can legitimately brag about it.
