I find hand embroidery so calming and relaxing, but it can be hard to get your hands on all the supplies you need for it. Embroidery subscription kits will send everything you need every month so you don’t have to worry about picking your designs or searching for the right threads ever again.
I’ve made a list of the 10 best embroidery subscription boxes that I came across when I was looking to set mine up. They’re all pretty good value with worthwhile content for embroiderers at all levels – let’s take a look to find the best embroidery subscription box for you.

What is an embroidery subscription box?
To find the best embroidery subscription box, you need to be familiar with what it should be first.
An embroidery box is a monthly (or bi-monthly or quarterly) prepaid service for hand embroidery projects that is delivered straight to your front door.
You will receive full skeins of floss, a pattern and everything else you need to complete an embroidery project. Often you will receive a surprise item in the box.
What is the best embroidery subscription box?
I think the best monthly subscription service stitch kit is the Wimperis Embroidery Projects. You will learn so much more than just cross stitch as with some other kits.
Over time even a total beginner will master woven basket stitch, lattice stitch, backstitch, split stitch, satin stitch and chain stitch in their bimonthly subscription.
I also love the creative theme designs; such as the peacock chair and botanical terrarium embroidery kits.
Needlework and embroidery subscription boxes are perfect for those looking for supplies and new stitching projects. Hand embroidery can bring so much joy and is one of the best entry level crafting projects to get into!
Embroidery Boxes also make great gift deliveries to the address of someone you love who wants to try a new project from scratch.
