  • Embroidery thread: Embroidery thread is available in a wide variety of colors and weights. For most projects, you'll want to use a medium-weight thread.
  • Needle: The type of needle you use will depend on the weight of the fabric and thread you're using. For most projects, you'll want to use a sharp needle with a medium-sized eye.
