There’s still time to sign up for our very first Home-Sewn Weekend! In addition to meeting and working with our amazing special guests, you’ll also be stitching up three Modern Domestic exclusive projects!
For years, I have had the same rather boring stockings that haven’t quite expressed my love for Christmas decorating. This year I made a promise to myself and to everyone here at MD that I would make new embroidered stockings for everyone in my family (including the dog and cat!).
I’ve been busily (and secretly) working on some spring-time projects. The weather outside is not cooperating with this frame of mind but I have powered through. These will eventually serve as inspiration for tutorials, projects, classes, free mini-classes, and more! I’ve been especially trying to incorporate machine embroidery into everyday home dec items – not … Continued
Want a quick way to decorate for the upcoming autumnal and holiday season? Choose a winsome phrase or snarky image, embroider, and simply display in an embroidery hoop. I keep finding things to machine embroider and this is a great way to rotate seasonally. These look swell alone or in groupings. We’re carrying embroidery hoops … Continued
We are getting really excited about machine embroidery here at MD! In all honesty, if you would have asked us how we felt about it a year ago, we would have turned up our noses. How wrong we were!

You may have seen my little love-fest a bit back on our blog about machine embroidery. My love has not diminished! I just recently got a mention on the Apartment Therapy’s blog re-nest for that very first exploration. It’s so true, clean well-thoughtout design is timeless. I’ve been plotting (and playing) and discovering new ways to … Continued

We would just love to say a special thank you to all of our wonderful customers and friends for a delightful first year. We will have our free monogram mini class (which is full) but even … Continued
If you had asked me two days ago how I felt about machine embroidery, I could have gone on and on about how uninspired, perfectly executed (in a bad way), and completely against my general aesthetic it is. Full of disdain for the travesity in which it is. Ask me about it now. I dare you. … Continued
