Exceptional Embroidery: 33 Needlework Pieces We Adore

Austen-style on-point needlework is all the rage this season. These are the pieces and kits we love the most.

Embroidery is everywhere right now. It’s on patches, panels and insets sartorially speaking. It’s everywhere in interiors. And it’s on our to-do lists: embroidery kits have been having a prolonged moment since lockdown and, given the meditative and creative practice, we are eyeing up this Christmas as our time to get to grips with our needlework, Lizzie Bennet style. In the meantime, we’re coveting these on-point pieces.
