Learn to embroider. It's as easy as...
My first embroidery project is now on display!
This was my first embroidery project, so I was grateful for the helpful "how to" that came along with the kit. I also knew that I could reference the Penguin and Fish YouTube videos for assistance. The videos were SUPER helpful. I am a visual learner, so being able to see how to do something, stop and pause the video where I felt stuck was super helpful in allowing me to understand the flow of embroidery. I learned a lot of useful tips.
I had so much fun, I got lost in the project and was eager to finish! I did my kit on a tea towel that I purchased from Penguin and Fish and gave it to my Mom as a gift, she is hanging it at the house next to her tea cups and saucers on display. Thank you for making my first attempt at embroidery fun and approachable!

Simple, Easy, and Enjoyable
Before coming to Penguin & Fish I did a little embroidery and sewing to make quilts and made a few purses.
I can't remember exactly when I came across Penguin & fish site but I kept coming back because I learned better ways of doing embroidery stitches. I learned new stitches from Alyssa [owner of Penguin & Fish] who made it simple and easy and enjoyable. I am willing to tackle more difficult patterns, And I do a lot more.

My relaxing time with embroidery
I am a 57 year old retired lady who has found a new passion for embroidering thanks to your easy to follow patterns. Previously, I had embroidered as a young adult but hadn’t kept up with any crafts while I was working and otherwise “busy” with life.
I first found out about Penguin and Fish while I was looking for instructions and patterns for face masks during the start of COVID. I made several masks thanks to your videos.
I continued to shop your website and am enjoying the monthly flower patterns that I make and give mostly as gifts.
I am back to being “busy” with life but I hope that with winter coming up, I will once again get caught up on my relaxing time with embroidery!

Hi! Alyssa here.
I love making things. I learned how to crochet doilies sitting next to my grandma and made my first quilt with my mom. As an illustrator, I've designed fabric, illustrated a children’s book, and created greeting cards. Now I love to turn my drawings into embroideries!

I have a least one or more pairs of these in EVERY embroidery project. & i even have them in my crochet projects, Love the colors, too.
A perfect pattern for me, as a beginner in embroidery. The free videos included along with the written instruction are fantastic. Makes you feel you can try more complicated patterns.
Lovely. Great gift to include with a book for someone who reads a lot! Like me
Love all of the monthly patterns easy to do and great for anyone at any level of embroidery stitching. Instructions are very easy and it’s a project that you can do quickly. Love all of the kits at penguin and fish, you have everything you need in each kit - so worth it!!
It’s convenient, keeps everything for my project together and is pretty to look it!
Best pen for transferring pattern and great use in my quilting, etc projects
Just Love it
I embroidered mine on a white sweatshirt and plan to give as gifts!!!! I love this pattern and I love Penguin and Fish!!!!
I love this frame. It holds my embroidery snuggly and doesnt make me have to tighten it all the time.
Easy download , hoping to teach myself some basic embroidery stitches for an upcoming project and this is proving really helpful.
We ordered two sets; One for my daughter, one for myself, and we both love it. Such a cute way to lear the stitches. And, the packaging was adorable
After received this Garden embroidery kit, I was happily surprised by the quality of the products. It came with detailed instructions, easy to follow and it helps to refreshed some stitches I learned before. I am very happy with this product and will recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning embroidery.
I love ur floss I’ve tried others so far yours is the best I’ve found I have used so much of it I’m running short I love everything u made so much I hope I can keep ordering from you thank u for the work u do
Have really enjoyed this project! It is a gift for a friend who loves hummingbirds! Your packaging & order acknowledgment on the kits I’ve ordered are much appreciated! Keep up the great work!! Thank you!!
I just love Penguin And Fish. I ordered the kit of the month AND these scissors AND the needle minder. The order went smoothly and the shipping was fast. I love watching the YouTube channel. It feels like I'm in the company of fellow stitchers with fun conversation.
This needle minder is sooo cute!! And I love that it is rounded, no corners for my floss to get caught on. It is the perfect minder for my needle when working on embroidery projects!
