  6. Deepa ,I am also interested in different types of Indian embroidery, having a collection of it. But searching the net for learning Badla embroidery work which is too common in Bangalore. I am residing out of India. Hope you can post the same. It will be of great help. Wish you all the success.

  7. Deepa, I am so pleased to see your blog... I am a Radar Engineer by profession but Embroidery is my interest(though I cannot do as well as your work) but I keep trying to do better... Your blog is quite a source of inspirational lessons.. Normally, I avoid posting comments on blogs I refer but for this one, I am highly impressed with your work!! Great blog!! Thanks for sharing it with all of us!!!

  9. Ma'am i have appreciated your blog for a couple of years now and recently started dabbling in a bit of hand embroidery as well. I would like to make a wall hanging for my home and was wondering how to go about it...for eg, what material should i be using, should i get it framed, etc. please do get back to me if you have any suggestions for the same.

  10. Nekta,

    For a beginner,I would suggest casement fabric which is usually used for quilt covers.The fabric is sturdy.Cotton is also a good choice.Make sure that you wash the fabric to remove the starch..Embroidered wall hangings usually are framed since they tend to gather dust over time.But it is entirely your choice.
    Hope this helps,
