The origins of embroidery can be found to the Warring States period in China (500-300BC) and to Sweden’s Migration period (300-700AD), and some would disagree that it hasn’t changed much over the centuries:

“It is a striking fact that in the growth of embroidery … there are no changes of materials or methods which can be felt or interpreted as advances from a primitive to a later, more refined stage. On the other hand, we often find in early works a technical accomplishment and high standard of craftsmanship rarely attained in later times” (The Art of Embroidery, 1964).

But today needle and thread pioneers beg to differ. here is the list of the best and most creative embroidery to prove that while the ancients were good, nothing holds a thimble to what these modern masters can accomplish!
