Embroidery is a time-honored hobby of leisure and relaxation.
You can use your skills to embellish your items, turning
them into personalized works of art. There are several embroidery
shops located throughout the land, and each one sells unique
patterns and bobbins.
To embroider, you will need to have several items. You need
an embroidery needle, a bobbin (that holds the thread) with
the color of your choice, a pattern, and a plain article
on. Embroidery pouches, sold in the shop, are good for this
purpose, as are store bought backpacks, since they are functional
but plain. You can work on cloth that is not armor, has a
special look, or serves a special function.
Because embroidery is a talent based on skill in Mechanical
Lore, your designs may come out sloppy when you begin.
So pick a pattern and piece to work on that is within your
and expect that practice will make perfect. Some patterns
are easier than others, so finding one that is good for your
talents may take some time.
Now that you have your basic materials, you can begin the
process. First you need to thread the needle. PULL your BOBBIN to
get some thread. You do not have to be holding the bobbin
to do this, as long as it is accessible, such as in an open
backpack or sack. Now, holding your needle, PUT the
THREAD ON the NEEDLE.
Once you thread the needle, you need to use the thread up
before you can change colors. Alternately, you can PULL the
NEEDLE to remove the yarn that is threaded, and toss it away.
Now you need to STUDY your PATTERN. There
are different levels of difficulty with patterns, and some
are easier to
study than others. Also, some patterns take longer to study
than others and some people may take longer at this process
than someone else studying the same thing, depending on your Scholarship skill.
Now that you have studied your pattern, put it away and
take up the item to be sewn. Now STITCH your item WITH your
NEEDLE. Make sure you stitch your item by name. If you are
working on a backpack, for instance, you need to indicate
that when you are embroidering.
You may find the pattern slips from your memory during the
course of stitching. If that's the case, just STUDY it again
and resume stitching.
Once you are done, look at it and you have your new embroidered
