Embroidery is the age old art or handicraft of decorating fabric or other materials with designs stitched in strands of thread or yarn using a needle. Embroidery also may incorporate other materials such as metal strips, pearls, beads, quills, and sequins. Machine embroidery is created by using a specialized machine that can read a computerized design to automatically create a stitched design.
