Embroidery is the art of decorating fabric or other materials using a needle to apply thread or yarn. This technique involves stitching patterns and designs directly onto the material, creating raised and textured embellishments. Embroidery is often used for personalizing garments, such as shirts, hats, and jackets, with logos, names, or intricate designs. It is valued for its durability, professional appearance, and the tactile quality it adds to the items being decorated.
