Beautiful Machine Embroidery designs, many digitized for whole cloth quilts!
Welcome to Heirloom Stitches!

In 1985, Heirloom Stitches began as a mail order source for traditional Hand Appliquéd floral designs with the book Heirloom Appliqué. Since then we have published 6 more books, all floral designs.  In 2007, we created our first set of Machine Embroidery Appliqué designs from the book Heirlooms for Tomorrow.

We now provide designs for both Hand Appliqué and Machine Embroidery.




 Please review the quilting section for a full list of current publications.
