The finish of the sheet that the embroidery is done on can be altered with the quality required. The embroidery in itself will be extremely regulated and one can even choose what size and quality one would like when choosing the custom embroidery on the specific sheet. 

  • Embroidery can be done Directly on Seams:

The various methods of art on cloth use the labour of hand and equipment to ensure that the art can be produced on the sheets. The embroidery on the sheets can be replaced with other designs, but the embroidery itself can be made on the seams itself, something that is not possible in other methods.

  • Produced from Various Artwork:

The embroidery on the cloth that you would like to purchase can be produced from various artworks, be it paintings, pictures of other embroidery designs or designs you have drawn yourself. This makes embroidery very flexible with the artists of the time and also for the customers.

The designs can be chosen and even the quality can be chosen for cost purposes. The embroidery that you would like to do on the sheets or the cloth can vary in quality depending on your budget. This ensures that you can get the design you want at your own budget.

  • Cloth Looks Beautiful:

The cloth in itself becomes extremely beautiful after the addition of the embroidery. This makes the embroidery of the cloth something that not only makes the art a very constant on sheets and cloth, but also one that can be used as gifts and for various invitations.

  • Long-Lasting:

The long lasting fragrance of the cloth can be only matched by the process of the embroidery itself. The embroidery that is designed on the various spaces of the sheets of the cloth, last over the years, withstanding all forms of tough washing and hard hand scrubbing.

The colours used in the process of embroidery are always vibrant and can be used as pleased. The colours do not wash off and keep making your home and your cloth look beautiful. This makes the art of embroidery one that is enjoyed by many. Embroidery hence is an art of durability.


  • Shades do not vary:

The variation of shades used in the process of embroidery may not vary. The shades may be used in the process of the original artwork, but the same thing cannot be said of the embroidery itself. This makes the process of embroidery one that loses the original shades of the colours. 

  • The Process Itself is Difficult:

The process of embroidery is one of the most difficult of art forms. This is because it requires immense concentration and the kind of skill that can only be attained over the years. This makes the art form quite costly as well. This is the reason embroidery is sometimes not affordable.

  • Not the Best on Waterproof Methods:

The process of embroidery is one that sits very well on cloth that is made out of cotton and other materials, but not one that sits well on the kind of cloth that is made out synthetic. This is also the case for waterproof materials.

  • Details are often not Fine:

The details of the embroidery are not always well cut out. This keeps the embroidery process out of the mainstream processes of art and craft. This is also one of the reasons that embroidery cannot be used for the process of making art that is based on fine pencil sketches.

  • Limitation on Colour Usage: 

The process of embroidery is also not very well used when making art or designs that have lots of colour on them. This makes the process of embroidery one that requires the artists to make original art that must have lesser marks of colour and shade.

  • Size of Embroidery Have to Be Restricted:

The process of embroidery is one that can be made on sheet or cloth that may be as big as is requires, but the embroidery is often restricted to the limitations certain size and shape restrictions. This is also a disadvantage when wanting to make life-size art.

  • End Product may vary:

The process of embroidery is well suited to the raft of the machine, but it cannot always guarantee that the end product will look exactly like the original artwork. This keeps the embroidery well adjusted to the fields of cloth design, but not very well suited for high precision art.


Embroidery is such a process that requires high precision and expression of thought. The original artwork must also be such that no inch is left undefined. The art form is one that can be kept for very long and can be used over the years and given as gifts to newly-wed couples.
