Why would it be any different than right handed embroidery? (You can see I'm not left-handed and know very little about embroidery.)

Dunster, because lefties do things backwards from righties, Instuctions are backward to the instincive way lefties do things. I'm left handed but sew with my right hand and cut with my left hand. I need a left handed ruler. I have to turn the ruler upside down to use it.

You should have no trouble with being left handed. I am also and never had a problem learning the fanciest stitches. Try this sight.

Take your time! If this is your first foray into stitching, remember, time and practice = improvements = satisfaction. Show us your plans!

peace

I am left handed and ordered a left-handed embroidery book and also a lh crochet book from Amazon. Big difference for us lefties! There are embroidery patterns that I had never dreamed of - and all left-handed. Enjoy!

If there is a photo of the stitches, I turn the book or page upside down to see the way things should look for us lefties.

I am left-handed, and when my first MIL was teaching me how to
crochet she had me sit in FRONT of her and have me to do everything
she did (it was like looking in a mirror so to speak).

Now here I am 35 years later and wishing I had learned more from her
and her mother about crochet and quilting.
