Jean Hilton was a very popular and prolific designer, and has gained recognition as one of the top Canvas Embroidery designers in the US. She developed many of her own stitches that are fun to learn and fun to do. We decided to include on this page pictures of some of the framed pieces done by local stitchers. Unfortunately, the pictures do not do justice to the actual pieces but you can at least get an idea how spectacular these look when completed.
If you want to go straight to the Jean Hilton Books and Designs, please select a link below:- (a sample of each series is shown)

Some time ago we had a class using the Hilton Sampler book so the local stitchers could learn many of the stitches then go and do the other Hilton designs with a large degree of confidence. The book is quite complete. One of the ladies got so excited she jumped ahead and finished the sampler before the second class. That is, you don't need a class to do the sampler. Below are some of their "in process" pieces. We wanted to include these because we were amazed at the variety of colors and "looks" the different stitchers came up with.
