Once threaded, the embroidery needle can be used to embroider a small amount of text on an item of clothing (or a special linen square). The text will appear in the language you are currently speaking and so you need to be proficient in it.

If you have an embroidery pattern book you can embroider a pattern on an item of clothing. The book must be open to the page you wish to embroider from and a number of threads may be required to complete the pattern.

Only certain materials can be embroidered on. If you make a mistake you can remove the embroidery with an unpicker.

Embroidering uses the skill crafts.materials.needlework and helps with embroidering patterns.
