When we at Embrilliance saw many of our Embrilliance embroiderers stuck at home, looking for ways to recognize those helping us stay healthy, safe, and supplied through crisis, we had to act. In order to help our stitchers say thanks, we started the ‘Stay Strong and Stitch On’ campaign, creating free projects, designs, and content to keep everyone happily stitching away at home.

With more than 25 offerings in the collection, we’re very proud of how the community has come together around creating these wonderful embroideries.  We’d love for you to join us and make your own #stitchonstaystrong creations.

SSSO #1: Heartbeat Heart Key Fob!

We started with the lovely heartbeat keyfob by Lisa Shaw and we can’t think of a better introduction to our campaign. This easy-to-stitch, customizable key fob design is ready to for you to create your own custom gift.

The person you give this monogrammable, memory-making fob will love it and you’ll love doing a kindness for someone who is working hard for their community.


This quick-stitching, in-the-hoop project can either be stitched blank or customized with your own initial using Embrilliance Essentials. We think this could be a nice way to say “thank you” or “I appreciate your sacrifice” to those in the medical, health or first responder sector. The project files and everything you need to make one for your favorite healthcare helper is available under the the ‘Download Project Files’ button below.
