Embroiderer

An embroiderer is a man who designs and stitches an embroidery. The female equivalent is an ‘embroideress'. By the end of the twentieth century, the term embroiderer was often used for either a man or a woman. At the same time the word embroiderer also means someone who creates a piece of art (rather than a functional item), using one or more embroidery techniques.
