Special Request of the Week

Embroidery Library is always inspired by your design suggestions, and we thank you for sending us tons of terrific ideas, which we regularly incorporate into the weekly design themes. This space is dedicated to the "Request of the Week."

This week's request for the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse comes from Norma, who loves the sea, sailing, and lighthouses. The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse is located in Jupiter, Florida, on the north side of Jupiter Inlet. Built on an Indian shell mound, the lighthouse was completed in 1860, and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. Thanks for the bright idea, Norma!
