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 Pembroke Welsh Corgi sketch request comes from Sharon. She is a fan of the breed, renowned for being the British Royal Family's breed of choice for many years (Queen Elizabeth has owned more than 30 during her reign), as well as their agreeable and friendly personalities. Highly intelligent, corgis are excellent working dogs, as well as loyal and affectionate pets. Thank you, Sharon, for recommending this noteworthy dog!
