Bird collages are among the most popular designs at Embroidery Library. The designs focus on bird form, and show it in three different poses. Past offerings include the American Kestrel, Macaw, Cardinal, and Eastern Bluebird.

Sue and Linda both wrote in to request a collage featuring the Bald Eagle. It's long been a symbol of the United States, and appears on many official seals. Embroidery Library is rooted in Minnesota, and we're fortunate to have many of these majestic birds in our neighborhood.
