At NeedleThread Designs, we love all things fabric and thread, especially hand embroidery. As embroiderers and tutors, we know how difficult it is to find patterns and kits, classes and supplies. So we have opened our one-stop-shop for stitchers in the hope that it will encourage experienced embroiderers to try new techniques and inspire beginners to pick up their needles to have a go.
Spring is here so what better time to settle down with a new project. We have a range of kits which are ideal as presents. We have something for beginners and experienced stitchers, including a pretty blue aquilegia design using a mix of Victorian beading and canvas stitches. Most designs are available as a pdf pattern and as kits.
In addition to patterns and kits, we are now stocking some Elbesee frames and a selection of tools and accessories. These include charming needle minders which make ideal gifts. We are always on the lookout for new and useful tools, so will be adding more as we find them.
There will also be a new range of patterns and kits available soon. These include some lovely Victorian Beading projects, new canvas work designs and pretty stumpwork gardens. We may have been quiet but we have been busy! We will update the 'news' section above as they are ready and details will be available in our shop.
Thank you to all of you who attended our classes last year. They were great fun. We are presently working on classes for 2017 and further details will be made available on our Classes page.
Finally, we will be adding more basic techniques and finishing touches to give ideas and instructions for projects which can be made from your embroidery in the near future. We are also available for talks and workshops if invited.
Follow us on Facebook to see how we are progressing with new designs, classes and future projects.
