I hope you are keeping well? I have been working on some new designs and ordering in new stock, so it has been a busy time. My mind is in creative mode which is not always a good thing for my family who suffer the consequences such as forgetting I have put the supper in the oven and no matter how hard I try to persuade them that “crispy” is good they don’t buy it!
This week I am delighted to let you know that there is now a small collection of embroidery kits available in the shop. As you know I discontinued kit production a few years ago, as I am the sole owner of my business and there is not enough time in the day to do it all and also because it is so difficult to get stocks of the thread needed for each kit. I am sure every embroidery designer can attest to this?
However, this year I have been working on some monochrome designs which only use a few shades, so I have decided to make these available as kits. Unfortunately, there is a world wide shortage of DMC embroidery thread due to the manufacturers going out of production during the Covid quarantine so I have only managed to put together a limited stock of kits for now, but the threads are on order and hopefully will arrive early next year.
Each kit includes everything you need to complete the project, all you need is a hoop. My daughter has just finished her final school exams so she was employed to press and overlock each piece of linen and compile the kits. Each piece of fabric has the design outline printed on and you will find a printed instruction booklet, embroidery essentials, needles and a pack with all the threads needed, as shown. You will also find a spool of sewing thread for those fine outlines.
There are three kits in the collection:
This is a starter kit for those who would like to learn Needlepainting embroidery or for those who would like to develop their skills.
A ROSE IS A ROSE IS A ROSE
This classic design is suitable for those moving on from beginner who have a little previous experience in Needlepainting.
This project is suitable for those who have previous experience in Needlepainting and want the pure joy of stitching such a beautiful design.
You can find more details on each one in the Shop.
Till next time, wherever you are in the world, keep smiling and happy stitching.
