  1. There is now an extensive range of goldwork supplies in my shop. Just added are:

    Tweezers, mellors, soft string, yellow felt and scissors:

    Curved tweezers   Mellor point 

    yellow soft string

    Yellow felt   Milanese scissors

    Don't forget your actual gold! I have Japanese thread, checks, pearl purl, rococco and coloured purls and you'll be needing that beeswax and one of those velvet boards too! Look out for coloured Japanese thread coming soon....

  2. Cotton Herringbone Tape is now available again in the shop! Use this tape when you frame up an embroidery slate or rollerframe, to enable you to pull your fabric super tight. Don't forget to use a bracing needle (new stock just arrived) to string up your frame! Tape available by the metre, bracing needles singly. Buy both here!
