  1. The long awaited Tiger blackwork kit is now available in the shop! Based on an original apprenticeship piece designed and stitched by myself, this Tiger is worked on 28 count Bantry (Quaker) linen and the kit comes with everything you need to work this piece including linen, needles, threads and very comprehensive instructions; consider it a lesson in a kit! Due to the complexity of the design, this kit is more suited to those with some experience of counted embroidery.

    If you need something a little simpler to get you going, cross stitch is a great place to start. You could try my new 'Red Rose' cross stitch kit or look out for some smaller cross stitch designs on their way soon!

  2. The Olympics and Paralympics is now over and the country is slowly returning back to normal. We've all seen the medals on the telly, but do you know what went into making them? It's fascinating, and involves over 1000 years of history and a very famous old London landmark but you'll have to go to my newsletter to find out more!  You can read it here.
