February already!
It's been a busy time, I can't believe January has come and gone so soon! We have been busy stocking up the shop with our new exiting range of goldwork coloured purls so if you haven't seen these yet, then pop over and have a look now; we have some beautiful colours in a range of smooth purls, bright checks and wire checks as well as some new pearl purls to, so lots to get the creative juices going! Here's some of our new range:

A sneak preview of my new sampler using some of the new purls, items already in stock and some new ones coming soon!

Class bookings for my three day drawing and design class with Caroline Homfray at the Royal School of Needlework are selling out fast but there are a few places left on the second class on the 5th-7th July (March class sold out) so get in quick! This is a wonderful opportunity to take the next step and learn how to design your own pieces of embroidery, we would love to see you there.
We are also able to release another set of materials packs for our distance learning class 'Love, Sin and Morality' so if you haven't had chance to enroll on this yet you now can! You can work on it whenever you like with help from me whenever you need it. Check out the link below for all of the details.
Goldwork in action!
We send gold metals and threads out every day, but we very rarely see what becomes of it so it was fantastic to help Sarah Wallin, Shinji Costumes out with some gold purls and see the results of over 275 hours of work on this rather stunning outfit!

Detail of the goldwork; techniques Sarah has used include cutwork, s-ing and plate:

If you like goldwork (and amazing tailoring!) Sarah has some wonderful in-progress pictures on her Facebook and Instagram accounts so do check her out, and all her other amazing costumes!
