New Slow Stitch Pieces

Welcome back to the Thread and Fold blog where we bring you the bery latest in our handmade embroidery kits, embroidery wall art and our curated haberdashery of gorgeous items. It brings us enormous pleasure to dedicate this blog entry to our latest announcement - gorgeous new slow stitch pieces. 

If you are new to the world of slow stitching, let us recap what it is for you and why we love it so much. 

The idea behind slow stitching is to allow creativity to flourish and to focus on the method of sewing, an enjoyment of needlework rather than the outcome. Using simple hand stitching techniques and focusing on the enjoyment of the stitches and movement is the crux of slow stitching. 

All of our slow stitch kits offer a gorgeous, one-off selection of beautiful fabrics and threads provides the perfect starting point for a slow stitch adventure, consisting of 1 patterned fabric, 6 plain fabrics and 3 skeins of high quality DMC threads.

If you are brand new to embroidery, you will need an embroidery hoop, a needle and a sharp pair of scissors. Just pop in to our haberdashery section to get these bits and pieces and you will be ready to start stitching.
