  • These snippy little scissors are exactly what you need in your sewing basket!

    These embroidery scissors are sharp enough to snip right through those pesky threads, and with a handle bright enough that you won’t lose them!

    Available in 2 colours, pick these up here or in the shop in Exeter.

  • These wooden shapes are made for cross stitchers! Each pendant is covered with holes for you to let your imagination run wild in – I loved filling in one of the hearts with all different shades of pink & red…

    There’s 3 shapes to choose from – a heart, an oval or a circle. We recommend using 3 strands of embroidery thread and embellishing anything you like – how about someones name, or some fabulous geometric patterns? Each shape comes with a hole at the top for you to thread some lovely ribbon or string through.

    Measurements:

    Heart: 80mm x 75mm
    Oval: 60mm x 80mm
    Circle: 70mm x 70mm

    Because of the way in which these are made you may notice some slight dark markings or discrepancies in colour. Most of these will be covered by your stitching, and we think it adds to their charm anyway!

    The price shown is for one shape.

  • This lovely hand packed kit comes with everything you need to make 2 metres of super cool bunting – just add your sewing machine!

    Inside the box you’ll find fabric triangles cut out of 100% cotton fabric, 2 metres of bias binding, and all the instructions you need.

    Our patterns and colours change as our stock does, so you might not receive exactly what you see in the photos. The bias binding will always be lovely and bright and wonderfully matching to your triangles! Fabrics tend to be floral, spotty, or checked, (and they’re always beautiful!) If you’re after something in particular, please get in contact.

  • These embroidery thread bundles are the perfect accompaniment to our Zenbroidery kits!

    Each bundle contains 10 skeins of thread – we currently stock 2 brands: duchess and trimits. All of the skeins are 6 strands of 100% cotton thread and 8 metres long.

    There’s 4 colour bundles to choose from! These are:

    Summer Brights: All of our most colourful and bold threads – think bright yellows, pinks and greens!
    Autumn Vintage: A more subtle palette of soft blues, greens, deep reds and matching pastels.
    Winter Freeze: A gorgeous mix of snowy whites and creams, with added cold blues, greys and deep reds.
    Spring Pastel: Lovely light pinks, lilacs and mint!

    All of our mixes vary depending on what we have in the shop so may be different to what you see in the photos, but we promise they will always be a lovely mix of co-ordinating threads in the theme you’ve chosen.

    If you’d like something customised just for you send us a message and we’ll see what we can do!

  • Happy Owl Kit

    £5.00

    Because we change our stock fairly regularly (it’s good to keep things fresh!) you might find that the colours you get may vary from what’s shown in the photos. Just pick a colour scheme and we’ll make sure you get everything to that theme – and they’ll be lovely no matter what!
