Poppy Machine Embroidery Kit - Kathleen Laurel Sage

Cutwork Poppy Workshop and Kit

Valerie recently went on one of Kathleen Laurel Sage’s workshops and  loved it.  That’s one of the reasons she chose this gorgeous Poppy Machine embroidery kit as our Product of the Month, because she hopes that you’ll enjoy it as much as she did. You can see the fruits of her labours in this blog post, Read Now+ 

You  can also hone your skills by watching Kathleen’s workshop on the site. Watch Now+.

The Kit itself comes complete with Organza, beads, and dissolvable fabric ready for you to create your own lovely panel. It’s great value as it comes with FREE p&p in the UK in July 2016 PLUS entry into a draw for 1 months FREE subscription. More Info+

And if you are a new addict of this work – there are some wooden shape cutouts in the shop that Valerie thinks could be converted and you could make an early start on Christmas! More Info+

The Strip Stick with Valerie Nesbitt

Strip Sticks –  Do you press your seams open or closed? For Valerie it depends on the project but the key word is PRESS (rather than iron!) and  in this FREE video, Valerie shares with you this great little gadget that allows you to press one seam at a time without distorting your fabrics and/or strips.   A variety of sizes so there is bound to be one idea for your project – it will be your new best friend!  Watch Now+
