We stock a wide range of hand embroidery threads and silk ribbons including DMC, Anchor, Di van Niekerk, St Leonettes, House of Embroidery, Chameleon, Raj Mahal and Madeira as well as kits, prints and habby.
Come and enjoy a morning or afternoon with us for our regular weekly embroidery lessons or join us on one of our hand craft workshops. Our classes include Jacobean, Hardanger and ribbon embroidery, mosaicing, under glass decoupage, applique quilting, knitting and crocheting.
Sue and her right hand lady Lisah, are on hand to help you choose that perfect colour thread or ribbon, show you how to do that tricky stitch that you're battling with or just for a chat.
Lisah is an awesome ribbon emboiderer having spent many years under the guidance of Di van Niekerk and several of her completed works have pride of place on our walls at the shop.
Sue is skilled in many needle crafts and other handcrafts. She is a very patient teacher who has a eye for detail and is a whiz at choosing colours to complement any design and can always be relied of for good ideas. Some of her stunning completed pieces as well as current works in progress can be see adorning the walls (and tables).
Teachers Colleen Goy (Roseworks) and Izette Smith (Hardanger embroidery) complete our very talented team.
