Dating as far back as the 5th Century BC, Embroidery is the art of decorating fabrics with a needle and thread or yarn. Embroidery is a distinguished and useful skill which takes practice, patience and diligence. Embroidery is often used for adorning clothing and household items with beautiful, intricate results. You do not require many tools to begin an Embroidery project, just a needle, thread and a hoop will often suffice. However, we stock a variety of specialist tools designed to make your Craft projects as simple and successful as possible.
The spring Embroidery hoop can be used for hand Embroidery but is particularly useful for machine Embroidery as it fits easily under the machine needle and keeps fabric taut but without pulling. Wooden Embroidery hoops hold fabric more tautly than spring hoops and are ideal for any of your cross stitch or hand Embroidery projects. The Embroidery thread winder is a useful little tool for wrapping your thread around bobbins in order to keep your collection of threads neat and organised and can be used alongside our Embroidery thread organiser which comes with 40 bobbin cards. We also stock a variety of Embroidery kits which are ideal for gifts.
