All That Glitters

With Hedgehog Needleworks closing so the owner can retire, goldwork stitchers need places to buy goldwork threads and supplies.  Golden Hinde Goldwork, an English company, is ready to fill that gap.  Since I think of New Year's as a time of sparkle and glitter, it seems appropriate to visit their online shop and learn a bit about goldwork today.

Once you read the history, click on Shop to see the wonders the shop sells.  Don't miss 3 Ply Twists in the Threads section.  These are tiny metallic braids, very beautiful as a special touch on your embroidery. Couch them around an angel's halo, use them as Santa's coat trim, or decorate a Christmas tree or swag with these beauties.

Happy New Year!  Here's to many beautiful threads in our future!

  1. I have both the regular & Baby Z frames. Excellent product, as it folds almost completely flat with stretcher bars attached, and easy access to the back for finishing off. Works right- or left-handed. I've used up to 11" square Qsnaps & stretchers on the Baby without tipping.

  2. I'm going to update the article on frames with your insight. Thanks again!
