the-S box April has NOW SOLD OUT!
FAB HAB !!
Box no 34 : the-S box for April is focused on Haberdashery; this month, “S is for Sewing and Stitching”
We have teamed vintage pink shades such as tea-rose and blush with gorgeous florals and combined them with the natural textures of hessian, wood & cotton alongside nostalgic sewing motifs such as thread, scissors, mannequins and tape measures.
The-S box April is softly muted and gently faded or distressed with a traditional edge. Make time to sew and create.
Our Pick of the Month
Oh my, how much do we totally adore this mini embroidery hoop? – it’s just delightful !! We’ve given you a practice piece of linen as well as another to work with plus 6 colours of stranded cotton. Why not turn the finished embroidery into a necklace, hairclip or coat pin?
Celebrity Guest Edit
This month, we asked the talented and skilled embroidery designer and maker (and friend of the-Stitchery), Beth Power of Dotty Textiles* to create an example of what might look good worked inside this tiny hoop. Not only did she produce three beautiful works of art (see our blog), but she also gave us a breakdown of the colours and stitches she used ! (which we have included here in the box). Wow thank-you Beth!
