Projects you won’t find in any of our books or magazines.
Handpicked is a collection of new projects available exclusively as individual patterns.
With each project handpicked for its beauty, originality and uniqueness, all our patterns come with our trademark world’s most beautiful photography, comprehensive instructions, detailed step-by-step images, plus a full list of required threads and materials.
Our latest Handpicked project is ‘Lotus’ by Margret Lee, a superb box insert design of a stylised flower.
Worked onto dark brown silk taffeta with a combination of gold and silver threads, the shimmering metal thread embroidery is enhanced with outlines and decorative bands of intricate beading, echoing the colours and sparkling surface of the stitches.
In contrast to the heavily stitched and beaded motif, the background is filled with an even scattering of brown iris metallic beads in two sizes.
