Projects you won’t find in any of our books or magazines.

Handpicked is a collection of new projects available exclusively as individual patterns.

Our latest Handpicked project is ‘Elizabeth in Repose’ by Betsy Morgan, an unusual vertical band sampler featuring a variety of classic motifs.

Turning the traditional band sampler layout 90 degrees, Betsy has gathered together a collection of her favourite motifs and stitched them onto cream linen with her favourite stitches and threads.

The bands of stitching include luscious strawberries, acorns and oak leaves, various flowers and charming figures interspersed between rows of colourful Bargello, a twirling blue ribbon and whitework.

Stitched with hand-dyed Gloriana silk threads, the sampler is anchored at one end with a spectacular floral motif featuring a rose, yellow heartsease and acorns.

The instructions for ‘Elizabeth in Repose’ are now available to purchase as a printed pattern which we’ll post to you anywhere in the world, or you can buy it as a digital pattern to download instantly.
