GOLDWORK SAMPLER KITS

Goldwork or Gold Embroidery is a 3-dimensional form of hand embroidery which involves sewing down felt or string as padding and then applying gold threads over the top. Goldwork gives the impression of being very technical but, in fact, is just a system of simple embroidery techniques worked in a certain order creating beautiful results.

The History of Metal Thread Embroidery  |  Glossary of Metal Threads

Some of the materials used have a small percentage of gold in their structure and may tarnish over time. If you are interested in purchasing, Gold, Silver and Copper metal threads separately, visit Goldwork Supplies.

I also provide the metal threads and fabrics required for the Goldwork Projects in the Royal School of Needlework Embroidery Technique Book which can be purchased individually or in kit form.
