Hi I’m Tanja Berlin and I design hand embroidery kits for other embroidery enthusiasts to stitch. I also sell hand embroidery supplies, needlework threads such as goldwork / metal threads and needlework tools that I use myself so I can testify to their quality.
I continue to process orders during the Covid-19 Corona Virus outbreak – please see details
I can not guarantee that orders will arrive by Christmas, if you are interested in purchasing gifts I suggest Gift Certificates
Please keep safe and stay well, Tanja and the Fluffies.

Registration for the Acorn Woodpecker Online Class Open
Learn how to stitch the fine, realistic woodpecker embroidery. The online class is suitable for all levels of stitchers.
The online class runs from Friday 5th of February until Friday 30th of April – I have changed the start date from the one in the November email newsletter so there is more time for the class kit to arrive in the mail.
Video Tutorials for the Pendant Swirl
I have made 15 videos for the pendant swirl stitch process and finishing. These are manageable length videos with all the information that you need for making the pendant.
You can purchase the video tutorials to go with the Pendant Swirl Kit or purchase on their own if you already have the kit or if you just want to learn the process of making a pendant.
The tips that I give in the videos can be applied to other goldwork embroidery designs. The videos cover how to sew down felt, many tips and tricks for sewing down pearl purl as well as sewing down check purl thread.
I supply a wide range of hand embroidery metal threads for goldwork embroidery in gold, silver and copper: Bullions, Check Thread, Flatworm, Gimp Cords, Grecian Twist, Jaceron, Japanese Threads, Licerine, Lurex, Milliary Wire, Passing Threads, Pearl Purl, Plate, Purl Threads, Rococco, Spangles, Tambour, Twisted Threads.
I am discontinuing Gold 2% WM Metal threads as the cost of the wire to make the threads has gone up by 40%. If you are a fan of the gold 2% threads I have threads available but once sold I will not be bringing in the threads again.
The gold 2% threads have 2% gold in the plating where as the gilt threads have 0.5% gold in the plating so the gold 2% threads tend to be a darker gold in appearance.
