Kit of the Month

The kit of the month for December is the Pendant Swirl kit. You do not need a special occasion to wear the pendant, I have received many a compliment wearing it to the grocery store and the post office.


Video Tutorials for the Pendant Swirl

There are 15 videos of the stitch process to make the pendant swirl which have very useful tips for sewing down felt, pearl purl and check purl which can be applied to other goldwork embroidery techniques.

Metal Threads for Hand Embroidery

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.

What my customers say about my kits

“I have wanted to do the fox for some time and found him to be one of my most enjoyable pieces to stitch”

Embroidered by Beryl Burnett in MB, Canada

 “There are some really unique thought processes you went through to figure out how to stitch him and have him look so real yet give him such character”

Embroidered by Cris Tilliss in CO, USA

“This was the first I did of Tanja’s patterns. It was amazing to see how blackwork gets without outlines. The explanations were very good and easy to follow.”

Embroidered by Sara Skaervik in Norway

“I loved working this bluebird and blossoms needlework kit. Since this was only my second needle painting project, the thorough and easy to follow instructions were a big help”

Embroidered by Stacey Tucker

“As a first time at Needle Painting, this took me a while to complete – but worth every stitch.”

Embroidered by Sheila McCoy in ON, Canada

“Tanja’s instructions are well written and easy to follow.  Because of this, I can no longer say I dislike goldwork!”

Embroidered by Wanda Paul in SK, Canada

“I just appreciated the opportunity to stitch the piece and learn how to incorporate blackwork in a non-traditional way.”

Embroidered by Nicole Gammie in NSW, Australia

“Excellent directions…quality materials, and more than enough to complete the project…the critique along the way was most helpful.”

Embroidered by Gertrude Myers in PA, USA

“What an interesting and satisfying project! I learned a lot and can’t wait to try the fur technique on another project that I have in mind.”

Embroidered by Margaret Cobleigh in CA, USA

 “The Carrickmacross Sampler is so well set up that once you complete the course samples you are prepared to do projects like the Quail”

Embroidered by Marion Brumwell in ON, Canada

“This was my first attempt with Blackwork. I fell in love with the piece the moment I saw it and had to give it a try. Looking forward to working on some more.”

Embroidered by Lyn Klaman in IL, USA
