Welcome!

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.

Berlin Embroidery Designs will be closed from Friday 19th of July until Monday 29th of July. During this time I will not be able to reply to emails, return telephone calls or process orders. I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Kit of the Month

Blackwork Butterfly Kit

The blackwork butterfly is for all levels of embroiderers with the instructions written with the beginner in mind with lots of diagrams and detailed instructions for each stage of the embroidery. The butterfly is a great introductory to technique of realistic blackwork as an art form.

There is the option of purchasing 3 PDF files with colour work-in-progress photos that I took when stitching the butterfly. You do not have to have the PDF files to work the butterfly as the instructions that come with the kit are excellent, but the PDF files are useful if you are new to counted thread embroidery and if you would like a well rounded learning of the technique.

There is a choice of fabric for the embroidery. View Kit Details.

New Hand Made Needle Minder

I have some unique needle minders worked in metal thread embroidery for sale that I have designed and stitched myself – Tanja Berlin.

These would make a special gift or a personal tool that you can enjoy every day.

Due to the technical nature of assembling the needle minder that requires very strong adhesive for the magnets (which will make, making your own needle minder costly) I have not at this time written instructions for the needle minder.

One of a Kind Pendants for Sale

I have a selection of hand made pendants for sale.

Each pendant is unique in colouring and hand made by myself and is of the highest quality.

The pendant makes a great personal gift and works well with all type of clothing for formal or casual occasions.

I often wear my pendants and get numerous flattering comments on the uniqueness of the pendant.

What my customers say about my kits
