Welcome to my Website!

Hi I’m Tanja Berlin and I design hand-embroidery kits for other embroidery enthusiasts to stitch. I also supply needlework threads and tools that I use myself so I can testify to their quality.

Free Instructions for the Holly Embroidery

The holly is a great design for learning how to do 2-sided (reversible) embroidery, in which the back looks like the front.

I provide the instructions for free in the form of a PDF file with 13 pages of diagrams and instructions for working the holly.

Kit of the Month – Shadow Work Forest Kit

I am offering the shadow work forest kit at a discounted rate during December.

The shadow work forest embroidery is worked in bands of herringbone stitch at the back of the silk organza fabric that show through at the front as a shadow of colour. 

The embroidery can be displayed as a 2-sided embroidery but it is in a different technique than the holly 2-sided embroidery.

What my customers say about my kits

“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 Gertrude Myers in PA, USA

Embroidered by Nicole Gammie in NSW, Australia

“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

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