This wonderful fine quality muslin fabric has a 205 thread count (regular muslin fabric thread count starts at 70) and makes an ideal ground fabric for needle painting and other forms of free form embroidery. I use the southern belle fabric in my needle painting kits.

The Southern Belle muslin fabric (Calico in European terms) is 100% cotton fabric and is light cream in colour.

This wonderful fine quality muslin fabric has a 205 thread count (regular muslin fabric thread count starts at 70) and makes an ideal ground fabric for needle painting and other forms of free form embroidery. I use the southern belle fabric in my needle painting kits.
The warp and weft threads are closely woven allowing for very precise stitching. The fabric is smooth to the feel, has no brown specks or slubs as in some muslins and has a very consistent weave unlike some broad cloths. There is very little stretch to the fabric so when pulled tight in a stretcher bar frame the fabric does not easily pucker and is firm enough to be used without a backing fabric.

The muslin fabric can be also used as a supporting fabric for the Goldwork and silk fabric embroidery projects.

The fabric comes to me on a bolt and sometimes there are crease marks in the fabric from being wrapped on the bolt. These creases come out easily after the fabric has been washed in hot water and ironed on cotton heat.

The fabric also may have some small fault lines in it (grey fine lines about 1/2 and inch long) which are part of the manufacturing and I cannot avoid.

Width of the Fabric: 44 inches (110 cm)

KAI 4 inch hand embroidery scissors are the perfect all purpose hand embroidery scissors. They have sharp pointed blades and are light weight with comfortable molded handles.

The KAI scissors are made in Japan out of professionally honed stainless steel. I personally have a pair of these scissors that I have used for many years in lots of needlework techniques including cutting metal threads for goldwork and they have maintained their sharpness.

The Long and Short Stitch Embroidery book has a nice collection of flowers to embroider in the needle painting technique. The book does not have diagrams on how to stitch each petal and leaf of the flowers like you will get when you purchase one of my needle painting kits but it is a good book if you have worked a few of my designs and are now familiar with the technique and would like some more flower designs to stitch.

The magni-clips are magnifiers that clip onto the bridge of your glasses, they can be flipped up when not in use and put down over your glasses for close up work.

The magni-clips are light weight and rimless so as not to distract from your stitching. Excellent for all types of hand embroidery and close up work.

If you do not know the magnification that you require I suggest trying out different reading glasses over your current glasses to find out the magnification that you require.
