The Goldwork Sampler is a great design for learning how to use different metal threads.

The goldwork sampler features four designs worked in metal threads ranging from easy to hard. I designed the sampler to use a lot of the different metal threads that are available.

If you purchase the sampler kit(s) from my website I am offering free on-going critique…..you can email me at any time if you have questions or would like me to critique your embroidery.

Gold 2% WM means that there is 2% gold in the plating on white metal (silver plated copper). The gilt threads have 1/2% of gold in the plating. Both types of thread tarnish as the metals are copper based and oxidize over time when exposed to light and the elements. Display the embroidery in a dark location with no direct natural or artificial light to slow down the rate of tarnishing.

Please visit the Metal Thread Information page for FAQS on goldwork/metal threads.
