Hi Everyone, Hope you are well and keeping cool....I have some exciting things to share with you all, mylovely new threads
and kits, and anyone who has not mastered Goldwork well, I have a new kit which includes everything you need to get started it's a Gold Work taster kit available for sale on the website oldmaidnew.com
I have also been researching some stitches for a project and came across this vintage article from a 1970 Embroidery Magazine, published in the summer of 1970 by Jennifer Walkinshaw. Its about a stitch called Ceylon stitch, in Elizabethan Embroidery on textiles, using metallic threads.
I thought I would share this with you, it's fascinating how various stitches used with metallic threads were created in the past. I have a range of metallic threads for sale on the website oldmaidnew.com, a good range of colours take a look.
enjoy your stitching...and new projects...
