Pre-Order: Snippet Roll Kits A Collaboration with Homespun with Love

80.00

This is a pre-order item for despatch in the second week of August. The very best thing about The Stitchery is the amazing people that I have met; all of us like-minded and passionate about the same things. I was delighted when Sue of Homespun with Love asked if I would like to work with her on a Snippet Roll kit; I love everything that Sue makes and we share a passion for antique textiles. Her ‘thread bears’ are very popular and instantly recognisable on social media.

People have been making snippet rolls for a long time to display favourite or special fabrics and practise stitches; they are basically a long strip of fabric onto which you embellish and stitch into. The fabric wraps around a bobbin or similar item and hangs on a wall.

Our snippet rolls use an old wooden bobbin with a length of pure silk for hanging. The antique linen is approximately 100cm long and 15cm wide with an antique lace trim.

Sue and I have both stitched our own designs for the snippet roll and each kit includes a small packet of fabric ‘snippets’ to get you started, four screen printed embroidery designs, a few embroidery threads and a small packet of paper ephemera which you may wish to include. There are no set instructions on how to stitch the snippet roll because the idea is that you work it whichever way you fancy, in your own style. However, Sue and I have created a little booklet with suggested themes, stitches and techniques that you might use to create your own piece of work. Of course there are also four screen printed patches that you can use for embroidery and attach to the snippet roll.

Due to the antique nature of the materials, these kits are limited edition.
