A Little Needle Book – Summer’s Afternoon KIT
Needle Book Kit
This little needle book is just too precious for words and it’s a keeper!
I have designed a lovely needlebook kit for you with detailed instructions and step-by-step photography that will guide you well and it’s suitable for the beginner. It will be in e-book format so you can download it onto your computer or tablet. This way you will be able to zoom in on the photos to see close-up detail and if English is not your first language, you will be able to copy and paste paragraphs or sentences alongside the images into Google Translate. The links that I provide for the stitches will also take you directly to the stitches gallery on my website. Here is a screenshot of the step-by-step e-book that you will receive when we process your order. Suitable for the complete beginner.
The first batch kit will be ready to ship from 04 June 2021 or as soon as we can after that.
The second batch of kits will be ready to ship from 15 June 2021.
This is a lovely gift to make for yourself and for a special friend. The kit itself will make a lovely gift for a special embroidery friend.
The original artwork is by the talented artist, Kendra Binney from the US.

I love how this needlebook has a front and a back cover that is embroidered. Makes it a special piece.
