to X-Calibre Designs and thanks for popping in. We
may have met before
at a needlework show or at one of my workshops, if
so, nice to see you
again. If we haven’t met in person, I hope that
during your time here
you will learn a bit about
me, Carol Leather, and what I love to do.
PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE SHUT UNTIL
AUGUST 10TH. YOU CAN PLACE AN ORDER, BUT
WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DISPATCH IT UNTIL THEN.
I enjoy designing different types of needlework
and you can find kits and charts for blackwork
and a little pulled
work on these pages. If you haven’t tried
one or more of these techniques head over to the free online
and have a go! You will find free charts and
instructions for two
blackwork designs, a pretty hardanger piece and
some unusual cross
stitch projects. Have fun!
To give you more information on blackwork
embroidery I am putting together a pattern
library, a sort of beginner’s guide to
blackwork fill patterns and how to stitch them.
have to say thank you to all of you who have taken
the time to send me
photos of your work, especially when you have
adapted my designs. Check
Gallery to see what others have done also.
