About Us Teaching Press Shop Embroidery Heritage Online University

Needlework Nibbles are small projects designed to let you try a new material that is hard to find or new technique. The new materials are usually one that I have imported or had made to my specifications to allow us to do a type of needlework not practiced very much anymore. Often, these materials may be in short supply or packaged such that they are expensive. The 'Nibble' allows the stitcher to try the material/technique out before committing to a larger investment.

The nature of the materials for Needlework Nibbles makes the kits very limited in nature. Often the run of kits will be between 30-100 kits, depending on material availability.

The instructions for Needlework Nibbles are available in the Web Projects part of the Thistle Threads website. Announcements of new limited time Needlework Nibbles are made in the monthly Thistle Threads Newsletters.
