Carolyn Mitchell Designs


We all have the tools of our trade.  Items like scissors, needles, laying tools, counting pins, rulers, tape measures, and magnets to name a few.  Some we purchase with the idea we will never use them because they are too good and too beautiful to use.  Others are like work horses and are always being handled.

This elegant seven-piece ensemble consists of a needle case, pincushion, tekobari holder, scissor sheath, scissor fob, magnet-cover and box top. All pieces are worked on #18 Mono canvas. A wide selection of fibres, beads, crystals and lace adorn this ensemble. This course features twenty stitches for a delightful textural effect, and easy to read master charts, diagrams and instructions for you to follow. Techniques include layering stitches, couching, layered techniques and attaching objects. Attention is given to finishing techniques including the binding stitch and making cording with beads.
It is written to include the aquamarine colourway.
