I’ve noticed a big interest in embroidery this year, in part because of all the 1916 commemorative work being done by embroiderers.

We stock a huge range of DMC embroidery threads, which are the best available.  From today, we stock DMC tranfer pens (simply draw or trace your design on fabric and stitch over the lines) and DMC embroidery tracing paper (contains four 8.5″ x 11″ wax-free sheets).
