needlelace Samplers, Stumpwork & Embroidery Kits

I am currently unavaible. All orders will be processed at the end of November.

Doreen's kits are Stumpwork, Embroidery, Cross Stitch and Reproduction Sampler  kits. The Stumpwork kits are worked in the traditional way using a mixture of long and short stitch plus needlelace techniques. If you look at 'old' pieces of stumpwork you will see these different techniques. Another name for Stumpwork is Raised Embroidery and embroidery/needlelace techniques were used in the antique pieces.
All of the kits on this website are designed and worked by Doreen. She produces kits under two different labels - some are for Pearsall's - a silk manufacturer based in Taunton, and some are produced under Doreen's own label - Leisure Needle.

All the kits, Stumpwork, Embroidery, and Samplers are available to buy online - the Pearsall's Stumpwork kits come with everything you need including an appropriate amount of thread to complete the project. The Leisure Needle kits which are Stumpwork, Counted Thread and Needlelace, come with everything except the threads - these can be bought at additional cost by clicking on the additional 'Add to Cart' button in each section - these will be whole skeins of Pearsall's Filoselle silks. When you have chosen everything you would like, you can check your items and make a purchase by clicking on the 'View Cart' button at the top or bottom of each page. We accept online payments using Paypal, but you do not need your own Paypal account to make a purchase as we also accept credit and debit cards via this secure system. The prices include postage and packing. For more information please e-mail
