Welcome!

Hi I’m Tanja Berlin and I design hand embroidery kits for other embroidery enthusiasts to stitch. I also sell hand embroidery supplies, needlework threads such as goldwork / metal threads and needlework tools that I use myself so I can testify to their quality.

I am having some work done on the website to improve the speed, once this has been completed I will be emailing out a special discount.

I will be away from Monday 9th of September until Friday 13th of September, during this time I will not be able to reply to emails, return telephone calls or process orders, sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Kit of the Month

Blue Flax Needle Painting Kit

The blue flax is a beginners kit in needle painting.

Needle painting, also known as thread painting is the most realistic form of surface embroidery.

Eight shades of DMC embroidery cotton thread are used to stitch on the blue flax on 100% Southern Belle cotton fabric and there are lots of diagrams and instructions to guide you through the embroidery.

What my customers say about my kits

“I have wanted to do the fox for some time and found him to be one of my most enjoyable pieces to stitch”

Embroidered by Beryl Burnett in MB, Canada

 “There are some really unique thought processes you went through to figure out how to stitch him and have him look so real yet give him such character”

Embroidered by Cris Tilliss in CO, USA

“This was the first I did of Tanja’s patterns. It was amazing to see how blackwork gets without outlines. The explanations were very good and easy to follow.”

Embroidered by Sara Skaervik in Norway

“I loved working this bluebird and blossoms needlework kit. Since this was only my second needle painting project, the thorough and easy to follow instructions were a big help”

Embroidered by Stacey Tucker

“As a first time at Needle Painting, this took me a while to complete – but worth every stitch.”
