Review Mary Corbet Needle N Thread

"The book is extra-special, thanks to a few nuances and extras that we don’t often find in this type of embroidery book.  If you love needlepainting, if you want to explore needlepainting fully, if you love botanicals, you’re going to love this book, and you’ll find it a treasure."


I am a self taught embroidery artist from Cape Town, South Africa.  I specialize in Needle painting and Whitework Embroidery and my aim is to help others to develop their embroidery skills, provide inspiration and spread the love of this beautiful art!  In the last 17 years I have published several books, created embroidery patterns, tutorials, videos and taught both at home and abroad.  I work from my home studio , with beautiful views of trees and mountains.  I am grateful every day to be inspired by my surroundings and to do what I love most.


Truly stunned! The booklet is amazing (as a first timer to needle painting, it will be an integral part in all of my learning!), the pattern is gorgeous, the delivery swift and I  really can't wait to start! Thank you!

My goodness Trish Burr you are so amazing! The packaging was meticulous - The detail in putting these together - what can I say? Right down to the little thank you note/sticker. The quality of the fabric and the printing is amazing! I order online all the time but have never been treated to such loving care! If there were 10 stars I would give it a 10. Thank you!

All items from Trish Burr are excellent value, original and well executed with clear instructions. A great buy and nobody need doubt the integrity of this seller - well worth reviewing her beautiful site with something for everyone.
