The digital store has closed and all digital patterns can now be found in the Embroidery Shop.  There are over 85 PDF patterns available and you can now purchase the  fabric, iron on transfer and needles for each pattern in the same store.

Iron on Transfers

Tracing your own outlines is a thing of the past –  simple to use, crisp, clear, iron on transfers for each PDF pattern and all the projects in my last 4 books can now be purchased in the online shop.    The transfers work well with the recommended cotton muslin and linen fabric  for sale in the shop or can be used successfully with your own fabric as long as it is not silk.  Iron on transfers do not work with silk of any description, but the freezer paper method does work successfully.

The iron on transfer for the Kingfisher & flower an be found here.

On the subject of iron on transfers I am excited to let you know (and can reveal) that the new book will include iron on transfers for each project in the book.

Till next time, wherever you are in the world, keep smiling and happy stitching.
