Profile - Classic EmbroideryClassic Embroidery is a family business that producing a large range of needlecraft kits. The range contains more than 400 designs and includes cross-stitch, blackwork, hardanger, counted thread and embroidery.
By working with a number of designers, recent emphasis has been to build on the popular range of 'extended' blackwork kits, that is, kits that start with blackwork techniques and then add additional impact and interest. In particular, a collaboration with Di Kaye, whose particular love is to paint in an art deco style, is proving to be a fruitful source of material and a number of blackwork and cross stitch kits, under the title of 'Deco Elegance', have been produced. These designs use metallic threads, beads, sequins and in some cases Swarovski crystals and add that 'wow' factor to the stitching. We are also continuing to work with Jill Cater Nixon to extend her very successful range of blackwork designs.
