Having never tried embroidery before, we discovered The Fabled Thread in the deepest dark of lockdown. Soothing as well as satisfying, we were instantly hooked. Founded by Eppie Thompson, the contemporary designs offer a modern take on the more traditional, floral-heavy tapestry kits out there. There are now four ranges to choose from: The Samplers based on Victorian samplers that can be customised to celebrate weddings, babies and new homes, The Fables based on Aesop’s fables, The Musicians that would look great framed as a merry band and The Camels, recommended for beginners.
New this week are the Just So cushion kits that feature Rudyard Kipling’s stories. These come in two sizes, Large (40cm x 60cm, £110) and Standard (35cm x 50cm, £95). As with all the embroidery kits, these come in beautiful gift boxes and would make a very good Christmas present.
Eppie is going to be offering 15% off all orders placed from 31 October at 9am – midnight 8 November. Use the code: CHRISTMAS15 at the check out. Shop here.
