Happy Pride Month!

As a PRIDE ally I wanted to find a way that my company could support in a meaningful way. I have worked with a friend to create a PRIDE FLAG colourway for this wonderful pattern.

$25 from each kit purchased during PRIDE month (June 1-30, 2024) will be donated to a LGBTQ2S+ Youth focused group in Calgary.

Kit (Supplies ONLY) - 17 skeins of DMC Perle #5 (15 colours + 2 Black) + White 18 count Mono Canvas (20"x18") *This kit does ship as a parcel

You provide the cotton fabric to line the pouch and the optional chain + Stretcher Bars and tacks

Purchase the PDF downloadable version of the pattern on Freda's website:

Fabric - In stock Sizes noted on the listings

There are so many types and colours of fabrics I am unable to carry everything in stock. I am updating the listing to include the notes “Needs to be Ordered” or “Currently in Stock - Small, Medium and/or Large” … if you don’t see either note on a listing please assume it needs to be ordered

Introducing "The Grateful Thread" Hand Dyed Fabric

In Stock - Hand Dyed Fabrics! (find more using the dropdown menu)

Always in Stock

The Newest always in stock item is … DMC Perle #12 balls

There are some items that everyone needs to be in stock when you want it ... for me DMC floss is one of those items.  It always frustrates me when you go into a store (who will remain nameless) and they are out of stock on most of the thread.  You are all excited to start a new pattern and you are pulled down to Earth, your bubble bursts, your dreams are shattered .... well a little over the top but you all know the feeling.

I am going to create a core group of items that will always be in stock (barring unforeseen disasters ... like the zombie apocalypse or a ship stuck in the Suez Canal), I will try to have 2 skeins of each colour in stock.

Included in my "Always in Stock" are ....

DMC embroidery floss (solid & variegated)

DMC Perle Cotton #5 & #12! (other sizes by special order)

Weeks Dye Works Stranded Cotton

Appleton Crewel 2 ply wool (skeins only)

Classic Colorworks Cotton floss

Mill Hill Seed Beads (size 11 & 15)

"Always in Stock" DMC (Floss, Perle #5 & Perle #12)
