Needlelace Designs


Loretta's Custom Stitchery

All designs come screen printed on the fabric described.  Complete instructions are included as well as any special parts such as beads, wire, and needlelace couching patterns.  Threads are not included.  A thread list is on the outside of each packet.  Most of the threads used in the models are EdMar Brazilian embroidery threads.  I do not sell threads, but you will find sources in the resource links.  I have eliminated the kit versions of my needlelace butterflies and heart.  You will find them as PDF files for sale on the "PDF Designs" page.
