Purple Garden Embroidery Kit by Beaks and Bobbins

  •  Beaks and Bobbins is a family business based in North Yorkshire.

    They create original illustrative embroideries using layered collages of torn and cut fabrics which are then stitched into using stranded cottons, silks, and textured yarns.

    They started by using the embroideries as designs to print greeting cards and fabric. However, after feedback from their customers wanting to stitch the designs themselves, they started to develop a steadily increasing range of kits.

    Their designs are inspired by nature and they endeavour to do as much as we can to protect it by using organic fabrics.
