Assorted Embroidery Kits by Hook, Line & Tinker
All of Hook, Line & Tinker’s embroidery illustrations are original and designed by Laurie Dolhan for beginner stitchers. Patterns are unique and modern in style. The limited colour palette and use of recurring motifs is purposeful - finished hoops hang well as mix-and-match groupings and tell a cohesive story within a theme. Some patterns are easy peasy first time friendly, others are for ambitious beginners. But all allow for creativity, experimentation, and calm.
Each illustration is repeatedly rendered through the craft of hand embroidery using a variety of basic, introductory stitches to build texture and a pleasing design. The 100% cotton fabric is printed in studio using a Mimaki TX300P-1800 fabric printer. (AKA, "The Beast")
