What's New :: Catkin Embroidery

What's New


Welcome to the new updated web site, which we hope you find easy to use.

Some Catkin designs use Glissengloss gold thread. You can use your own choice of gold thread or substitute a gold DMC colour if you prefer. We chose this one because the stitchers here found it the most forgiving to work with and it adds that little touch of luxury to the completed work.
If your supplier doesn’t stock it however, you can, if ordering a chart, buy gold thread at the same time.

Latest Designs


<table><tr><td>Just arrived are two new cats designs and another in the 1920’s range.
I recently acquired two young tabby brothers from a rescue centre who are called Chas and Dave. They were the inspiration for the cat pictures.
In Butterflies Dave is showing his total lack of talent at catching things!</td><td></td></tr><tr><td></td><td>My neighbour has a better view than me of a nearby fishpond and told me where the boys go to every night.
Gone Fishing shows them with Chairman Miaow-an enormous white cat with black spots who has been kind enough to introduce them to the neighbourhood.</td>
</tr><tr><td>March is the fourth in the 1920s months</td><td></td></tr></table>
