I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

Discount Embroidery Supplies and Kits


Amazon Books

If you’re looking for a discount on embroidery kits, etc., I just visited a website where everything’s going 40% off. They have some gorgeous kits and neat accessories…

I was disappointed to see that Jenny June is going out of business. This website (attached to their “real” store) offers some beautiful kits and excessories. If you’ve ever seen the Roseworks embroidery kits (out of South Africa), then you know what I mean by beautiful. Anyway, they don’t have a whole lot of stuff left in stock, though you will still find some books, fabric (limited supply), and several kits (mostly instructions and marked fabric, without the threads) still available.

Many of the kits that are available are suited to beginners, although several are good for the intermediate to advanced embroiderer. There are all kinds of categories – general surface embroidery, crewel, stumpwork, etc.

What I especially liked about Jenny June is that the things they offered were “pretty” – their website was a fun place to browse through beautiful embroidery goods. I found their prices a little high – just slightly over the standard prices for similar stuff. But with the 40% discount they are offering now, you can get some good deals. A little drawback is that the shipping time is up the 30 days, since they are in the middle of restructuring their store. It doesn’t hurt, though, to see what’s left in stock, especially if you are looking for some fun and easy kits to enjoy!

Visit Jenny June Fancy Work before they close for good!
