New Look at a Great Embroidery Shop Online!


Amazon Books

If you’re looking for an online resource for threads, fabrics, accessories, etc., for hand embroidery, you’ll find Hedgehog Handworks a useful and friendly place to shop. I love this embroidery shop! If you haven’t had a chance to check out Hedgehog Handworks, there’s no time like the present. This is where I get Au Ver a Soie silks and Legacy linen, Hardwicke Manor hoops, cotton floche, Fine d’Aubusson crewel wool, among other things here and there, now and then. They’ve got all kinds of tools, and just about anything the stitcher could want!

Update, 2017: The owner of Hedgehog Handworks retired early in 2017, and the shop is now closed.

    1. Hi, Beth – no, I’m afraid it’s not. I’ve updated the post now with different information, directing folks to Hedgehog Handworks. Twining Thread closed a couple years later, unfortunately. It was a neat shop!
