Wow! Cécile Franconie’s new book, ‘Floralies‘, has us swooning, so this week we want to show you how beautiful it is. Cécile is an incredibly talented embroiderer from France, with a unique and very decorative style, with lots of beautiful floral motifs. We are so lucky, as Cécile has been teaching a few classes at Loop this Spring/Summer. We’ve been honoured to welcome her back to the shop.

Some of the threads we have from Au Ver A Soie - Metallic threads shown in Rose, Ice Blue and Copper

Loop has new embroidery threads! Au Ver A Soie was established in Paris in 1820, and has been producing high quality silk threads since then. They are perfect for all kinds of embroidery and stitching, even luxurious quilting! These lovely silks can also be used in jewellery making, tapestry, visible mending, cross stitch, sashiko, lace making, and more.
