Stitchers’ Treasures

Welcome to the Border Tart’s 2024 subscription boxes

Many of you will know how much I enjoy seeking out fabrics from faraway places and supporting other makers. And you’ll be aware I can’t resist a blue...

For lovers of interesting cloth and hand dyed threads I am offering little boxes through your letterbox every other month in 2024.

Of course there is an blues and indigos box, but there’s a rich spicy shades one too. I aim to bring you inspiring content, and an opportunity to experiment with textiles you may not otherwise have found.


Colour themes and contents

Moody Blues - expect some peacock shades as well as indigos and blues

Spice Box - expect terracotta, ginger, earthy and spicy, plus the occasional red

You will receive a carefully selected fabric piece, nominally 50cm x 50cm from somewhere in the world, and a skein of hand dyed or specialist thread. Dyers may be from anywhere, may even be me. Fabrics will be a mix of patterns and solids. The letterbox-friendly box will also contain a little vintage fabric, or buttons, or contrasting thread or other treat.

Handwoven fabrics can vary dramatically in width. I will always try to compensate for narrow width by sending a longer length. Many fabrics show minor colour/print variation, or slubs or other perceived errors. I encourage you to embrace these as evidence of the maker's hand. 


How it works

You choose your colour theme.

And choose either 6 months (3 boxes) or a year (6 boxes).

Be sure to select the correct delivery destination - either UK or Rest of World.

Boxes are despatched at the start of every second month, commencing in February 2024.

Boxes for any given month/colour choice are similar but not necessarily identical in content.

Just a few rows while I finish my coffee.

Early on Day Three - before the crowds
Interesting mix of people and some great new contacts made today. And the yarn supplies are shrinking 🤗
Had a grand first day at Harrogate @theknittingandstitchingshows and this is the only pic I took. The hand worked back of this lovely customer’s jacket! 

(To be fair, my phone was pretty busy being a card machine😊)
Set up and (almost) ready for Day One tomorrow.

With huge thanks to my star setter-upper who put up with my pernickety ways and took this pic.

Find us in the Textile Gallery, Hall M, together with lots of lovely artists and makers.

Almost finished packing for @theknittingandstitchingshows Harrogate but wee niggly things to sort yet. Nice to be this far long in the process though. 
Back to prep for @theknittingandstitchingshows in Harrogate next week.
Yarns of all sizes now packed! 
If you are coming to the show I will have some serious yarny bargains for you😉
