A BUSINESS based in a village near Ashbourne has joined up with one of the town’s independent stores to showcase hand-crafted products in a new window display.
Threads, which is based in Alstonefield and jointly run by Cathy Reavy and Jani Barnard, has a new display in Best Stitches, in Dig Street.
The two firms have been running for around 18 months and the new window display is based around a variety of items that can be made on the Threads workshops, including Japanese temari balls, embroidered biscornu and corsages.
Products on display also include quilted IPAD cases and a tray cloth worked on pure linen with Chicken Scratch stitch, a style thought to have originated in America.
A Bayeux stitch spectacle case in pure silk will also be on display, as will a Crewelwork sampler entitled ‘A Nice Cup of Tea’.
The majority of the items on the diplay, which will be in place until Monday, March 3, can be made by complete beginners.
A full list of workshop dates for 2014 can be obtained from Best Stitches, by visiting www.threadsworkshops.co.uk or by calling 01335 310125.
