Add to Basket
Book Description

Worked in counted thread techniques using hand-dyed silk threads, each etui is adorned with exquisite motifs based on themes including antique toys, Elizabethan caskets, pioneer samplers and beloved fruits and flowers. Betsy has designed a charming selection of small projects to match each etui including scissor sheaths and fobs, thread winders, needlebooks, pincushions and thimble cases.

Eight captivating etuis with coordinating accessories are included, along with colour charts to guide every stitch. Detailed instructions are provided for every step from stitching to construction.

About the Author

About Inspirations Studios

With a rich history forged with needle and thread, Inspirations publishes the world’s most beautiful needlework books and magazines.



This is a beautiful beautiful book. I just adored it as soon as I set eyes on it and I am sure lovers of embroidery will love it as much as I do. 

An etui is 'a small ornamental case for holding needles, cosmetics, and other articles.'. They are absolutely exquisite and Betsy Morgan is brilliant at her craft. 

Photographed in full colour, you cannot help but be amazed at how delicate and stunning these little cases are, and the accessories are just as amazing. 

Button boxes, needle cases and so much more are showcased and easy to follow instructions are given in visual and written format. 

Using the finest silks and counted linen, each piece on its own is beautiful, but when put together with the added accessories, I can see many embroiderers wanting to make them over and over again.

Given as gifts they would surprise and delight, but of course I want to keep some for myself. I made a button box in a few days and cannot wait to get started on my next piece.
