This embroidery hoop kit is the perfect way to treasure a special occasion, that wonderful person or pet in your life or to remember the holiday of a lifetime.  A brilliant keepsake or gift for a loved one, this handmade artwork is a truly unique way to display your embroidered memory.

Suitable for all skill levels, your hand stitched message can be created in back stitch or trailing for that extra personal touch.

Your bespoke kit will include your chosen photograph and message printed onto cotton twill fabric, 6 inch embroidery hoop, stranded cotton thread, needles, button thread and a clear instruction booklet with step by step photographs to easily guide you through your project. 

Simply upload the photograph of your choice, tell us what message you would like to embroider, your preference of thread colour and leave the rest to us!

When selecting a photo it is worth remembering that this will be cropped to a circle so ideally the subject should be as close to the centre as possible. Cropping your photo to a square first can help with this. For optimal results, the photograph will need to be of high quality for printing onto fabric.

Let us know your preference of thread colour and then we will choose the best match for your photo, alternatively, if you would like us to choose for you simply put ‘no preference’ in the colour choice box.

We will chose the best position of the text for your design however if you have a preference please let us know within the comments section. For example if you would like the text to appear in the bottom right hand corner and so on.
