A stitch in time makes the design…

For those history buffs among you, you’ll know the Jacobean period was 1603 – 1625, nothing remarkable in historic terms but very big on collars and cuffs!

Four hundred years later and scarcely a craft fair goes by without a plethora of stalls displaying bead embroidery necklaces and bracelets.

Time for a change? As the name would suggest, Jacobeadery is a subtle twist on tradition. We transform conventional thread embroidery stitches into those using beads and then use these to design beautiful items for everyday use… with scarcely a necklace or cuff in sight.

Whether you’re looking for a new hobby or a complementary skill, Jacobeadery can provide everything you need from a choice of instructions only, either download or hardcopy or full kits, which are complete with the exception of some simple tools!
