Jacquie SAL • Magic Needlebook


Join this Stitch-ALong to stitch & finish the Jacquie Magic Needlebook!

Fancy being the David Copperfield of the stitching world? Forget stitching a regular needlebook. This truly special item will make you a master of illusion!

The magic isn’t just in the final product (although it is a big part of it!) – this project is a pick-and-mix dual level needlework pattern: intermediate and/or expert. You can stitch just the intermediate version, or just the expert one, or you can create magic of your own and decide which expert stitches to include in your very own version.

A magical project in every sense of the word!

Please see the description tab for more information.
