Jacquie Magic Needlebook

(1 customer review)


The Jacquie Magic Needlebook SAL is now fully published, so there are no new instalments to come. There is no deadline to stitch it, however, so new members are welcome at any time!

What makes this little book a magic needlebook, you say? It is totally reversible and double-hinged, so there is no front or back!

Please see the description tab for more information. Also check out the video tab for a little demo!


PLEASE NOTE: this pattern was originally a SAL (Stitch-ALong). Its format is therefore very different from “normal” patterns. You will get a Welcome Booklet, as well as individual patterns as described below:

THE WELCOME BOOKLET includes all the information you need to get started:

  • a detailed shopping list 
  • a schedule page with all SAL dates
  • a full key for all the colours used
  • a printable thread card
  • a layout page with a suggestion of how to place each section on the fabric
  • the outline of each section
  • a special stitch tutorial page for all those used in this SAL

EACH PART is then downloadable:

  • a chart for each of the 8 parts to be stitched
  • a finishing tutorial (in 2 parts) with very clear instructions & photos, to fully assemble the project


  • Zweigart Belfast 32ct linen [Alternative: Zweigart Cashel 28ct linen]
  • DMC stranded cotton
  • Rainbow Gallery Petite Treasure Braid
  • Mill Hill beads
  • 6 mm sequins


  • full cross-stitch (only 3 fractional cross-stitches in the whole design)
  • backstitch (with some fractional stitches)
  • French knots (or Colonial knots, if preferred)
  • special stitches:
    • intermediate version: 2 simple types of special stitches
    • expert version: 6 different types of special stitches, including some stumpwork
  • beads
  • sequins


  • Facebook Group: if you’re on Facebook, feel free to join the Faby Reilly Designs SAL group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/FRDSALS/ where I’ll be at hand to answer questions, and we can all admire each other’s beautiful work as it progresses!

    I have just completed the Jacquie SAL and absolutely loved it! I challenged myself to do the expert level and learnt so much in the process. Faby’s instructions are well written and clear with lots of pictures to help! And I have a beautiful ‘magic’ needlebook to show for it.
