Top Teacher Embroidery Kit

Do you know a teacher who deserves a gold star? Tell them they're top with a fun embroidery kit!

The Super Simple range is here to teach you embroidery, even if you've never picked up a needle and thread before.

The easy to read booklet will guide you through your project from start to finish, and each kit includes everything you need to complete your piece - all you need are a pair of scissors and a pen!

There's plenty of extra thread, a large needle, and only two stitches to master. Plus, you can find extra video tutorials, advice, and support here on our website - so we've got you covered!

Each design in the Super Simple range takes two or three hours to complete, and they're easy to put down or pick up whenever you fancy it.

    1. Our kits are as eco-friendly as possible, with organic & ethically sourced fabric, FSC wooden hoops made in the UK, FSC and or recycled paper/card, and recycled postal mailers.

    2. All Paraffle kits are handmade in Scotland, in our Edinburgh studio - every purchase means supporting a small, female founded business.

    3. All of our kits - from super easy to intermediate - include a detailed booklet, with lots of photos to teach you each stitch. If videos are more your style, there’s video tutorials covering every stitch you’ll need in our ‘Stitches’ blog.

    4. The kit includes a high quality reference photo of the finished design, and an easy to follow key showing you which stitches and colours to use.

    5. Each kit includes a quality 8 inch wooden hoop and plenty of DMC thread (so don’t worry if you make a mistake or want to practice first!).

    6. Our kits come with a pre-printed pattern to stick onto your fabric. It’s water-soluble, so you simply stitch over it, then wash it away (don’t worry, the threads are coloursafe!). Our patterns aren’t printed directly onto the fabric - we’ve done our research, and haven’t found any fabric printers that can tell us exactly where their fabric comes from and how it’s made. That’s important to us - so we found another way!

    7. Embroidery is a helpful tool for encouraging mindfulness and giving you some extra head space.

    8. Our kits aim to gently teach you lifelong skills and get your creative juices flowing (even if you’re not a ‘crafty’ person!).

    9. We’re a carbon neutral business, and donate at least 10% of our profits to charity through dedicated charity designs.
