Clever Poppy

Embroidery Starter Kit

We have put a lot of love into curating these kits for our members. The embroidery tools here are great quality. Plus, everything has been tried and tested by me, so we know you will have the best journey learning embroidery as possible.

This kit includes the basic equipment you'll use over and over again, each time you make and embroidery project.

Please choose which of our 7 different scissor options you want to include in your kit.

Note: You will also need to buy the 'Project Kit' for each pattern (which will cover the thread, fabric and display hoop for that particular pattern).

This kit includes:

  • Rico Design Embroidery Hoop Mauve 20.3cm (8")

I absolutely love the Rico Design embroidery hoops (finally a beautiful plastic hoop!).  This Mauve 20.3cm hoop is perfect for holding your fabric nice and taut while you stitch your patterns, and this size will suit the majority of your embroidery projects.

  • DMC Gold 9cm scissors OR Clever Poppy scissors (three colours) in round or heart shape.

You have the choice between the DMC Gold 9cm Scissors or our own custom Clever Poppy scissors (round or heart shape).  The Clever Poppy scissors come in three colours - Mustard, Peach or Sea Green.

  • DMC Embroidery Needles Size #3 to #9

These needles have a large eye for helping you thread your floss through and this range of sizes will suit you well in your embroidery journey.

  • DMC Transfer Pen

This embroidery transfer pen will wash away in water once your creation is complete leaving no trace of any pattern markings.

Additional Notes:  We strive to use sustainable packaging where possible.  All the packaging used in this kit is compostable including the clear eco-bags sourced from econic packaging.
