Australia's Leading Embroidery Specialist

Welcome to Allthreads Embroidery! Thank you for visiting our website. Now that you have landed on this page, let me tell you about our shop. Allthreads Embroidery is one of Queensland's only specialist needlework shops located in the Brisbane south-eastern suburb of Norman Park and owned and managed by Kerryn Lightfoot (me). 

I have a passion for embroidery and fine needlework and this is obvious in the many embroidered projects that are on display in the shop. To ensure that my customers receive the latest of embroidery and needlework products I am a member of the The Needlework Association of America (TNNA) as well as an overseas member of the Embroiderers' Guild of America. I am constantly on the lookout for new products for my customers and to this end, attend markets and conventions within Australia as well as overseas to source the latest products and to keep up to date with current trends.  

My favourite techniques are wool embroidery and crewelwork, however I am competent in many other techniques, including goldwork, stumpwork, ribbon embroidery, creative embroidery, cross stitch and Brazilian embroidery. With many years of embroidery and quilting experience I am keen to share my knowledge and experience and to help with any projects which you may have.

Working with me at Allthreads Embroidery is Debbie Mercer, a renowned embroidery designer and teacher. Debbie specialises in creative embroidery and incorporates stumpwork, ribbon embroidery and surface embroidery into her designs. She is a very experienced teacher having conducted workshops in her designs throughout Queensland and interstate. Debbie is the "tutor in residence" at Allthreads Embroidery and takes many of the regular weekly classes. She is experienced in all types of hand embroidery techniques and has an extremely vast knowledge of stitches. She is also very willing to share her expertise and experience and assist you with your projects.

I established Allthreads Embroidery in 2005 upon returning to live in Australia after many years overseas. While living overseas I was reliant on mail order and online shopping for my embroidery supplies, and I therefore understand the difficulties that are so often experienced by stitchers in isolated communities.  Committed to providing the service and products to customers of a “ONE STOP SHOP” for embroidery supplies, I have stocked Allthreads Embroidery with a huge array of threads, ribbons, beads, buttons, charms, kits, patterns, books and other accessories. At Allthreads Embroidery we carry complete ranges of many specialist embroidery threads.

Allthreads Embroidery is open Mondays to Fridays 9.30am to 3.30pm,and Saturday 9.00am to 12.00pm. The shop does not open on Sundays or public holidays. Allthreads Embroidery offers personal shopping in a relaxed, friendly environment, with experienced staff willing to help you. Classes are held weekly in a range of embroidery techniques including stumpwork, ribbon embroidery, Brazilian embroidery, wool embroidery, creative embroidery, hardanger and drawn thread, smocking, crewel embroidery and a program of classes is available.

Each year I arrange for visiting tutors from interstate and overseas to come to Allthreads to conduct specialist workshops in a variety of hand embroidery techniques. In 2015 visiting tutors to Allthreads include Nicola Jervis, Alison Cole, Margaret Light, Merrilyn Heazlewood, Jan Kerton, Maree Talbot, Jenny McWhinney, Alison Snepp and Catherine Howell. A program of workshops is available. These workshops provide an opportunity to extend your skills and knowledge.

I publish monthly newsletters filled with tips, ideas and new products. Be sure to register your email address and they will be sent to you automatically. Allthreads Embroidery also has a Facebook page that is updated regularly - be sure to Like Us to keep updated!
