Pay-it-forward Thread Journal

Pay-it-forward Thread Journal

Buy a Thread Journal Kit for someone with low/no income. 


Any kits bought through here will be posted to someone who deserves a break, has been having a tough time or has low/no income and couldn’t afford to buy this kit themselves. I will choose people to send kits to regularly from applications received.


I am posting one Complete Course & Kit out a month myself to someone who I will choose from the applications, and any extras bought by you lovely folks will be sent out in addition. 


I know that creating Thread Journals have been massively beneficial for my mental health and I’m hoping it will help other people too. So please purchase a kit so that I can send lots out to people who really need this in their life, but who couldn’t otherwise afford to have it right now.



STARTER KIT (see 3rd image)

This embroidery kit has all the supplies that you need to start your very own hand embroidered thread journal:

- 100% cotton fabric

- 20cm embroidery hoop

- Embroidery floss (x2)

- Two embroidery needles

- Embroidery scissors

- 100% cotton hand stamped bag to keep your project and supplies together and clean


The thread journal starter instructions come with lots of detail, pictures and step by step directions for every step of the way and is ideal for any experience level, including beginners. If you’re anything like me, videos are by far the easiest way to learn. As us crafty folk tend to be more visual learners, I have also created a series of fully narrated video tutorials to accompany the instructions.


This 10 page tutorial includes:

- List of supplies and tools required

- Detailed instructions for preparing your fabric & loading your embroidery hoop

- Instructions for preparing your thread and threading your needle

- Your project, your rules (hints and tips for creating your own thread journal)

- Using a reference (hints and tips for creating your own mini stitches - Please note due to the nature of the thread journal being a personal record of your own memories, individual mini stitch patterns are not included in this PDF)

- Tips and techniques to avoid for starting and stopping your thread without fiddly knots

- Links to detailed YouTube video tutorials

- Individual stitch illustrations and instructions (Month 1 includes back stitch and whipped back stitch)
