Visible Mending supplies

Whether taking my Visible Mending workshop or following my YouTube playlist, you will need various materials. If you have no supplies, you'll likely want both the Ultra Embroidery Kit and a Speedweve Loom Kit. Each kit comes with a handout and is packaged in a cotton drawstring bag.

  • Basic embroidery kit includes embroidery hoop, embroidery needle, muslin fabric, and a few colors of embroidery floss.

  • Ultra embroidery kit includes embroidery hoop, embroidery needle, muslin fabric, a few colors of embroidery floss, thread snips, and dual purpose disappearing ink fabric marking pen.

This loom is the best budget friendly option I have found and is made in China with unfinished wood.
