Velvet Goldwork/Beading Board (UK Postage only)



Our quality goldwork boards are hand crafted at our Lakeland studio. ***Please note - You will need to let us know which colour you require by using the message facility at the time of order*** COLOURS AVAILABLE: Teal Berry Slate Grey We use high quality upholstery grade velvet for the dark surface and a finer 100% cotton needlecord velvet for the lighter side. Whilst constructed specially for goldwork, these also make excellent beading boards and jewellery mats. The goldwork board is approx A5 in size and will be supplied with a resealable wallet to keep it clean and protected. Precious chips of goldwork Check thread and beads are prevented from rolling around by the nap of the velvet which also provides a soft cutting surface to protect the wires as they are cut. Having a dark and light side allows the embroiderer or beader to easily see objects no matter what their colour. For those working embroideries on large frames, the lighter side will sit on the fabric of the piece without causing damage and the gentle ridges formed by the velvet cord act to stop it sliding around. A delicate soft braid edge finishes the board but does not sit up over the edge to avoid tiny chips or beads getting stuck. The interior of the goldwork board is a high grade sturdy mount board. Cleaning the board should only be carried out using a soft damp cloth. Do not wash. ***Tools shown for illustration only - These boards are available with tools on a separate listing*** Other colours are also available, please see listings. We also have an option available with a lovely high quality set of goldwork scissors and tweezers. We aim to photograph colours as true as possible but remember that colours can render differently on screens.
