Lorna Bateman Embroidery Designer Kits

Welcome to Lorna Bateman Embroidery

HOCHANDA update  –    I will be appearing on 10 November 2016, on Hochanda craft channel, at 8.00am (eek!!) , 10.00 am and again at 5.00 pm. Two sessions will be on ribbon embroidery and the other creative stitches. Updated to 3 sessions!


NEW!  We are now geared to take CARD PAYMENTS, without customers necessarily going through  a paypal account.  If you click on the paypal checkout button, you are then taken to the payment page, where you have two options – either login to your paypal account OR use the DEBIT and CREDIT card options, available for paying without a paypal account. We are also DIGICERT secure!

We sell a large range of designer embroidery kits, as well as a range of hand dyed threads from Chameleon threads, silk ribbons from River Silks, pincushions and some haberdashery.

In keeping our entire product range has been revamped and repackaged to present a high end quality product suitable for both personal use or for purchasing as a gift. The product range includes both designs for the beginner as well as embroiderer looking for a more challenging project. We offer full kits, as well as pattern and print, and pattern only/PDF files.

I have lived in the UK for 17 years – originally from South Africa – and am now happily working as a teacher and designer. I love all forms of 3-dimensional, raised and textured embroidery and try to encompass as many of them in my designs as possible!
