Stitchers Templates Set 1

ebook cover Sharon B's CQ StencilsI’m a stitcher who loves crazy quilting, so I designed these templates with other hand embroiderers in mind. Stitchers Templates Set 1 was the first set I designed for hand embroiderers and Crazy quilters – hence the name. And I created them to be as versatile as possible. You can create hundreds of different patterns with them to embroider on your crazy quilting projects. They are easy to use, and totally clear to help you position them easily and they are nice and compact to fit in your sewing box. And to ensure the highest quality, the templates are made in Australia.

To show how these templates could be used, I wrote an ebook and drafted out lots of patterns. The Link to your ebook is sent to your PayPal email when you purchase the templates. The ebook is specific to the particular template set.

I am sure that once you start using my templates you will think of many more designs! Here is a sneak peek inside the book showing you how you can design your own seam embellishments and patterns.

When I designed the templates I thought in terms of having enough space to tuck my favourite stitches, beads, small floral lace motifs and favourite silk ribbon embroidery flowers into the spaces in the patterns produced.

People often get stumped on how to include larger items such as buttons in crazy quilting. For that reason, I have included space in some of the patterns, for buttons and large beads to be incorporated.

Using the shapes found on the edge of each stencil you can create lots of seam embellishments but a key feature of these stencils is that you will find a number of curves and flourishes, to help you build the stems and vines of floral motifs. By using the flourish shapes, the curves of the paisley shape, heart shapes and by using segments of the oval and disk shapes, you can create a huge range of designs yourself.

The flowers are buttons, to which I added the stems of this floral spray with detached chain stitch (also known as Lazy Daisy) and straight stitches.

In this sample, I used hand dyed perle #5 cotton. As a finishing touch, I added a few seed beads and a few small pearls.

I deliberately kept the templates small so that they fit easily into a sewing box. Anyone who knows me, knows I like things compact.  Their handy size means that if you are travelling to a workshop or to a local stitching get together, you are not cluttering up your supplies with lots of large templates.

I hope these templates motivate you to discover your creativity.

This is another seam I recently embroidered using the hexagon shape. Or perhaps I should say, half of the hexagon shape.

I traced a line of half-hexagons along the seam. Then I embroidered them in threaded chain stitch using perle cotton #5. Next, I added beads and bead tassels!

  1. Hi Sharon.
    I’m loving the TASTs and I think I’m ready for your templates. I’d like to buy both sets, but I live in Sydney, Aus. I was wondering if there was any way I could pay in AUS$ rather than US$. I thought I’d check before I went ahead.
    Thanks for your time.

    1. Hi Victoria new stock has just arrived – honestly about an hour ago – so I will package some up and a paypal buy button will go on the site! Give me a day or so as I know there are good few people waiting so will have to package a good amount.

  2. Hi Sharon – I bought set #1 a couple of years ago but lost the ebook when I moved recently. I can’t find the link you emailed me when I bought the templates. Can you email me the link to the ebook again? Thanks!

  3. I purchased both sets of templates at least a couple years ago and used them for projects then. However, they were “put away” after that. In the process of some cleaning & reorganization, I found them again! But I have no idea where the pages p.d.f pages are. Would it be possible to have them re-sent to me? Hopefully, I will not lose them again.

  4. If I bought both stitchers templates, can you combine shipping and send them together. To the USA, what would the cost be?
    I am on a fixed income and bought and love your book (think you know that). $60.00 for 2 plus $16.00 for shipping is more than I can handle. Please let me know. Thank you and God Bless you.

  5. I bought temp 1 and temp 2 and the ebooks that came with them downloaded on my tablet….but i cannot print them from the tablet……could you please send them again and then i can print from my computer……sorry as i messed up ……i was born too late to understand all these particulars….between computers phones that are supposed to be in your pocket and tablets that you dont write letters on

    1. Rosemary – I have just sent you an email but wanted to add when the buy button takes you to paypal follow the instruction from there to confirm the sale. If you do not have a pay pal account you need to set one up.

  7. Sharon, I have added both sets to a cart to purchase, but can’t find the cart to pay. It takes me straight to PP but nothing there to pay. Can you let me know how to pay and give you me details…

  8. Hello,
    I would like to order both set of your stencils. (1&2). I live in Alsace France. Is it possible for you to send them to me here? Thank you for you help in advance.

    1. Hi Sue I just dropped you an email to say I have added you to the list of people I will email when they are back in stock ( hopefully they will be here in a day or so)

    1. Ann I dropped you an email but the shipping charges go up if I combine them. If I post individually Australia post classifies them as flat package they can go at letter parcel rate. If I pack two together they become a parcel and Australia post charges me more for parcel than a letter parcel and the two together cost more than two posted individually. I don’t understand the logic but it works out that if you want 2 sets it is cheaper individually.

    1. JO I just sent you a copy of an email I sent on the 17th of feb when you ordered the templates – it has the link to the module in it. Check your spam folder as both might have gone there
