Couronne or Hedebo Sticks available

hedebo stickJust a quick heads up as we were asked if Jerry could turn some Couronne sticks. Some people know them as Hedebo sticks. So we decided to try some in the shop. They are not huge bulky things but are a bit thicker than a thick marker or fountain pen. This means they are a delight to use as they sit in the hand comfortably. They don’t dig in. I know I will be using mine more!

Couronne stick or couronne stickThey have five steps ranging from 12mm to 5mm. Also since they are 5.5 inches (140mm) long they fit into any sewing box.

Our Couronne/Hedebo Sticks are handcrafted with care from the finest sustainably grown Australian and international plantation timber.

Check them out here in our shop.


  1. Hi Sharon. Would there be any chance of a half hedebo stick. That is – one rounded side and the other flat, ungrooved so it can be held flat against a project to make a 3D shape. I have seen them but cannot seem to find out where to get one. I want to use it for stump work and in my wool embroidery. Thanks

    1. Hi Kerry – yes I know what you mean – it is similar to embroidery shoes. Jerry made some for me – I have them photographed half way down this page
      They are extremely fiddly to make which makes them labour intensive. Jerry and I are thinking about it as I have a hunch there would be a demand – they are specialised so we would not sell a lot of them but people who want them would buy them as I don’t think anyone makes them anymore. Anyway I will send you an email to check we are talking about the same thing more or less!

  2. Hi Sharon, this is an intriguing tool. I spent a good hour or so online today, trying to finding information or a tutorial for making the rings, with no luck so far. In the meantime, it looks like your current stock sold out I’ll keep a look out for new stock. And also look forward to your tutorial whenever/if you can manage it. Thanks for all your wonderful, inspiring posts/newsletters. Little sparks of joy and uplift each time

      1. Great to hear, Sharon. But no pressure … you know us hand crafters, we wait patiently and appreciatively our every new gizmo and tutorial
        All in good time . Hoping all is well with you and yours xx

    1. Joy Brigitte and Laurie – you make freestanding rings with them that you can use in both traditional needlelace techniques and contemporary freeform techniques. When I have time I so a tutorial but basically you make rings with them I like combining the rings in my textual free form embroidery.
