The latest addition to our stained glass appliqué collection is a very beautiful Angel with Harp design. Doesn’t this look like something you would be inspired by each and every time you look at it? We are also adding to our needlework collection with the first two designs in our embroidery line. The very easy-to-embroider Celestial Dragon Bag and Dragonfly Bag patterns come with clear and comprehensive instructions for embroidery and finishing.

All of our stained glass appliqué patterns are complete images and are printed full size (no flipping, rotating or enlarging necessary). The stained glass appliqué patterns come with comprehensive and easy-to-follow instructions for both machine sewn reverse appliqué and for a truly fast and accurate quick-fuse method. (If you previously purchased one of our patterns and would like a copy of the additional quick-fuse instructions, e-mail us at patterns@threeswans.com and we’ll send them on to you electronically.) These patterns have also been drawn with a broken line down the centre of the stained glass ‘lead’ line to serve as a guide for a bias binding technique. We have general guidelines for our favourite bias binding technique available. Contact us if you have or want to order one of our patterns and your preferred method is to use bias binding. We will e-mail you a copy of our notes or include a printed copy in the pattern you order from us if you request it.

To see all of our designs – stained glass, appliqué and punch needle – have a browse through our Collection, including our Featured Alternatives. We’re sure that you will see something that will inspire you and your quilt making endeavours.

In addition to our appliqué, stained glass appliqué and embroidery patterns, we also have a needlework collection with a selection of designs done in punch needle. These patterns come with concise instructions to transfer the design and work the project and we list the threads used for the version of the design on our pattern and also three alternative thread colour combinations which could be used. In addition to using these designs for punch needle we encourage you to use them for embroidery projects - just put together your favourite background fabric, threads and embellishing materials and let our designs be a springboard for your imagination.

As a special offer to our customers, include any one of our three new designs with your order of two or more patterns(stained glass, appliqué or punch needle – the choice is yours), and we will pay the shipping and handling to anywhere in North America. For other North American orders, just add 10 percent to the cost of your patterns to cover shipping and handling. Please contact us for shipping costs to other destinations (typically we find that first class post is fast and not that expensive). For other Special Offers click here.

We will be introducing more new patterns throughout the year and will include them on our web site as soon as they become available. If you would like to be notified as soon as the new designs are up (or about new Three Swans Studios promotions), just send us an e-mail (patterns@threeswans.com) saying you want to be placed on our distribution list. (See our Privacy Statement).

All prices and promotions listed on this site are for retail sales only, but wholesale inquiries are always welcome.
