Creativity makes life more fun and more interesting.

Located in the heart of Pretoria Gardens, I offer a range of high quality embroidery panels and accessories to unlock the creative spirit in you.

I offer classes to persons from 6 years on the following, kindly call 076 713 7493 or 012 379 2401 to book a class:

  • Knitting
  • Cross Stitch

  • Do you want "me time" with your knitting, cross stitch and embroidery (since kids, hubby, cats and dogs do not allow you any "me-time" at home) - you are welcome to have your "me time" here with me. Bring along whatever you are working on (or buy from my ranges) and enjoy your "me time"

Lap en Lint Borduurgenot is located at 776 Hanny Street Pretoria Gardens, Pretoria.

Browse through the shop to find what you need.

Whether you are looking to get started with something simple, looking for that perfect ribbon or thread to complete your masterpiece, Lap en Lint Borduurgenot has what you need.

I mainly stock the well-known Di van Niekerk ribbon embroidery panels, books, DVD's as well as complete lesson boxes/pockets.
I also have the range of Di van Niekerk's silk and organza ribbons.

I have ranges of the following embroidery threads: 6 strand DMC embroidery cotton, Kreinik Blending, Madeira and Chameleon (all of which Di likes using on her designs).

Habedashery accessories: embroidery scissors, floss cards, embroidery hoops, embroidery needles, knitting needles, crochet hooks, 15cm zips, row counters and wool.

I have the most beautiful Kid's Mohair wool from Adele's Mohair Wholesalers who, together with a group of hardworking ladies on a farm in the Port Alfred area, spins and dyes the wool into stunning colours. Mohair does not gather dust, should be dried flat, no dry cleaning, chemicals needed to keep your garment beautiful for years to come. Just give it a few shakes and you ready to show it off again.

Also now for the quilters/patch makers - I'm an agent for the wellknown Quilter's Basket as well as FabFabrix: Fabric rolls, fabric sticks and fat quarters, 5 " x 5" squares and 10 " x 10 " squares. All fabrics are 100 % cotton and in a wide range of colours. However, please note that I do not keep bolts of fabric due to space constraint

I also have the beautiful designs of Roseworks. Each design is the work of owner and designer Colleen Goy. She has not only designed it, she has also test embroidered it, written the instructions and put a thread chart together.
