Get creative with fabrics from Zweigart
Embroidery is more than just a hobby: it gives everyone the chance to discover themselves and give their own creativity free reign. In addition to the inventive and creative aspect, the joy of making things oneself and the feeling of having created something unique, embroidery offers one thing above all: tranquillity and recuperation from the everyday stress. Embroidery puts all of one’s attention on oneself and the work they’re creating, allowing a chance to switch off and set the everyday stress aside and forget one’s surroundings for a moment. Embroidery is yoga for the soil.
A MULTITUDE OF EMBROIDERY IDEAS
Every embroidery project starts with beautiful and extraordinary ideas. The designs in our embroidery booklets are created in our design studio and always pick up on the latest trends and colours. They give you motivation, suggestions and ideas for gifts at the same time. The booklets are arranged for various materials with topics and techniques such as handmade fabrics and techniques such as cross-stitch, Hardanger, barleycorn, myreshka, hemstitching, ajour, free embroidery and crocheting, as well as seasonal themes like Christmas and Easter.
The embroidery idea booklets are available in A5 format with 4 – 28 pages. You will find detailed worksheets in the embroidery ideas booklets for special techniques such as Hardanger and eyelet.
The largest collection selection in the world
All embroidery is based on needlework fabrics, upon which any desired embroidery technique can be put into practice. They have a clear surface structure and are square, so that warp and weft thread count is always exactly the same.
The most important feature of ZWEIGART® needlework fabrics is its outstanding countability, which is achieved by high-precision weaving. This is especially important for cross-stitch motifs. Embroidery on needlework fabrics usually involves counting, that is, the embroidery is done with one to two mesh threads. Nearly all of our needlework fabrics have a firm finish, making it easy to embroider even without a frame. The fabrics get soft after being washed, but they may also shrink a bit – this should be kept in mind. This rule generally holds true for embroidered fabrics: Always observe the care instructions for the threads used.
We offer a diverse range of needlework fabrics, such as Aidas, linen and evenweave, as well as a broad, fashionable colour palette. The collection is continuously updated for the latest trends.
From purchasing the selected source materials, dying the yarn and grey fabric, weaving on state-of-the-art dobby and Jacquard machines to the finishing and refinement process, every production step is carried out 100% in-house at ZWEIGART®. Our trademark is the “Orange Line” – an orange-coloured thread in the selvedge of all ZWEIGART®
fabrics. This is our sign for best quality, i.e. state-of-the-art fabrics that are colourfast, easy-care and absolutely precise in the weaving. That’s ZWEIGART® “Made in Germany.” The needlework fabrics from our weaving company are exported worldwide.
