Traditionelle Stranded Cotton
A collection of twenty-eight threads and six accompanying embroidery patterns, is Brenda Ryan’s celebration of embroidery and stitchery traditions for CGT’s premier Edit release.
Brenda believes that she is just one in a long line of embroiderers who have an interest in stitching the things we love and hold dear, from children and their world to gardening and all of its delights.
These pretty and inviting thread colours are a perfect fit for her graceful patterns in honouring the French tradition of producing fine threads and embroidery.

Namesake Stranded Cotton
Namesake is a not-so-secret glimpse into the life of Amy Kallissa; it shares Amy’s love for animals and discovering their individual personalities.
Thrilled by the excitement of being invited to collaborate with CGT for their premier Edit collections, Amy has put together a range of quirky and beloved characters, each with their own story to share and build upon.
Along with twenty-eight unique and contemporary tailored threads of furs, solids, bohemian and hipster colours, Namesake is the next part of the journey for Amy Kallissa in bridging the gap between our foremothers and the younger generation.

Typography Stranded Cotton
C for Charlie, G for Golf, T for Tango. Typography is one of CGT’s premier Edit collections designed by CGT’s very own Katie Dawson. “The spark of inspiration hit me when my son Mac asked me if there was a thread for every letter of the alphabet” – says Katie.
Cleverly using the radiotelephony phonetic alphabet, Katie has designed an innovative collection of twenty-eight threads and patterns.
This beautiful range of colours lend a glimpse into Katie’s love of typography and vintage wartime, bringing the market a mix of rich printers inks, on trend metals of rose gold, copper and industrial steels, rusts and petinas; an eclectic mix to compliment any style and surrounding.
