Mill Hill Button & Bead Kits

We LOVE these! We have almost 200 of them displayed on our "Great Wall." These complete kits are stitched on 14ct perforated paper, but we've chosen 28ct Natural Linen instead, because we wanted to make them into little hanging pillows! The designs cover the Four Seasons, Halloween & Christmas, Noah, Bees, Bunnies, Patriotic... just everything! Full of creative bead stitches and details, you'll love them, too!

Mill Hill kits are really a good value, because of the variety of things they contain. Each kit uses lots of different colors of glass beads (which run about $1.30 per color), numerous floss colors and ceramic or glass Treasure embellishments (these run between $2.50 and $5.00 each!!!). By the time you purchase everything 'open stock' you would have invested a small fortune.

But these little kits are all ready to go... and save the trouble of digging into and pulling from your stash! Whether you choose the Button & Bead, small ornament kits or mini-banded bell pulls... you're assured of accurate instructions, and enough materials to finish your project -- GUARANTEED!

Complete kits, except the angels, with the paper: $13.00 each.
Angel Kits: $13.00 (these include the 28 ct white fabric)
28Ct linen cuts: $4.05 ea.

Oh! And don't miss our new Designer's Showcase, where we feature all of the fabulous designs Mill Hill has commissioned as bead kits from outside artists!

Autumn 2014 Button & Bead Designs
JUST in the nick of time to get you ready for this Fall... Mill Hill has sent their newest Button & Bead kits! We love these... 5 x 5 classic designs that are worked on 14ct perforated paper with loads of DMC floss and MH's glass beads... they are always super eye-catching. Our shop models are all on linen... because we like to 'pillow' these instead of framing them.

Complete kits include the charts, paper, flosses, beads, a button and needles.
  • County Fair has the prize pie, pig, quilt, flowers and jams!!
  • Peek-a-Boo Pumpkin has a wild pumpkin -- neat border on that one.
  • Harvest House fits into MH's Country Lane series of houses... a village of houses and businesses that is year round -- not the Christmas Village.
  • Ravens is bold and full of personality -- everyone always likes the ones that feature that moonlight and shadowy sky.
  • White Pumpkins features another lavish and luscious border...
  • and Wanda's Witchery has a black kitty hiding in the potion room!

    Buttons & Beads -- Christmas & Winter 2013
    Mill Hill newest set of 5 x 5 Button and Bead kits are HERE!! I just love this year's set of designs...
  • Cool Quartet features a colony of penguins all dressed in their mittens and scarves to keep warm! Pretty icy blue and periwinkle colors.
  • Village Inn is another building in the Mill Hill Christmas Village Collection.
  • Chickadees is just lovely. Soft, woodsy colors, the brown and tan birds stand-out against the fresh snow.
  • Holiday Memories follows that same dusty color scheme -- the soft blue fence, and the tan house, the sled looks real!
  • Family Tree is the third that seems to go with the other two -- I'm still one of those 'real tree people', and this IS still how we bring home that tree!
  • Finally, Who Trio is just the cutest! Such rich reds and navy... if you don't think you can finish the entire thing... we think you can stitch those two front owls by themselves!
  • As always Mill Hill's Bead Kits are an awesome value -- complete kits contain the 14ct perforated paper (think about 28ct linen or 14ct Aida as softer fabric options), all the flosses, beads and button embellishments. Each finishes 5 x 5, and is offered separately.

    The Spring 2009 Button & Bead Collection from Mill Hill - click to see more
    The Spring 2009 Button & Bead Collection What an awesome collection of high-impact designs this Spring!!! Flowers and Vegetables... choose your theme and stitch all three (or six!) I personally love, love, love the vegetables, they are stitched on a very light green paper (or 28ct linen), and accented with all that shaded and stippled background. The flowers are all stitched on black paper -- very dramatic. (If black isn't kind to your eyes, think about a background color of fabric, and STITCH that thin black border around each design instead. Lots of ways around the 'black issue!')

    Lovely, crisp, fresh and contemporary designs this year... the colors are delicious... *Very Eyecatching!!!* Offered as the complete kit of chart, paper, flosses beads and button... each finishes approx 5 x 5. Our shop models are always on linen... so we can find some bright, fun colors if you'd like! So classy!


    Attention Bead-a-Holics!
    Mill Hill has released 33 new colors of beads! We haven't been treated to new colors of beads for at least 10 years... so this is quite the treat!!!!! I think all are $1.30 a pack... 7 new colors of the regular seed beads. 13 New colors of Antique Seed beads -- these are AWESOME, as they are matte metallic in finish. Just lovely, they all have 'Satin' in their name!!! Next, we have 5 new colors of the Petite beads, 8 new Pebble Bead colors, and one lonely size 8 color -- just a little larger than the regular size. We can't do drop downs for all 33... just thought you needed to know of their new release on the market!!! Very fun, I'd get all the Satins if I were you... as they are exquisite. Your stash can wait on the rest...!

Our shop models will be presented on 28ct linen, like always, so we've chosen fabric colors that match the original paper background colors. You're going to need all of these!!!
