Academy Collection
Box contents

Traditional is new again this fall. The fall florals in rich jewel tones that Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana sent down the runway inspired our sweetly feminine needlepoint that is sure to be a perennial favorite. Projects range from folk-inspired tassels to delicate jeweled bracelets. A few are even begging to be monogrammed.

In This Collection


Academy Threaded Bracelet

Three tonal shades of blue are more than the sum of their parts in this delicate bracelet. Make one bracelet with all three colors or use each stone to create three separate layering bracelets in a mashup of colors. Sometimes the chicest bracelet stack is the tiniest. Feel free to share if you're feeling generous.


Huntington Key Ring

As the seasons change we always love to switch things up a bit. We reorganize and regroup. A few new pencils and a new fall bag can make a girl feel prepared to take on anything the season throws her way. Rather than invest in a new bag add a folk-inspired tassel key ring to accessorize your accessory.

We used saffron thread to create the tassel but any color works. Use several shades of a color to take your tassel to the next level. Add your own charms or beads to personalize your key fob.


Deerfield Tech Case

Cozy up with this felted wool case for your tech devices. It's just begging to be monogrammed with a few stitches in a contrasting color. Included in the September box is enough wool for a few cases so you can make one to keep and one to give or outfit all your gadgets in coordinating gear.

We used the saffron thread with the grey felt on the exterior but you could easily mix and match colors.


Fitzgerald Floral Embroidery

Both Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana sent sweetly feminine needlepoint florals down the runway and we can't get enough of this look. There is enough linen in the September box to curl up with on several chilly fall weekends if you'd like to try a few different color combinations. Keep the floral in the embroidery hoop and hang it directly on the wall or cut out the flower and stitch it to a sweater.
