More About Our Company

At Tristan Brooks we strive to give you two things – quality designs and quality stitching supplies. When I established Tristan Brooks back in 1982, I wanted to use 17th and 18th century needlework as my inspiration. Other styles have come and gone, but I have persevered. Sharp needle embroidery, especially crewel, is my passion, as are the wonderful new thread choices now available.
