Wonderful! When you do the color matching for the kits, are you able to determine the original colors— or do you have to match to the way they have changed over time? How different are the colors on the front versus the back (lined) side of the original?

Magnificent! Should you ever be in Stockport, or Stafford, or the Potteries, do visit Staircase House, the Ancient High House, or Ford Green Hall, to see the replica bed hangings and bed covers, worked by the volunteer groups, the Staircase Stitchers, the Borough Broderers and the Ford Green Threaders over the last thirty years.
So wonderful to take stitchers through the historical techniques and see them recreate textiles for the local historic buildings.
The current project is a hanging, on scarlet Melton cloth, with gold work and needlepoint octagons, to hang above the High Table in the Great Hall at Bramall Hall.
Your Muncaster project is just beautiful.
