We are delighted to bring you this vibrant Jacobean design as an advanced crewel work kit.
During our research we have encountered this same late-17th Century design on bed hangings in six different locations. Some of these examples are now held in museums in the UK, America and Australia, while others are still in their original castles and private houses.
We really hope you enjoy working through the diverse historic crewel techniques featured within it and it becomes an heirloom of your own.

Purchase options for this kit:
Starter Set - With this package you will receive all the tools need to get going straight away - your kit plus the usual inclusions, a seat frame with three different sized hoops, a wonderfully sharp pair of scissors, and sturdy forever bag printed our restoration pillowe design.
Kit only - If you already have a frame and scissors, you'll be needing the kit on its own. All of our kits come with plenty of wools to complete the design with some left over. If you find you do run out of any colour (or a dog happens to chew one!) remember that we send up to 5 extra wools free of charge.
Printed Linen only - If you would rather use up your own stash of wools or if you've simply done so many of our kits that you don't need to read the instructions any more, this option is for you! Your linen will come ready-printed with the design outline. Also included is one each of our specialist Crewel needles.
