Bird on a Bough Kit
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.
