Feels like being next to Phillipa

I am located in Costa Rica and it feels like Phillipa was next to me. This is a perfect class that successfully covers every stich of the project since the ensemble of the frame all the way till blocking the finished piece. In simple words marvelous, you can work enjoying every step and each session is explained perfectly. I recommended that if you are looking for the perfect technique of Crewel to buy these classes of The Crewel Work Company without hesitation.
Thanks, Phillipa for this opportunity and for such an amazing gift with this work of art.

I loved working this kit! It's framed and hung and gorgeous!

Beautiful

My parcel arrived earlier this week and I just wanted to say how absolutely beautiful everything is. The kits, the linen, the wools…the wools!!.......the book, the starter kit, the presentation…
An older friend who is an experienced needlewoman was here for dinner last night. She also was blown away by the high quality of everything I received from you. We spent about an hour oohing and aahing over my lovely bagful and your website.

Wow!

My parcel arrived earlier this week and I just wanted to say how absolutely beautiful everything is. The kits, the linen, the wools…the wools!!.......the book, the starter kit, the presentation…I felt positively reverent slowly opening each part and examining it in great detail before moving on to the next piece.

Lovely

I thoroughly enjoyed completing the project. My only disappointment is to find out that the transfer does not disappear with the application of water (in the blocking). It is printed in blue as if it should be - why isn't it?? Also there is sufficient wool supplied to do more than 1 project - a transfer of the designs could also be available for those who want them.

Love following the history enjoy Jacobean piece. Look forward to doing more

Rabbits Kit

This is my second Rabbits kit. I am using one kit to practice the basic stitches as this is first time embroidery for me. I am finding the instructions very useful and also the video invaluable.

Mother's day iris

The course is wonderful! Listening to Phillips carefully explain each stitch makes it seem simple. I love listening as I stitch! What a gift!

Not just for beginners!

I purchased this set even though I have been stitching for years and have a lot of "equipment." I wanted an "away" set for classes, holidays, etc. The frame, scissors, twizzler, etc., guarantees that I don't forget essentials, and who can't use some extra twill, needles and wools, plus the other treats in the set? It was a lovely gift to myself of a selection of top quality items!

Enchanting book!

I so enjoyed this book! The notes on and photos of the castles and stately homes that have inspired Phillipa in her work are amazing.

Pomagranites online course

Well, this course was wonderful. Not only did I learn how to get my linen drum tight but all the stitches, the hints and tips, were extremely clear. Thank you Phillipa.

I love the whole kit thank you

Beautiful kit!

Excellent

Just completed my first kit - a joy. Thank you.

Wonderful Kit - as always!

My Muncaster Bed Hanging kit arrived beautifully packaged, as always. This is the 7th kit I have bought from CWC and they never fail to please. I love the little extras such as the embroidery scissors etc. Excellent kits and excellent service. I can't wait to get started!

Great

This is a course for which I bought second linen. The first I used silk from my stash. The second will be done in wool as per course. Fantastic as always.

Just started this and I'm looking forward. Following the video as well so that I get every stitch as exact as I can (this time, I've completed the Jacobean fantasy really badly- but it was my first one! Hoping to buy a seconds.)

Excellent kit

The standard of presentation of this kit is excellent. The quality of the threads etc is also excellent.

Looking forward to starting the beautiful piece

Perfect kit to begin with

I stitched this after enrolling in a course to follow along with Phillipa last year. I love it and am proud of how it turned out. Covers a lot of basic stitches. I still need to block and frame it.

Beautiful book

Lovely to see the original designs of several of my Crewel Work Company embroidered cushions - highly recommend

The Scottish Play Kit

My favorite kit ever

There is so much to do, and the design is so fanciful, that it was a constant joy to create. I love the feeling of being connected here with a bit of history.

Fabulous Project and Instructor/ not great video

I’ve just finished this project and enjoyed it immensely. The video instructions is rather lacking however. It rarely showed the very close up images one relies on in a good embroidery course so that was quite frustrating. Zina is an excellent instructor so listening to her and reading the written instructions made it good enough, but I was disappointed. Also, I couldn’t figure out how to jump to specific chapters/sections of the video. Maybe it was me but it didn’t appear to be an option like you can on the YouTube videos and RSN courses. I will say however that this is the most gorgeous beginners Goldwork project I’ve seen out there so I’d still recommend it and the kit itself is top notch!
