Tree of Life Crewel Embroidery Kit
Tree of Life Crewel Embroidery Kit

The Tree of Life design is symbolic of eternal life throughout the world. This charming scene includes the two intertwining trees with exotic and British plants, vines, flowers, a hound, and rabbits, all in an idyllic scene reminiscent of the Jacobean era in the 17th Century. Stitches and colours from this time are used in this design.

Suitable for: Advanced embroiderers

Kit Includes: Pure linen twill, 23 Appletons crewel wools, 5 x needles (for double and single thread, plus a beading needle), beads for the eye, a 20-page stitch instruction booklet, 2 x A3 stitch charts, an A3 colour poster, and our 'Essential Guide to Crewel Work' booklet

Design size: 55 x 40 cm (22 x 16 in)
Linen size: 71 x 55 cm (28 x 22 in) 

Stitches: Crewel Stem Stitch, Long & Short as ‘soft shading’, Seeding, Padded Satin, Closed Fly, French Knots, and Laid & Couched Work

Frames, scissors and finishing materials are not included in your kit. To stitch your design, you will therefore also need:

1. An embroidery frame of your choice (such as a Seat, Floor or Slate Frame)
2. A pair of embroidery scissors


We recommend the Elbesee Seat Frame, which we sell in our store with three different sized hoops. You can buy the Seat Frame here or as part of our Starter Sets, which you can combined with your kit purchase and receive 10% off the total.

We are passionate about keeping embroidery alive, a living art form which new generations are inspired to try.

The countless benefits of practicing embroidery include lowering blood pressure, regulating breath, calming the nervous system, and providing an excellent excuse to form deep social bonds with friends, family and your local community.

If you want to experience some of the same benefits of practicing embroidery and think this might be the kit for you, please reach out to us and let us know how it helped you!

Tree of Life Kit

The Tree of Life kit was beautifully presented in a box that withstood being shipped to the US. The linen is of good quality and the design printed on it is crisp and clear. The Appleton wool is of superb quality and a delight to stitch with. The instructions and charts included are easy to follow.
