I have not started it yet
I loved my Mellerstain Stag kit. It is so lovingly packaged. The quality of all the components is exquisite. It will be a treasured piece for sure.
Exactly what I needed. I searched the Internet endlessly to find the perfect item for my gold embroidery. A hoop for two hands avalable.
So much fun to stitch. Kit arrived in the most beautiful packaging. The wool yarns are dyed beautifully. Pattern is printed well and easy to read on the linen and the added booklets are thorough/detailed with colored photos which I prefer. All in all a very well thought out kit!! Thank you Crewel Work Company!!
This is my first order from The Crewel Work Company and I am amazed at how beautifully packaged and presented the kit is. It also has very detailed instruction booklets - one is general info on crewel embroidery techniques and one on the actual Rowan Tree kit. It was such a beautiful Christmas present to receive, I am delighted and would recommend 100%
I received my kit in December and am now beginning to work on it. I am familiar with classical silk embroidery with the various stitches, also some experience in watercolour painting. I am so enjoying the crewel work - was never pleased with how the water coloured art looked and I did not like the restrictions I found in needlework. This crewel work really ticks the box for me. structured with a possibility of individual design. Many thanks.
I loved making the cards. I haven’t sent them yet but I will be.
After buying a similar item through an online store, I was disappointed with the inferior quality of the item. A friend recommended the Crewel Work Company as a reliable source for everything embroidery related and I was not disappointed. I would have no hesitation in ordering from this company again.
Beautiful presented kit. Instructions really clear and stitch combination lovely
Haven’t received kit as yet due to problems with all devices- even the new one!
To say I’m thrilled about this kit is an understatement. Every time I look at the pattern, yarns, etc. I get a thrill. My slate frame arrived a few days ago and I have been relishing every moment of setting it up and dressing it. My mom was very instrumental in enabling the purchase of this kit for me and I will always be grateful to her for that. Thank you to everyone at the Crewel Work Co. for all of your dedication, hard work and inspiration/perspiration that make this kit and all your other goodies available to us lucky folks! Humbly yours, Stacey Totzke
The fabric is very nice quality and the size is perfect. Happy I bought it.
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.
This kit is beautifully presented with all you need. The linen is superb and the Appleton wool is of the highest quality. The instructions included are very clear and easy to follow.
I received my King Ho Ho set a few days ago and i’m over the moon with it. it’s absolutely gorgeous and I haven’t even started embroidering yet. The colours are deep and beautiful, the whole set is more than complete, with 2 information booklets, needles etc. and it all comes in a gorgeous box. It really is a beautiful present for myself! Maybe the best thing is the accessibility of the text and the ‘enjoy, this is not a test!’. I really needed that. Philippa makes you feel she is in the room with you and you’re just embroidering away and she gives (even me!) the feeling that I can create such a beautiful piece.
