I just finished this kit and want to note doing a single color kit is very different. It was easy to pick up and put down during a very busy time. Some new stitches that kept it interesting but overall a calming experience. Great quality as always.
Having sat around I finaly finished this wonderful complex kit. Do not let complex put you off the instructions make every step clear so dive in. Plenty of wool. The photo is before blocking asnd framing.
I have not as yet received this item. I need it and have been looking for it every day.
The kit arrived two days ago; I had been waiting with anticipation. When I opened the box and saw the beautiful fabric, the finishes to the fabric, and how the kit is put together with instructions I couldn't believe it. It was beautifully put together, now I have to work up the courage to begin and hope I can do justice to the materials.
Thank you for such a beautiful kit and surprise.
The kit, A Hunting We Will Go is just beautiful.
I couldn't ask for anything more it's so perfect.
It arrived in Canada in short order and I can’t wait to start it! Thank you
I just received the kit -the delay due to cyber attack on Royal Mail. It looks wonderful and excited to start working on it.
To place a deposit allows the company in the ordering of product. Paying the balance later gives chance to gather funds.
After delivery being delayed by the post office, my package arrived yesterday and I'm anxious to get started, which I will do as soon as I finish a smocked baby dress for a friend. Phillipa and Frankie have been just wonderful trying to track down issues while the PO went on strike, then apparently was hacked and international deliveries were delayed. I just need to decide what I will do with this project once I have it finished.
I was distressed that such an expensive present took three months to arrive, and I began to doubt the validity of this company, but the customer service people worked with me and were very helpful. I had not realized that there were issues with the royal mail at the time I ordered. The kit arrived very late and is everything that it should be. I really encourage American customers to pay for tracking! The product itself is of excellent quality and worth the wait.
I don't think I have ever stitched such a delightful design as this!. It's really so pretty with the gold threads glistening through the silk on the hillock, and the lovely delicate little antlers sparkling too. I really loved the class as well, absolutely adore Mandy, and the instruction booklet was perfectly done to add in the extra details I needed to refer to. Just totally perfect all round, thank you to all, and more please!
The charming Ophelia's Fox is one of two designs my daughter chose herself, (along with Elizabethan Iris) for me to make for her. And she already has Mellerstain Stag and American Rose (made by me) on her walls. I haven't yet started Ophelia's Fox as I'm now working on Lady Anne's Flowers for my daughter's partner. What an exciting year is ahead of me, with so many of your exquisite kits lined up!
I'm so excited to receive The Tree of Life kit.
The kit is lovely and the quality is outstanding, it's precisely what we’ve all come to expect from The Crewel Work Company over the years.
I really love your company and products. I have NEVER had a bad experience with any kit I have gotten and the finished product is so beautiful even when I wasn't sure of what I was doing. Your instructions and willingness to help with any issue is rare in retail today and I am thankful that you do your job with excellence!
This is my first ever piece of crewel work, and I am so pleased I decided to purchase the online course, as well as the kit. There is just so much more information, hints, tips and expertise to apply in future from the course, than from the - albeit clear and precise - kit instructions. Gave me much more confidence going forward, to tackle the bigger project I also purchased (Tree of Life firescreen kit). Really made the whole stitching experience come to life! Highly recommend taking a course, rather than just getting a kit.
