Learn Crewel Work
Step-by-step with Phillipa Turnbull
This was a linen only purchased in Australia, as I am a relative beginner, and so just used leftover wool in the stash. So relaxing and rewarding to stitch! I am now a CWC convert.
Lovely materials, clear instructions and a good introduction to crewel. It was my first project and, it happens, a good choice. I love the design, it looks to me like a pesky deer eating away at my garden.
I love it. This is my first kit. The instructions are very good and easy to follow. I would like to get the Scottish play if you get it back in stock. I am really enjoying working on this kit and will be getting more.
I received this course, alongside the kit, as a present after starting crewelwork several months ago and can honestly say its one of the best presents I've ever had, The tips and techniques I learnt on the course have taken my crewel obsession to the next level and the difference between my pre and post course pieces is very noticeable. It was easy to follow and an absolute joy with the benefit of being able to watch it in manageable chunks which would have been lost in a face to face environment. It would have been as beneficial even if I'd not got the accompanying kit. I can't recommend this course highly enough

For two hand stitching, it's great to use the barrel clamp for when you don't want to sit and stitch without worrying where your work is. I have it attached to my desk keyboard tray and listen / watch Youtube videos on stitching. Need to get a better chair and the setup will be perfect. Thank you so much
Hello Philippa, Denise from your class in Nelson many years ago. This kit is absolutely gorgeous. We have a 9 year old West Highland Terrier, would u consider doing a Beginners Kit?
I don’t like the topic but do love the overall sense of movement in the piece. So pleased that the Hunter is a rotten shot
I love that they are so smooth and sharp pointed
A beautiful piece of work!
Received the Rowan tree kit and was blown away by the presentation. Like a jewel box. I haven’t started yet but hope to soon. The fabric is absolutely lovely and the threads are a joy. I have some liberty of London fabric which will finish the project perfectly. Thank you so much
Excellent! Sara is terrific! Learn a lot!
As I am working on other projects at this time, I have yet to start the Elizabethan Oakapple, but I am more than impressed by the beautiful colours of the wools & accompanying materials.
I haven’t received the kit yet
