  • What's included?
  • This kit will teach you the four essential embroidery stitches that will equip you to create any classic crewel work design.

    I have created this kit with newcomers to crewel embroidery in mind but have enjoyed it so much myself that I am now creating my fourth Tumbling Feathers cushion for my own sitting room. The design, colours and stitches are all true to the late-Victorian/Arts & Crafts era when ostrich feathers were all the rage!

    Crewel Stem, French Knots, Laid and Couched Work and a really clear and easy Long and Short as ‘soft shading’ in soft pastel shades
