New! This design is now currently published in the beautiful new book from Inspirations – A PASSION FOR NEEDLEWORK – where this is one of 12 projects featured. I am therefore now under contractual obligations so this is no longer available online.
Berries for the Birds stumpwork pincushion was designed to encourage beginners to try their hand at stumpwork embroidery. The pincushion is pictured on a medium sized oak pincushion.
This is a full stumpwork kit designed for a beginner, who has some knowledge of embroidery stitches. Careful step by step instructions take the embroiderer through a number of techniques specific to stumpwork embroidery. If you are an embroiderer keen to learn about this form of 17th century embroidery, this contemporary piece will guide you through covering wires, needlelace techniques, and covering beads.
This complete kit is screened (printed) onto a high quality linen/cotton blend fabric. It contains all the threads, needles, beads for acorns, beads, wires, muslin (calico) for backing, instructions, photograph and stitch glossary necessary to complete the design. It includes a medium sized pincushion.
Size: 7 cm ( 3″) approx. Also suitable for framing.
All of my designer kits are beautifully packaged and presented in sturdy carrier bags, making them very suitable as gifts.
