New! This design, as featured in the beautiful new book from Inspirations – A PASSION FOR NEEDLEWORK where this is one of 12 projects featured, – is now available to purchase from me.
Berries for the Birds stumpwork was designed to encourage beginners to try their hand at stumpwork embroidery.
This stumpwork kit is 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. The kit includes the design screened onto a high quality linen/cotton blend fabric, muslin for backing, instructions, photograph and stitch glossary necessary to complete the design. Size: 7 cm ( 3″) approx.
All of my pattern and print kits are beautifully packaged in cellophane bags, making them very suitable as gifts.
