Herbaceous Borders – this design was stitched for my class at Annie’s Needle Arts Festival 2017, in Williamsburg, Virginia, USA. It is compatible with Embroidered Country Gardens series and is an alternative to the bigger pincushion in this range.
A design suitable for a beginner. It incorporates simple crewel stitches, using Perle 12, Perle 16 and /or stranded cottons. A full kit is provided is provided, which includes 14 full skeins of perle thread as well as cut lengths of stranded cotton, needles, the design screen printed onto linen/cotton blend fabric, muslin (calico) for backing, instructions, stitch glossary and colour photographs. The design measures 3″ or 7.5 cm in diameter. This design is worked in a 5″ or 12 cm hoop or frame.
All of my designer kits are beautifully packaged and presented in sturdy carrier bags, making them very suitable as gifts.
