The term ‘crewel work’ means embroidery with crewel wool threads on any fabric. The word ‘Jacobean’ describes the style of the design - influenced by English crewel work designs of the early 17th century. Jacobean crewel work is always stitched on natural-coloured pure linen twill fabric.
This design is based on the traditional Tree of Life motif seen frequently in Jacobean design.
This design fits a 10" (25 cm) ring frame. It is a perfect continuation from beginner projects or for a more experienced embroiderer who wants to revisit the stitches.
The kit explores many different traditional crewel work stitches. In the pack you get full instructions for each stitch with close up photographs and tips on how to achieve the best results.
Choose from pink or purple wools (other colours available by request, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire).
Kit contains: linen twill fabric, crewel wool, needles, design and full instructions
The kit comes in a box which comes in handy for storage while you stitch the project. Fabric is wrapped in tissue to protect your embroidery.
