'Butterfly' Introduction to Silk & Goldwork Embroidery Kit
Fits 8 inch (20cm) hoop
Suitable for beginners
The word ‘goldwork’ is used to describe embroidery with metal threads and wires, even if they are not gold! This technique has a long history all over the world; originally reserved for items of state and ceremony, now it can be enjoyed by everyone.
Some threads are stitched over to secure them to the fabric, others are cut and stitched through - like beads.
This design fits in an 8 inch ring frame and is ideal as a first step into goldwork, and an introduction to surface stitches and appliqué.
The kit explores couching, chipping, and surface embroidery techniques including crewel work.
In the box you get full instructions for each stitch, with tips on how to achieve the best results.
Kit contains: silk fabric and calico backing, perle cotton embroidery thread, crewel wool, Japanese thread, bright check, sewing thread, needles, design and full instructions.
The kit comes in a presentation box for handy storage. Fabric is wrapped with acid-free tissue to protect your embroidery project.
Please note, background fabric may vary in colour.
