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.

Flowers like this one form an integral part of the Tree of Life motif seen frequently in Jacobean design.

This design fits a 6" (15 cm) ring frame.  It is a perfect introduction to Jacobean for beginners or those who want a refresher.

The kit explores many different traditional crewel work stitches.

In the pack you get full instructions for each stitch, with tips on how to achieve the best results.

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.
