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.

The Tree of Life is a very important part of Jacobean design, showing the influence of Eastern style on British fashion in the 17th century.  Many of these designs feature the pomegranate which is a symbol of prosperity and fertility.

This design fits a 10" (25 cm) ring frame.  A little embroidery experience may prove helpful for this kit but a confident beginner will learn a lot.

The kit explores many different traditional crewel work stitches.

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

Kit contains:  linen fabric, crewel wool, 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.
