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.

This design fits an 8 " or 10 " (20 or 25 cm) ring frame. Some embroidery experience will prove helpful for this kit.

The kit explores a variety of different traditional crewel work stitches (4 outline stitches, long and short shading, satin stitch and 6 decorative stitches).

In the box 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 presentation box for handy storage.  Fabric is wrapped with acid-free tissue to protect your embroidery project and shred paper prevents the contents moving about too much.
