Mountmellick Whitework Embroidery Kit



Mountmellick whitework embroidery originated in Mountmellick in Ireland. It is a beautiful textural raised technique, designed to be used and washed over and over again. Suitable for beginners. Your finished embroidery can be made into a lovely cushion, or bag (instructions not included) - a talking point whenever it's seen! All my kits are packaged using recyclable and/or biodegradable materials.

All kept tidy in a neat little box. The finished embroidery measures 14cm high by 11.5cm wide.
