Seasons Blackwork Embroidery Kit - UK Postage Only



Four blackwork cameos in one kit, each one adapted to reflect the four seasons in design and choice of amazing hand dyed Stef Francis fine perle embroidery threads. Simple back stitch is all that is required to complete this project and we have supplied the fabric as one piece so that you can stitch them as in the image or use your creative skills and create your own layout. Our spring design features flowers in shades of pink and purple combined with the juicy green of early spring leaves. In summer, flowers are joined by summer fruits in a wonderful thread that reflects the flamboyance of the season. Tone things down a little in autumn with more muted seasonal shades and a design featuring acorns and seed heads. Winter brings deep shades of red and green, the flowers turn to snowflakes adorning the branches of Yuletide foliage and berries. Of course, these designs can be used in your own pieces in whole or in part and they make a wonderful introduction to the art of blackwork embroidery. Complete instructions make this a mini course in its own right. The wonderful Stef Francis embroidery threads lend themselves perfectly to blackwork projects and each finished piece measures approx 7 x 6cm.

We do allow commercial use of our designs as long as the projects are hand made and that you acknowledge the Maire Curtis studio as the original source of the design.
