Tara Dragonfly Modern Goldwork Embroidery (Navy Blue) - UK ONLY

Tara dragonfly goldwork project


Designed for the Craft Sanctuary retreat in February 2017, this sparkling dragonfly with iridescent lacy wings was an instant hit.

Everything you need to complete this design (apart from the hoop) is in the pack and you can choose either a navy blue or burgundy duchess satin.

The design is hand drawn onto the fabric so you can begin embroidering straight away.

Traditional goldwork threads and wires are accompanied by stunning modern metallics, beads and sequins.

All presented in a resealable bag which you can use to keep your work clean as you stitch.

Vegans can also enjoy stitching this work as we use a lovely soft faux metallic leather which looks just like the real thing.

Finished design measures approx. 16 x 16cm on a piece of fabric approx 25 x 25cm so you have plenty of scope to mount and frame your finished design or use it on another project such as a box lid cover.

Full instructions are included but if you get stuck Maire will be quite happy to assist via the 'Ask a question'.

This kit makes a lovely gift for a friend or loved one.

Experience level – Intermediate (You will need to have some basic experience in goldwork).

sandra Johnston - - #32322

This kit caught my eye when I saw it on Craft Courses, it looked so pretty and fresh colours. I received mine very quickly and it is so nicely packaged and a good deal of fabric and other embellishments too. I set great store by how things I buy are packaged up and this was really good.

I since ordered another kit to go direct to a friend and like with me she received it very quickly and is delighted with it.

Thank you Maire for such a lovely kit

Craft kit
Louise C - - #32012

This kit arrived earlier this week and is nicely packaged and has everything needed to make the item.
The instructions look clear and the end product looks like it will be beautiful (depending on my skill!).
The only reason I didn't give this 'excellent' is due to the fact that there's no print out for the stitches required, I'm going to look them up on YouTube as I think I know what I'm doing, but a simple print out showing how to do these stitches would be useful for others.
Overall, I'd buy this kit again, or another kit from the same maker.

Response from Maire Curtis Lakeland Studio:

Hello Louise,
Thank you for your feedback and I am glad you are pleased with your kit.
I have noted your comment about the stitch guide but we do state that prior knowledge of the stitches is required so I will attempt to make this clearer on the item description.
Many thanks and happy stitching.
