A stunning Carol Singers Winter scene, antique linen embroidery piece from the talented Nicki Franklin at The Stitchery based in Castle Ashby.
As a beginner myself, I found these so easy to do and such a peaceful way to pass the time.
In this kit you will find a 10” square piece of linen printed centrally. (This design is slightly larger than the others hence the price) You will also be given the threads and instructions on how to complete the design, and if you need help, Nicki offers tutorials via her website.
Deceptively simple, this kit is perfect for beginners as the piece is worked largely in split stitch, back stitch and whipped stitches. There are a few French knots here and there which are relatively easy to master.
To complete the kit you will also need a packet of needles (a size 5 is a good all-rounder for beginners), a pair of small, sharp, needlework scissors and 5” embroidery hoop.
