Avlea embroidery hoop kit Arcadian Rose

Regular price $26.00
This beautiful design was inspired by a little Byzantine ornamented motif that was most likely used in either an illuminated manuscript or as part of a fresco decorative scheme. It features a lovely rose--reminiscent of a Tudor rose--in the center, encircled by a charming vine border. This is a terrific design for beginners as you learn five of the most common embroidery stitches. My high-quality kits include the design stamped with waterproof archival ink on 100% Kona cotton (so you can wash the design after if you like), DMC 100% cotton embroidery floss, John James size 7 embroidery needle, how to embroider instruction booklet, and a reusable stitch diagram (simply tape it to a window or lightbox and trace onto the fabric of your choice), and 6' bamboo embroidery hoop. Stitches: Backstitch, chain stitch, French knots. Finished size: 6 inches in diameter. These kits are 100% reusable or recyclable and packaged in environmentally friendly packaging (no plastic!).
