Christmas Cards

Part of the joy of Christmas giving comes in the form of Christmas cards. You just never know whose day you can make that tiny little bit more cheerful, with a personal note.

The stitch detail of the Quaker Tapestry, and its inspired embroidery designs, reproduce beautifully in our cards. Send a little bit of stitched beauty this year with our Prism and Robin designs.

Robin, stood on it’s snow covered branch, is an ideal Christmas card.

Bridget Guest, designer of the Robin embroidery, says…

“There were so many Christmas cards that featured little robins in one form or another – drawings, paintings and photographs… they all had snow of course. I found a photograph of this lively little robin, which captures the movement perfectly, that was my starting point. The branch was inspired by the wonderful tree on the final panel of the Quaker Tapestry – World Family of Friends”

Prism, with it’s bright colours and gold detail, making it a cheerful Christmas card.

Creating a diffusion of coloured light springing from one source, symbolising diversity and the richness of the individual experience. The wonder of seeing the colours of the rainbow is one we all can share. The experience often has a magical quality to it as though it is stirring some deep inner response. This design is a detail from one of the 77 Quaker Tapestry panels, by the same name.

Quaker Tapestry greetings cards are all blank inside, making them suitable for many occasions.
