More Freedom Embroidery kit


This kit contains the materials you need to make the embroidery picture of the ‘More Freedom’, with guidelines, thread colour guide, photograph and ‘tips’ from Bridget, the designer.

You will also need to purchase the Quaker Tapestry Stitch Guide Book which will explain the process of pattern transfer and give you step-by-step instructions of each stitch.

A note from Bridget, the designer:  

“This is a popular kit, possibly because the woman on the bike was designed and embroidered by a child and it is a nice simple design to begin with. I have seen many delightful variations of this kit completed with flowers in the basket, flowers in her hat, cycling through falling autumn leaves, chased by a little dog, a larger basket – complete with newspaper and baguette…. enjoy adding your own ideas to really make it your own embroidery.”
