A note from Bridget, the designer:  

This is a popular embroidery workshop kit, possibly because the lady 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 French loaf…. enjoy adding your own ideas to really make it your own embroidery.


This is a beginner’s embroidery kit. The lettering can be tricky to master so you will certainly need the Quaker Tapestry Stitch Guide Book for step by step instructions with the lettering.
