Butterfly Embroidery Kit


This Butterfly kit contains the materials you need to make this embroidery picture, with guidelines, thread colour guide, photographs and ‘tips’ from Bridget, the designer.

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

A note from Bridget, the designer:

“Butterflies conjure up images of sunshine – the warmth and colour of flowery meadows and summer gardens teaming with life. Transport yourself to this calm and peaceful scene as you embroider this little butterfly.”
