Mandala Embroidery Kit


This Mandala embroidery 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:

“The Mandala is the perfect shape to put many colourful stitches! I first designed this kit for my workshop students at Kendal. Once completed, you can play with the shapes and coloured threads to add different shapes – it’s very calming to doodle and let your needle wander.”

  • Coloured skeins of Appleton’s crewel embroidery wool thread.
