RSN Studio: The Nation’s Garden – Flower Emblems from the United Kingdom

£180.00

15 DECADES OF EMBROIDERY
The RSN Embroidery Studio has produced a series of 15 kits - one for each of the 15 decades since the founding of the Royal School of Needlework. The kit designs are taken from our archives and have been developed in a range of techniques and levels for embroiderers to enjoy and learn.
This design is inspired by a painted canvas designed to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II in 1977, originally produced by the Royal School of Needlework Paint Room. Hand painted canvases were very popular for many years and the RSN Embroidery Studio still produces them on commission. Most painted canvases would have been completed entirely in Tent Stitch.
In this kit, elements from the original design have been reworked into a combination of counted patterns and surface stitches, adding insects reminiscent of those included in the 2023 Coronation Robe of Her Majesty Queen Camilla.
THIS KIT CONTAINS:
22-count Aida background fabric 15 balls of DMC Perle 8
4 Skeins of DMC stranded thread Embroidery and tapestry needles
You will also need a slate frame or roller frame (minimum 18-inch) and embroidery scissors
HAND MADE IN THE UK
