All the kits come with full written and pictorial instructions and of course a suitable needle to complete your project. The designs are based on period artwork, with Melbury Hill's own ideas and expressions.

Throughout the 17th century East Indian fortune-seekers came back to England laden with the
latest “must have” exotic textiles. After the oppression of the commonwealth years England
saw a surge of luxury goods to adorn the great houses of the time. Textiles famously portrayed
the tree of life design, worked in brilliant colours and incorporating many wonderful, real and
fanciful creatures.

I studied at the Royal School of Needlework, Hampton Court Palace, Uk. Since passing my apprenticeship with distinction, I've worked as a freelance textile and embroidery kit designer among other things including running a shop for five years, artist in Oils and Antique dealer.
