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.

    This piece is darling! Just what I needed to get back into crewel embroidery. I'm a little out of practice. Thank you for the fast shipping.
