Floral Embroidery Kit - Spell One: Inspiration

Regular price $28.95 Sale

This special edition kit was created as a part of the Twist X Designers series for the fabulous Festival Twist, Canada's biggest fibre festival.

We were thrilled to be paired with embroiderer and educator Maude Levasseur, who created a pattern for you to create as a kind of spell for your creative space.  Featuring dandelion, verbana and laurel, stitch these protective plants with 100% naturally dyed thread, and make a little magic.

This kit includes everything you need to make your own embroidery.  The floss comes undyed, and the instructions included will guide you through the steps to dye  eight magical colours, using only three dyestuffs, and a combination of mordants and exhaust baths to create a full range of shades.

Perfect for those who are new to natural dyeing, the kit will lead you through the several steps to mordant and dye your skeins of floss.  You will end up with 8 shades, as pictured in the fourth photo.

Included are all the tools to create the floral embroidery of your choice, or download Maude's pattern to create the one in the photo.   No embroidery pattern is included in the kit.  Full instructions for dyeing are included.

- size 7 embroidery/crewel needle, size 10 beading needle
