Kit Fee $65.00



Skill Level:
All Levels

Description:
Father Christmas is made with hand dyed wool on antique linen. Perfect if you are a beginner to wool applique or a seasoned stitcher. The wool is all hand dyed, felted and ready for the needle. The best part is the fabulous linen that we have found. Imported from Europe, it is estimated that this beautiful fabric was hand woven sometime between 1870 and 1910. While I stitch my samples on antique linen it is not uncommon to find the long pieces of flax that did not get removed during the carding process. 100 years ago that could have been a problem....for me it is a bonus!! Please understand that the linen that may come in your kit may look different from the sample. I never know what I will have available but be assured that it will be from the same time period and I do my best to find it in the same size. Finished piece measures approx 18" x 24".
