This is the complete embroidery kit presented in a lovely box contains everything you need to sew the large cross stitch pattern on tinctorial plants created by Frederique Crestin-Billet. This kit is one of several in the Museums and Heritage series, dedicated to the discovery of the history of the French textile industry. The link between flowers and textiles is directly connected to dyeing! It is such a vast subject that it would be impossible to cover all the plants used for textile dyeing. This provides us with a great excuse to propose some beautiful flowers to embroider. The back of the pattern chart has a brief history of each of the plants. The kit contains all of the threads that you need and the ribbons not only give a whimsical touch to the embroidery, but also show a sample of the colors obtained by each flower.
This pattern chart measures 68 x 80cm, (about 24" x 31.5" making the motifs easy to follow. It is printed on matte paper, enabling you to mark any reference points you may need.
Apart from botanical details about the plants, the back of this chart contains all the necessary explanations for the embroidery and ribbons.
Size of motif: 345 x 345 points.
