Suitable for more experienced stitchers
This kit includes 18 count canvas, a colour block chart, detailed instructions, Appletons crewel wool, and a suitable needle. Fine thread to make the fringe is also included. When finished, the stitched area measures 10 x 6¼ inches (25.5 x 15.5 cm) (adding a fringe will increase the length of the carpet by about 3/4 of an inch).
Style: Georgian (1714 – 1830) / Aubusson (French)
This is a new colourway of the popular ‘Lilian’ Aubusson carpet. Aubusson carpets such as this were manufactured in France from the 1740’s onwards. They tended to be generously proportioned, as they were often commissioned by wealthy patrons who had large rooms to fill.[See also: other kits in matching design]
