    Bayeux Animals, chart download - 162008D

    £6.00

    Stitch your way into history with this fascinating design based on the Bayeux Tapestry. The Tapestry – which is, in fact, embroidery and the longest piece in the world – depicts events, people and animals around the time of the Battle of Hastings, which everyone knows in 1066 on 14th October. When the Norman leader William beat the Saxon Harold it was the last time that England was invaded and conquered by a foreign army. The town of Hastings is trying to make Hastings Day a national holiday but, in the meantime, you can make these striking Bayeux animal motifs. Learn More

    Clarice Crocuses chart download - 250001D

    £6.00

    In 1928 Clarice Cliff added some bold and bright strokes of colour to a piece of pottery and the Crocus range was born. It was in production and for much of the following decade, twenty painters worked the design week in, week out. The hand painting was evident in the sumptuous petals which appealed to customers as well as range's cheerful colours. The crocuses have a folk art look which contrasts with Cliff's other designs in the Bizarre range. This wonderful trio will be perfect for any lover of antique ceramics or indeed for any home which will be enhanced with a touch of springtime colour. Learn More

    Steam Tractor, download - 112001D

    £6.00

    The first two decades of the last century saw the steam tractor in its heyday. Many were built for the War Department in the first instance then sold off after the First World War to local authorities, hauliers, quarry owners and growers of all kinds. Today, of course, they are treasured machines; immaculately kept by their owners and proudly shown off at events during the summer months throughout the British Isles. I would rather like to have a go at driving one, but suspect it is one of those things that is not at all easy. Safer perhaps to sit and stitch one. Learn More
  11. Victorian Tea Cups, download - MH20150023D

    Victorian Tea Cups, download - MH20150023D

    £6.00

    Catalogues of household goods from Victorian times have a grand choice of tea cups and saucers. They come in many shapes; rounded, fluted and squared with plain or fancy handles. Every household would have had their best tea set and others for everyday use. It seems a little sad that we have lost such decorative pieces in many of our houses today, so what better than a stitched picture to show off a handsome collection. The designs can be used individually for greetings cards and other similar items and are, of course, wonderful for using up oddments of threads. Learn More
