DRAGONFLY Kit of the Month


The Dragonfly is an intermediate Modern Jacobean technique.

The kit comes with instructions and diagrams for each stitch. The silk fabric comes with the design hand drawn on so there are no worries about transferring the design and the threads come wrapped on a long thread template which are numbered for your convenience.

Working the embroidery: A piece of metallic leather and organza fabrics are applied to a silk background fabric. A variety of different embroidery stitches are  worked on the design using DMC embroidery cotton and Kreinik Metallic thread. These combined with the needle lace wings on the dragonfly gives this traditional Jacobean design a modern touch.

I am offering free correspondence and free on going critique for this kit, for more details go to - Free on going critique.

I recommend stretcher bar frames to work Modern Jacobean in as you can get excellent tension on all four sides of the embroidery resulting in smoother stitches. For information about the frames visit my Embroidery Frames webpage. (Parcel Mail costs apply to stretcher bar frames).

All Modern Jacobean kits come with one No. 10 embroidery needle. As these fine embroidery needles can be difficult to come I have given you the option to order extra needles below.
