Nancy Nicholson Embroidery Kits

"Hand-stitched whimsy."

In these darling embroidery kits, Nancy Nicholson gives you the tools and guidelines you need to build your stitching confidence, leaving enough room for you to brandish your unique creativity.

We’ve picked out a few birdie designs—two small samplers (perfect for framing, adornments, or small sachets) and a kit of three folk bird ornaments (to hang wherever you like or decorate a special gift). We’ve also selected a darling teapot sampler! In each sampler tote you will find threads, instructions for the embroidery stitches, a stitch map to help you around, and the individual design printed onto a cotton/linen blend fabric. In the bird ornament kit, you’ll find three colors of woollen felt, stranded embroidery thread, ribbon for hanging, the pattern and instructions, a stitch guide to help you around, and the necessary needle.

Nancy Nicholson grew up surrounded by visual art—her father was a fine artist and noted wallpaper designer, her mother a leading figure in the revival of stitch crafts. This extraordinary combination of talent, honed by studies in graphic design and a degree in Fine Art Textiles at the Royal College of Art, is evident in Nancy’s charming designs.
