PATCH FLORA – REDWORK KITS
The traditional craft of Redwork has been around for over a hundred years and lives up to its name by being worked all in one colour thread, namely red! Of course there is nothing to stop you using another colour, but keep all the stitching in whatever colour you do choose. A design is embroidered through American muslin and a compressed wadding simultaneously. When embroidery is finished the work is often ‘antiqued’ by tea-dyeing it before making up.
Kits contain a full size working diagram, complete instructions on how to work the design and embroidery stitch diagrams, plus materials to work the design only.
