In 2016 we were honoured with the opportunity to exhibit at the Chelsea Flower
Show, the most prestigious horticultural event in the world.
The show gave us the perfect platform to showcase out botanical needlepoint kits, visitors responded enthusiastically and our customers enjoyed us sharing our
experience online so we engaged them both in a fun idea. While exhibiting at the
first show in 2016, head designer, Vernon Kirk, came up with the idea to create a
series of kits based on the main show gardens - our Kirk & Bradley for Elizabeth
Bradley Chelsea Garden Kits were launched! We choose a selection of top show gardens and hold a vote, the winning garden then becomes the muse for the annual kit that we release at the next years show.
The Chelsea Garden kits are a collection of 6 designs, each inspired by the Chelsea Flower Show, also directly inspired by the show is the The Chelsea Poppy Mini Kit and a series of Pensioner mini kits – The Colonel, The Major, and The Brigadier. Attending the Chelsea Flower Show allows us to combine our love of gardens with meeting our customers face to face, all whilst gathering inspiration for future designs.
They are all absolutely stunning and great to embroider. Keep up this initiative!
