Projects by Size: Which is right for you?

The Elizabeth Bradley line features a vast collection of traditional & contemporary needlework designs, with new kits added annually.  Each kit includes a precision stitch-printed canvas, full-colour chart card, wool colour code card, 100% pure virgin Elizabeth Bradley tapestry wool, and high quality tapestry needles. We offer a variety of kits in several different sizes to fit an array of project needs. 

Carpets are considered to be the ultimate challenge for an EB stitcher. Because of the varying levels of complexity for a carpet, they can also create an heirloom wall hanging or framed piece.  The chart below compares each size category for a better look at what can be accomplished when stitching a new kit:

I love the 16 x16 size! Cry good for cushions and I am a great fan of the «  Chelsea gardens » I can’t wait to discover the new one ! But I’d like to discover more exotic patterns ( such as the birds) with a lot of bright colours ( as in Chelsea gardens)
