I have wanted this canvas for a long time but this holiday, I took the plunge! When the box arrived, I found that it was so very thorough with everything I needed to complete the project along with sheets of instruction and sample cards of the background wool. However, I discovered that I had two of the same sample cards so called to ask if the other could be sent. During the conversation, the very knowledgeable and helpful associate not only offered to send me the other sample card but said she would include a small canvas with wool for me to try a few Victorian cross stitches before tackling the larger project. When the envelope arrived, I found that she had already stitched a few examples to illustrate the stitch while leaving me room to practice. Top notch customer service all the way!!!
I’ve been to the Elizabeth Bradley studio in Whales, and have made a six square and border rug. Really enjoy doing the projects.
The quality as always is superb and the colors of the Parrot tulip are so beautiful. I have so enjoyed working on this one.
Am really enjoying sewing this tapestry. The colours are so vibrant and look stunning on the black background. Your kits have saved my sanity during lockdown whether sewing listening to an audio book, the radio, or the TV. Even better with a glass of wine. Sewing is so relaxing and you are in your own little world blocking out the horrendous gloomy news at the moment. So thank you to all the team who have advised and helped me along the way. Have completed 3 of the seasonal samplers, just Winter to go, but I fancied a change hence the parrot tulip. They are my favourite tulip and I grow them in my garden.
So to all the team at Elizabeth Bradley and all the wonderful sewers out there Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.xxx
During Covid lockdowns, the two shell kits became a great source of comfort, distraction and joy. I found the experience of working on them like a meditation - so calming and rewarding. In the last month, I sent both completed pieces to be made up by the Elizabeth Bradley (EB) team in Wales. What a great group of people they are. I just received the two shell pieces back and have two glorious cushions. I’m sooo delighted and proud of them. Thank you to the EB team for all your help and support. I’d recommend the kits to anyone, experienced or beginner - beautiful designs, easy to follow pattern instructions and best quality wools. I’ve just started the tulip kit (have the lemon kit after that!) so I’m sorted for the winter! Wishing all fellow stitchers out there happiness and great results.
