The 4 Seasons of Embroidery project started as a friendship between Purl Soho and Portland, Oregon-based design company, Egg Press. Both share a devotion to traditional crafting and modern design, and Egg Press also brings a mastery of letter pressing and typeface design.
But it is our mutual respect for the handmade that most urgently brought this bi-coastal partnership into being. Together, we took great pleasure in bringing to the timeless craft of embroidery a look that is pared-down, playful and very fresh!
The 4 Seasons of Embroidery Kit centers around a compelling tree with a message of life and renewal, family history and natural bounty.
Each Kit includes four transfer designs that depict a year in the life of this proud tree, from bubbly spring and verdant summer to resplendent autumn and serene winter.
To magnify that message, we also created a simple woodgrain design. Use this transfer to give an organic and graphic expression to your more abstract thoughts.
Woodgrain proved to be a wonderful vehicle for our letter and number designs, too. With two transfer sets of alphabets (lower and upper cases) and a set of zero-to-nine numbers, you’ll be equipped to personalize your projects with initials, dates, and messages for the next generation.
4 Seasons Of Embroidery Kit
Each 4 Seasons of Embroidery Kit comes with absolutely everything you’ll need to stitch up your own embroidered treasures…
- Reusable transfers for 4 seasonal trees, woodgrain alphabets and numbers, and a woodgrain pattern
- 1 yard of cotton/linen fabric (enough to make 4 trees)
- 15 skeins of colorful embroidery thread
- Embroidery needles
- A 4-inch wooden embroidery hoop (large display hoop not included)
- A color photo how-to-embroider booklet
- Hook and loop tape for plying thread
And because we love beautiful packaging and hate senseless garbage, all of this is contained in a sturdy tube with a lovely letter-pressed top created by Egg Press. Once you’ve used what’s inside, use the tube for paint brushes or wooden spoons, buttons or knick knacks, dried flowers or chopsticks! Plus, such considered packaging makes this kit a very special gift!
