Act I

This beginners embroidery kit depicts the first act of The Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll. 
’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,

And the mome raths outgrabe.

The Fisherman

A poor Fisherman, who lived on the fish he caught, had bad luck one day and caught nothing but a very small fry. The Fisherman was about to put it in his basket when the little Fish said:

“Please spare me, Mr. Fisherman! I am so small it is not worth while to carry me home. When I am bigger, I shall make you a much better meal.”

But the Fisherman quickly put the fish into his basket.

“How foolish I should be,” he said, “to throw you back. However small you may be, you are better than nothing at all.”

A little thing in hand is worth more than a great thing in prospect.

This kit is from The Fables range.

The Elephant and The Rat

A Rat was traveling along the king’s highway. He was a very proud Rat, considering his small size and the bad reputation all Rats have. As Mr. Rat walked along he noticed a great commotion up the road, and soon a grand procession came in view. It was the King and his retinue.

The King rode on a huge Elephant adorned with the most gorgeous trappings. A great crowd of people followed the procession. They were so taken up with admiration of the Elephant, that the Rat was not noticed. His pride was hurt.

“What fools!” he cried. “Look at me, and you will soon forget that clumsy Elephant! Is it his great size that makes your eyes pop out? Why, I have eyes and ears and as many legs as he! I am of just as much importance, and- ”

But just then the royal Cat spied him, and the next instant, the Rat knew he was not quite so important as an Elephant.

A resemblance to the great in some things does not make us great.

The Weave in Yellow - Square
 

The Weave in Yellow - Square

This range of kits is based on the centuries old tradition of Bargello stitching. Bargello designs use a combination of long stitches and repeat patterns to create geometric designs, with the designs ranging from simple repeats of constant stitch lengths (like our Flame design) to more advanced designs combining multiple stitch lengths (like our Weave design).

Much like the traditional designs, this kit uses wool on canvas creating an incredibly durable and hard wearing finished piece. As you are stitching on unprinted canvas, you will count the number of holes for each stitch length. Whilst you need patience at the beginning, you will soon get the hang of how the pattern repeats.

Act III

This beginners embroidery kit depicts the third act of The Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll. 
He took his vorpal sword in hand;
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree
And stood awhile in thought.

The Lion, The Boar and The Vulture
 

The Lion, The Boar and The Vulture

On a summer day, when the great heat induced a general thirst among the beasts, a Lion and a Boar came at the same moment to a small well to drink.

They fiercely disputed which of them should drink first, and were soon engaged in the agonies of a mortal combat.

When they stopped suddenly to catch their breath for a fiercer renewal of the fight, they saw a Vulture waiting in the distance to feast on the one that should fall first.

They at once made up their quarrel, saying, “It is better for us to make friends, than to become the food of Crows or Vultures.”

Better to be friends than fight.

The Lion In Love

A Lion fell in love with a beautiful maiden and proposed marriage. The maiden’s parents did not know what to say. They did not want to give their daughter to the Lion, yet they did not wish to enrage the King of Beasts.

At last the father said:

“We feel highly honored by your Majesty’s proposal, but our daughter is a tender young girl, and we fear that in the heat of love you might possibly do her injury. Might I venture to suggest that your Majesty should have your claws removed, and your teeth extracted; then we would consider your proposal again.”

The Lion was so much in love that he had his claws trimmed and his big teeth taken out.

But, when he again came to the parents of the young girl they simply laughed at him.

Love tames the wildest.

Act I-III

This beginners embroidery kit depicts acts 1-3 of The Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll.
’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
      The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
      The frumious Bandersnatch!”

He took his vorpal sword in hand;
      Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree
      And stood awhile in thought.
