A Farmer walked through his field one cold winter morning. On the ground lay a Snake, stiff and frozen with the cold. The Farmer knew how deadly the Snake could be, and yet he picked it up and put it in his bosom to warm it back to life.
The Snake soon revived, and when it had enough strength, bit the man who had been so kind to it.
The bite was deadly and the Farmer felt that he must die. As he drew his last breath, he said to those standing around:
“Learn from my fate not to take pity on a scoundrel.”
The greatest kindness will not bind the ungrateful.
This kit is our most advanced fable just due to the detail on the coat of the farmer. It is still completely accessible for beginners, and there is a detailed video to accompany it, however it could be a bit intimidating if this is your first venture into sewing.
You will use three core embroidery stitches: straight stitch, chain stitch and split stitch.
All you need is a pair of scissors, everything else is included in the box:
- The design printed on cotton twill
- A detailed guide on the embroidery stitches
- An easy to follow colour coded stitching plan
- All the thread you need on colour coded bobbins
- Several needles
- A tote bag to enable you to easily transport your kit
The finished design will measure approx 7" x 10" (18 cm x 27 cm) and fit in an A4 frame. We expect it'll take 1 months to stitch (depending on how addicted you get to sewing of course!). We recommend stretching and mounting the finished piece prior to framing.
