The Wind and the Sun were disputing which was the stronger.

Suddenly they saw a traveller coming down the road, and the Sun said: "I see a way to decide our dispute. Whichever of us can cause that traveller to take off his cloak shall be regarded as the stronger. You begin."

So the Sun retired behind a cloud, and the Wind began to blow as hard as it could upon the traveller.

But the harder he blew the more closely did the traveller wrap his cloak round him, till at last the Wind had to give up in despair.

Then the Sun came out and shone in all his glory upon the traveller, who soon found it too hot to walk with his cloak on.

This kit is suitable for beginners.

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.

We have created a video guiding you through all the key stitching areas to accompany The Sun and The North Wind kit. You will also find guides on each type of stitch used in the how to guides
