Greensleeves | Magnificently Popular

31st May 2024

Brenda Sortwell’s projects are characterised by bold, confident designs worked in crewel embroidery using a striking and engaging colour palette.

It’s no surprise then, that her project Greensleeves from A Passion for Needlework | The Whitehouse Daylesford was one of the most popular – it’s a real crowd pleaser.

Beautiful to behold, this project is also a stitching wonderland featuring an entire world of intricacy and complexity courtesy of a cacophony of flowers and entwined foliage that has been superbly imagined and skilfully stitched.

If you’re looking for a magnificent crewel embroidery piece that you will thoroughly enjoying stitching, Greensleeves should absolutely be on your list.

You could also do yourself a favour and purchase one of the Ready-to-Stitch kits we have, while they are still in stock, that includes over 50 different Appletons crewel wool threads, all the fabrics you need, with the design pre-printed for your convenience, as well as the trim for the finished cushion.
