More about this digital file


Inspired by the Jacobean designs utilised in English crewel work, Deerfield embroidery originated in the USA in the 19th century.

Originally worked with linen thread in a palette of indigo, it employs much lighter, more open designs than its English cousin.

This delightful pincushion features a dainty design incorporating a small bird and several stylised flowers.

Stitched onto white linen with cotton threads, it is finished with a pretty beaded edge decorated with blue tassels.
