The Great Charter - i109 Kit

by Mike Parr

Inspired by the Magna Carta, a kingly monogram in whitework embellishes a needlebook and scissor fob.


Few historical documents have had the same lasting impact as the Magna Carta. Drafted in 1215, the amended document finally became part of English law in 1297 and the elaborate E monogrammed onto this needlebook and scissor fob acknowledge the role played by King Edward 1.

Worked onto pure white linen with stranded and perlé cottons, the ornate script reflects the writing style of the time and is stitched using the beautiful trailing technique.


All our kits include premium quality materials with everything sourced, inspected and cut to measure to enable your project to be as beautiful as the original featured in the magazine or book.
