The Muncaster Bed Hanging
20th December 2019
Phillipa Turnbull is one of the world’s most talented designers of Jacobean Crewel embroidery. Her company is known for its exquisite re-creations of historic crewel embroideries, which they turn into kits for everyone to enjoy.
This year, Phillipa and her team have been working busily to create a project of a lifetime – the Muncaster Bed Hanging from Muncaster Castle in The Lake District.

Not for the faint of heart, the completed design measures 1.5 metres in height and a metre wide.
It is a project that… “requires its own storage solution” and will take “months or even years to finish.”
