ELIZABETHAN
FLORAL SCROLLS
A design influenced by an Elizabethan embroidery and translated into a Victorian needlepoint/Berlin Woolwork carpet. This type of design was revived in the 1990's when there was a fashion for hand stitching carpets from needlework kits. The choice of either black or neutral backgrounds is traditional.

MACHINE STITCHED

The machine stitched carpets are produced on a computerised sewing machine.
The machine has a maximum stitching size of 6 x 7.75 ins and 28 stitches per ins. This means that some of the larger carpets cannot be machine stitched.
Because they are stitched in machine embroidery cotton the colours may not match the hand stitched carpets exactly.
Even on a sewing machine the larger carpets take up to 14 hours to stitch and involve constant monitoring and the cutting of thread floats between stitching each colour.
