The kit for this Needlework Nibble is available in the Needlework Nibbles section of the Limited Edition & Museum Kits. This project uses silk wrapped purls in a filling couching technique that was used often on caskets. During the 17th century and into the early 18th century, figures such as flowers and bugs and tree canopies were filled with silk purls. This technique was fast to work and resulted in a splendid effect. It must have been a good balance of money for the materials and effect received for low embroidery skill as only couching was required.

Kit Contents:
