Stag Beetle Textile Art Box

£40.00

This is the first textile art kit from artist and embroidery designer Kate Tume, and contains everything you need to create this Stag Beetle design, Mother Eagle style.

***Check out my Instagram for an unboxing video of this kit!***

This design invites you to experiment with embellishment (in textile arts, this is a broad category encompassing the decoration of cloth by sewing on beads, sequins, and more), with the added challenge of some basic goldwork (using coloured metal threads). With a little patience and care, I believe everyone can create this design, no matter their embroidery experience.

What you'll get:
• 6" Embroidery hoop
• 9" square piece of cotton fabric
• Eco felt
• 2 needles
• Gutermann black cotton thread
• All the professional-quality beads, sequins and special threads you'll need
• 30-page fully-illustrated instruction booklet, full of my Pro-Tips for getting that extra polish
• Full colour Stag Beetle trading card with info on this amazing and endangered species

But wait there's more!

You'll also get my illustrated guide to mounting your work like a pro - FREE! And FREE worldwide shipping!

The only thing you don't get are embroidery scissors, and I also *highly* recommend a seat frame or barrel clamp to hold your provided frame, or to use instead. If you don't have one, or can't source one, working at a table where you can set your hoop down will work okay.

Every kit includes a £2 donation to the People's Trust for Endangered Species, a UK charity that work to protect the endangered Stag Beetle - and many other threatened species! www.ptes.org

My Art Boxes are also 100% plastic packaging free, and entirely vegan friendly.
