The gift packaged needlepoint kits and canvases contain premium quality materials - including:
The packaged kits measure aprox. - 20 x 20 x 1/2 inches -- 50 x 50 x 1.5 cms. ( a bit under for shipping volumnes )
The four strips or frame designs - stitched and joined together may be finished into needlepoint bench covers and headboards. The headboards require eight strips ( kits ) to fit the large bed. We name these designs - the Heraldic Borders.
The Heraldic symbols each have a special symbolic meaning. The Lion - historically - represents Deathless Courage - The Tower an emblem of Grandeur and Society - the Plant is symbolic of Truth and - finally the Fret - the heraldic true lovers knot.
The colors historically also have a particular symbolism: Gold means Generosity - Beige signifies Peace and Sincerity - Blue is Loyalty and Truth - Green is Hope - Joy and Loyalty in Love.
Great for country houses and rustics - the Heraldic Borders may be joined to create needlepoint headboards. Striking for a piano bench cover as well - the versatility of these designs is endless. A nice touch to pull back your drapes ( for exmaple ).
If you plan to stitch the borders rugs - bench covers and / or headboards - we do encourage the acquisition of the four - or more kits at once - to insure that the dye lots of our tapestry yarn match and that the canvases are cut from the same bolt. The other option is to acquire the canvases only - and select the colors that suit your decorations.
These bench canvases ( not kitted ) - are found by selecting this link - NEEDLEPOINT RUG CANVASES.
