Hook Line + TInker
Trumpeter Swan Embroidery Kit
Each spring in the Yukon, we'd pack a lunch and a thermos of tea and make the drive to Marsh Lake to view the migrating trumpeter swans. This big, beautiful bird is first time beginner friendly, and flexible. Add lots of colour, or simplify.
Level 1: First Time Beginner Friendly
Included in the kit:
- pre-printed pattern on unbleached cotton fabric
- 15cm (6”) embroidery hoop
- embroidery floss
- embroidery needle
All of Hook, Line & Tinker’s embroidery illustrations are original made by Laurie. Each illustration is repeatedly rendered through the craft of hand embroidery using a variety of basic stitches to build texture and a pleasing design. The pattern evolves with each hand rendering with attention to texture and technique. Through this process, instructions for completing each design are developed. The 100% cotton fabric is cut and prepared by hand, and all finalized patterns are printed onto the fabric in the studio using inks that maintain their integrity during the stitching process. Each kit is packed by hand. Packaging is designed to be lightweight and compact to reduce environmental impacts via shipping, and paper, including recycled paper, have been used rather than single use plastics.
