For women in early America, learning to sew was a crucial skill that was often taught early in childhood and further developed throughout a lifetime. Fancy needlework or fancywork is a term used to describe ornamental embellishments and decorative "art needlework" projects. With our high quality canvases featuring printed image adaptations from the Winterthur Museum Collection, you can experience firsthand the intricacies of this unique craft from start to finish.

The first of four fragments from a vibrant 18th century crewelwork landscape, this image is adapted from a textile in Winterthur Museum's Decorative Folk Art Collection, which is thought to have been a petticoat hem. The Fanciful Flowers and Birds #1 Silk Needlework Kit contains a Giclee printed image of this vivid textile fragment on 14 mesh mono deluxe canvas along with hand selected colors of silk thread to complete your project. Canvas made in Germany, printed in USA.
