American Needlework Kit

Mixed media product
This title is suitable for children aged 8 to 12 years old. The American Needlework Kit was inspired by a sampler at The Metropolitan Museum of Art made by an Amish girl who lived in Pennsylvania during the early 1800s. At that time, making samplers was a way for young girls to practice their skills as well as letters and numbers. This kit includes a colour chart, cloth, six skeins of embroidery floss and a plastic needle, plus a 16-page brochure of instructions, photographs and information about the design.
