Henry Grace a Dieu

Fans of reproduction embroidery (particularly the 17th Century) will be charmed by the Henry Grace a Dieu project that Embroidery for Ducks has started.   This is a kit from Bothy Threads, which specializes in reproduction embroidery (second link).

Bothy offers needlepoint kits ("tapestry") as well as counted thread and cross stitch.  You may enjoy watching the tapestry video on the home page, just to see some of their silk screened pieces and their tips on doing needlepoint.  It is a really good introduction to traditional needlepoint for those coming to our art from cross stitch.
