What's Inside a TALLIAFERRO Classic Needleart Crewel Pattern

you to easily apply your own creativity and imagination to a work so that you make it yours.
You may decide not to deviate from the way we did the original,
but should you itch to change a little here, or change a lot there,
we have designed our patterns so that you need to do so confidently.

THE POMEGRANATE TREE SAMPLER
One of two samplers designed by the artist to brush up on the crewel stitch vocabulary and regain manual dexterity after years of absence from the art and later used as a class exercise to introduce students to crewel and familiarize them with two enduring motifs:  the Tree of Life and the pomegranate, symbolic of health, good fortune, and fertility.

THE ROYAL PERSIAN BLOSSOM SUITE
Drawing upon the lush floral motival vocabulary of Persian embroidery and textiles, the Royal Persian Blossom Suite offers four separate patterns, all satisfyingly detailed and dramatic. Whether one is seeking a large, complex project, or an exquisite small one, there is a pattern here for everyone, from the most experienced to the beginner.
PARADISO I
The first of a planned series of three Persian style blossoms and pomegrantes, for those who cannot have enough pomegranates about.  The design is full of movement, lending a lightness and modernity to a venerable embroidery motif. The design is a study in heightened relief, utilizing padding stitches to achieve a lovely dimensionality.

LA SERENISSIMA
A tribute to the opulent colors and voluptuous clouds of the Venetian sunset captured by the classical painters of the city.  The great blossom, padded along the edges for dramatic relief, utilizes soft-shading to capture the painterly movement of color along the petals, while the anchoring great leaf is worked in battlement couching in the teals of the gathering evening shadows.

KASHAN
Kashan is a sweet little work, adapted from a 10th century Moorish tile
 is ideal for beginners wishing to perfect their buttonhole and crewel outline stitches, or for more experienced needleworkers who are looking for a small project that can be done in a relatively short amount of time.
Though small, Kashan has a lovely relief, due to the buttonhole stitch blossoms, that lends it a significant drama not often found in small pieces.
