All the supplies you need to create the 17th Century Garden project by Lauren Yeager of the San Francisco School of Needlework & Design.

This project was originally created for a 3-part class in which you learn how to work a needlelace garden in 17th century techniques. Techniques include needlelace, blanket stitch, trellis stitch, satin stitch, twisted chain, stem stitch, corded Brussels, spider webs, plated braid, and chain stitch. Though this project comes with a pre-printed pattern and detailed instructions, it is not recommended for beginners.
