Our Alphabet Ark needlepoint is a fabulous addition to any nursery or child’s bedroom. The design is bursting with interesting animals for children to discover! As well as the giraffes on the Ark there are elephants, zebras, sheep, cats, rabbits and a pig, peacock, lion, camel and crocodile and even a cheeky Jack Russell. The animals alone will enchant and delight any child, and there’s an alphabet and numbers border for added letters and numbers interest too.
Alphabet Ark appeals to boys and girls equally. If you are waiting for a new arrival, stitch away before the baby’s birth and fill in the name panel afterwards.

Choosing a Tapestry Frame
A tapestry frame is not essential, but does help to prevent your work going out of shape and makes it easy to resume stitching the next day or after a break. We stock a good range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which only take a few minutes to assemble. As the canvas is attached by easy clips, the frames allow you to switch between projects if necessary.
For Alphabet Ark, we recommend either a CF249 or a CF2412 frame.
