Alphabet Garden is a gorgeous tapestry design to stitch for a new arrival in your family, or for a teddy bear collector of any age! The design features a gardening bear watering his colourful alphabet garden. He's careful with water and never uses a hosepipe. Bears like honey, and teddy has his own beehive in the garden. He's planted sunflowers and tulips and has apple trees too.

Teddy is joined in the garden by his animal friends. There is a hen and a cockerel, ducks swimming in the pond, a blackbird, a rabbit (taste testing the carrots), a black cat in the tree and a little Jack Russell.

Alphabet Garden has a timeless quality which is sure to make it a huge hit among stitchers and the children they make it for. We do hope you'll enjoy it.

Choosing  a Tapestry Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential but using one will help to prevent your work from going out of shape. Using a frame also makes it easy to resume stitching the next day or after a break.

We stock a range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which take only a few minutes to assemble. The canvas is attached by sturdy clips, allowing you to remove your canvas and switch between projects if necessary.

For Alphabet Garden, we recommend a 24" frame, either a CF249 or a CF2412. See all our tapestry clip frames in our Frames and Accessories category.
