Hens Sweet Hens is a gorgeous tapestry to stitch for yourself or to make as a gift for a hen keeping friend. The design features a yard of busy hens and a cockerel, enjoying the sunshine as they emerge from their hen house. The eggs and feathers border makes Hens Sweet Hens the perfect focal point for a country kitchen.

Choosing a Tapestry Frame
A tapestry frame is not essential but does help to prevent your work from 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 Hens Sweet Hens, we recommend either a CF189 frame or choose a CF219 or CF249 frame if you might stitch something larger in the future. A 12″ frame will be a bit of a squeeze.
Printed canvas area: 7″ x 7″ (18cm x 18cm)
