A well-behaved chook to grace any home any home, Old English Hen is a beautiful tapestry design in a classic combination of terracotta, red, oatmeal and greens. Lovely hen and chick with a flowing floral background and a border of leaves and berries. Old English Hen and her little chick are happy on their own but they also enjoy the company of their good friend, Old English Cockerel.
Each Old English Hen tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:
- Colour printed canvas (10hpi)
- Reference chart
- Generous supply of Anchor tapestry wool
- John James tapestry needle
- Stitch instructions for half cross and tent stitch
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 Old English Hen, we recommend either a CF249 or a CF2412 frame.
