An elegant tapestry cat, Renaissance Cat was inspired by the fabulous woven tapestries in the Musée de Cluny in Paris, and the patterns on his body and in the border are an homage to those wonderful mediaeval tapestries. Stitch him on his own, or as a partner to face his friend Patchwork Cat. As with Patchwork Cat, Renaissance Cat is a lovely balance of plain and patterned areas.
Each kit contains
Each Renaissance Cat 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

- 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 Renaissance Cat, we recommend either a CF249 or a CF2412 frame.
Printed canvas area: 16″ x 16″ (41cm x 41cm)
