The Mellerstain Parrots is taken from an original Arts & Crafts Firescreen within the embroidery collection at Mellerstain House in the Scottish Borders, reproduced by special permission from The Countess of Haddington. The house is open to the public so do visit this treasure, which sits in front of the fire in the Machineel Room.

The full version of the firescreen is available as an advanced (Level 3) kit. Although the design is complete without any additions, there is enough space so that, if you wish, you can embroider a date or signature between the acorn cups at the base of the design to celebrate a special occasion.

  • Linen size: 17 x 17”
  • Design size: 10 1/2 x 10”

Padded Satin, Satin Stitch, Closed Fly Stitch, Crewel Stem Stitch, French Knots, Long & Short as ‘soft shading’.

Please note the cushion in the photograph is an illustration of how you might display your finished work. The kit is for the embroidered panel only.
