5_cb-130117 Carol, all the way on the otherside of the world in Perth, Australia, contacted us before Christmas as she was looking to get some trapunto wool and learn the craft. For her first attempt. she has made this lovely version of Sylvia Critcher’s Christmas Rose Pin Cushion and she has used hers as a Christmas decoration rather that a pin cushion. We’re sure you’ll agree this is a fabulous way to start.

If you’d like to learn more about Sylvia’s signature corded technique, you can watch it here as she talks us through all the stages of making a different pattern – the Dog Rose cushion and she points out that these steps apply to all her patterns and projects.

You can also buy the kit here in the shop or if you want to work on your own projects, you can buy the trapunto wool in our shop as well. The wool is made exclusively for Sylvia
