Can you tell I love Warwickshire? Since moving here in 2012 (3 weeks after getting married) I’ve always felt so lucky to spend my time in a county so rich in culture and history. And what would Warwickshire be without Shakespeare!
Go behind the scenes as I deliver the first batch of exclusive Shakespeare cross stitch kits to the main Shakespeare Birthplace Trust site on Henley Street in Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire (20 minutes from Caterpillar Cross Stitch HQ!) and learn more about this exciting collaboration!
I've been working in collaboration with Shakespeare Birthplace Trust over the last few months to create a brand NEW collection of cross stitch kits based on Shakespeare's works! The kits will soon be available in SBT gift shops but if you can't get to Stratford-upon-Avon, I have all three PDF patterns available via the website HERE!
A proportion of the proceeds from the sale of these patterns goes directly to the conservation of the Shakespeare properties. The Trust works to celebrate, manage and support the Shakespeare heritage sites and promote the enjoyment of his works all over the world.
There are three different Shakespeare quotes available as cross stitch patterns - To Thine Own Self Be True, The Wren With Little Quill and Be Not Afraid Of Greatness. They're 7 x 7 inches when stitched on 14 count aida so great for cross stitch beginners too!
If you would like to see more Shakespeare related cross stitch patterns please do leave me a comment below with your favourite quote!
