Beth Russell Hare Cushion / Picture Needlepoint

Hare Cushion / Picture

The original William Morris tapestry was designed for his patron Alexander Ionides. Completed in 1887, it measured 15ft (4.5m) wide.

Morris delegated the drawing of the animals to the architect Philip Webb and the foreground millefleurs to his eventual successor Henry Dearle. The result is a tribute to their lifelong friendship and various talents. It is interesting to compare the Greenery tapestry designed later entirely by Henry Dearle.
The original Forest is owned by the Victoria & Albert Museum.

The tapestry has been adapted so that each part of the design is complete in itself, however the Hare, Fox and Raven look marvellous sewn together to make a modern day version of the famous wall hanging.

The kit's de luxe canvas from Zweigart is the best available. Strong and polished, it is most pleasurable to stitch, will not fluff the wool and will also withstand the rigours of stretching and long wear. The printing is the best in the world, done from the stitched piece and the clarity and colours are quite outstanding.

Beth Russell writes the detailed instructions herself with the intention of making the stitching of each kit as simple and enjoyable as possible.
