Bethany Hughes, the designer behind Blue Coppice, has stitched, drawn and made ‘things’ since she was a very small child. No egg box, piece of string or pot of glue was safe...and still isn’t. Her quirky, whimsical counted cross-stitch and embroidery designs are inspired by the beautiful English countryside, stately homes and historic textiles, and a lifetime spent in art galleries and museums.
Each Blue Coppice design pack includes charts, a list of recommended materials, comprehensive step-by-step stitching and assembly instructions, stitch diagrams and full colour pictures of the finished items.
