To celebrate the exhibition “Royal Embroidery” we developed a series of free hand embroidery kits. They are inspired by the historical curtains of Paleis Huis ten Bosch – the residential palace of Her Majesty Queen Máxima and King Willem Alexander. The original curtains were hand stitched in the 18th century in China. With this kit you will learn to stitch a cushion with birds from royal curtains.

With these kits you can bring a royal piece to your home!

The sets are suitable for beginners and include step by step illustrations.
