Eden Berry

Eden Berry - linen and silk

Eden Berry

Here's something for your Adam & Eve collection...all the key elements of the story are here, along with a portion of the verse from Genesis 8: ...and the Lord God planted a garden.

The silk berry also includes a few tiny straight stitches for detail and the grassy area surrounding the serpent is a patterned satin stitch which adds textural detail. The apples on the linen berry are woven spider web stitches; there is also some over-one stitching and a few other details to round out the design features.

NOTE: Silk and linen berry chartpaks have been sold separately for some time, and copies are likely still available from numerous retailers. However, due to the lack of silk gauze available for the foreseeable future, Eden Berry will be sold as a “partner” chartpak. This new format will include instructions and charts for both berries - but no silk gauze.
