Appletons Wool and design partners The Bargello Sisters teamed up to create three colorful bargello needlepoint kits.
These new charted canvas kits are designed by The Bargello Sisters and sold by Appletons Wool in England. The kits do have instructions to make the designs and you can use your phone to scan a QR code which will take you to video instructions as well.
New gals on the needlepoint block are Laura Angell and Lynsey Angell aka The Bargello Sisters. Together they produced a book of bargello patterns last year.
- Bargello Needlepoint in the US
- Bargello Stitch in the UK and elsewhere
They are helping to popularize an older needlework style by not only adding their own modern twist – see their bargello totems on Instagram – but also through the mantra to just pick up a needle and start stitching the fun and relaxing world of bargello stitches. While their book is still new, the sisters have been working in this textile field for several years. Laura works in government and private collections and has an exhibition that is on it’s way around the world! You can watch an interview of them on YouTube with the Point It Out Podcast.
