Vetty Creations office partial closure: I have been unwell since mid November 2023. Orders are going out, though may be delayed when I'm having a really bad day/days. I respond to enquiries when I am able to. I apologise for this. It’s not what I want either.

Portuguese whitework tin kit

Designed by Yvette Stanton

Portuguese whitework is from the town of Guimarães in Portugal. Traditionally this embroidery was worked on white linen fabric with white cotton thread.

This kit contains all you need to make one embroidered tin top, including the tin. The tins measure approximately 7.2cm diameter by 5cm high (with embroidered top).

The kit features detailed step-by-step instructions, with accompanying diagrams. They are written specifically for beginners to the technique. Some counted embroidery experience is recommended.

In this range, we also have a Mountmellick embroidery tin kit, Hardanger embroidery tin kit, smøyg (Norwegian pattern darning) tin kit, and a Sardinian knotted embroidery tin kit. Collect the set!
