Golden Wattle patterns for sale
In May 2015 the Embroiderers’ Guild ACT was commissioned to embroider a specially developed Golden Wattle design on a blanket that was the official gift from the people of Australia, for HRH Princess Charlotte. After completing this commission, the ‘Blanket Embroidery Team’ went on to develop small projects using part of the original design on items that are of interest to stitchers and embroiderers. The projects are a card, a paperweight, a scissor keeper, a trio of pin cushions, a book mark, a needle book. Patterns for these projects are now available from the Embroiderers’ Guild ACT at a cost of $5.00 per pattern (by email) or $6.00 per pattern (printed and posted).
