Jacobean: Jacobean Bird

"Stitching Jacobean Bird was a pure pleasure.  The instructions were so well written and the diagrams so clear, I was able to complete the piece without benefit of a classroom setting.  The kit had a generous amount of thread, which gave me confidence that I could correct my errors without fear of running out.  I am a newbie at crewel work and am so happy I chose this kit for the beginning of another great stitching adventure!  Thank you, Tanja for designing and producing such wonderful needlework kits for us!."

Jacobean Bird

Jacobean: Jacobean Tree

"This was my first attempt at Crewel Work, and my first time using crewel wool or linen twill. After many years of counted thread embroidery, I became bored and decided to rekindle my interest by trying some surface embroidery. This is my second Tanja Berlin kit. With my first, the blackwork peacock, I didn't learn as much as I should have because I tried too hard to duplicate the results vs. learn the technique. This time I allowed myself to play with the design by adding some beads, DMC Daimant and Waterlilies threads, and switching the colors around here and there. I had a wonderful time with it and consequently learned much more. This was a good challenge for me and a good way to try working with new materials. And I didn't have to worry about creating the perfect design or fret about transferring it to fabric; I could go right to work."

"The kit from Berlin Embroidery is complete...excellent directions...quality materials, and more than enough to complete the project...the critique along the way was most helpful. It was a joy to work on, the design is so appealing, when finished and framed I thought, "Gosh, did I do that!"

Modern Jacobean: Bird of Paradise

"Finishing the Bird of Paradise has brought me so much satisfaction.  This is a great design, as are all of Tanja's.  The instructions and Tanja's teaching are wonderful.  Even though I have done several pieces in various disciplines of embroidery, this piece brought together so many ideas.  I conquered my fear of working with gold kid - it really wasn't that hard.  When I pricked my finger in class and got blood on my piece, Tanja very calmly said, "You can just design some extra flowers to cover it."  I thought she was nuts; but after some consideration, you can see the extra flowers I added at the left.  It worked beautifully."

Bird of Paradise Kit

Modern Jacobean: Bird of Paradise

"Although I am not a beginner, this beautifil little piece of embroidery taught me several nice stitches I could easily practise thanks to the clearness of the instructions; the work is really enjoyable and you  never feel bored thanks to the variety of materials, colours and stitches . The result is reached quite fast  and cannot be compared with any other embroidery work you can find on the market . Try it and have fun !"

Christine Guillemain in France

Bird of Paradise Kit

Modern Jacobean: Bird of Paradise

"I am new to this type of needlework and found the design of the Bird of Paradise both challenging and inspiring.  I enjoyed learning the 20 different stitches which make up the design and have been inspired to use some of these stitches on my other needlework projects. Tanja is very patient when teaching each new stitch and often gave individual instruction for the more complicated stitches.  The Bird of Paradise is framed and hangs proudly in our home.  I am looking forward to doing more Tanja Berlin creations."

Modern Jacobean: Floral Motif

"This lovely flower will provide you a few hours of pleasure thanks to the softness of the fabric and threads (pure silk of the best quality!),  and useful training thanks to the large variety of stitches involved. For the first time, I found that it didn't take enough time."

Modern Jacobean: Floral Swirl

"I love this floral  and will be working more of Tanja's designs in the near future. I plan on challenging myself and with Tanja's help it will be fun.  I have embroidered in the past but learned a couple new stitches. It was fun and rewarding. I asked Tanja once for help and she replied. And on a Sunday! !! Great design and great designer"
