The Goldwork Tulip is an advanced design.

The tulip can be worked in gold, silver or copper metal threads on a cotton velveteen fabric. Areas of the design are padded with felt and crochet cotton and the metal embroidery threads sewn over top.

The fabric comes with the design hand painted on so you do not have to worry about transferring the design yourself and all the threads in the kit are clearly labelled.

In the kit I provide a detailed instruction booklet with 20 pages of step-by-step diagrams and instructions on each technique on the goldwork design.


Techniques and Threads Worked on the Tulip Design:

  • Padding: Areas of the design are padded with felt and crochet cotton.
  • Tulip Head: The petals of the tulip head are worked in Japan thread in the technique of Or Nue in which the Japan threads are couched down with coloured threads creating a shaded effect. The Japan thread is synthetic so will not tarnish.
  • Leaves: The leaves are worked in alternating couching down rows of twist, rococco and pearl purl.
  • Stem: The stem is worked by couching down soft gold beads over crochet cotton padding.
  • Outlines: The tulip petals and leaves are outlined with pearl purl.
  • Grass: The grass is worked in s-ing which is stem stitch using soft gold beads.
  • Ground: The ground is worked in spangles.

Each of my goldwork designs have different metal thread techniques so doing one design doesn’t necessarily prepare you for another design. Each design is unique making for a new stitching experience each time.

I am offering free on-going critique with this kit…..you can email me at any time if you have questions or would like me to critique your embroidery.

Gold 2% WM means that there is 2% gold in the plating on white metal (silver plated copper). The gilt threads have 1/2% of gold in the plating. Both types of thread tarnish as the metals are copper based and oxidize over time when exposed to light and the elements. Display the embroidery in a dark location with no direct natural or artificial light to slow down the rate of tarnishing.

Please visit the Metal Thread Information page for FAQS on goldwork/metal threads.

The Long and Short Stitch Embroidery book has a nice collection of flowers to embroider in the needle painting technique. The book does not have diagrams on how to stitch each petal and leaf of the flowers like you will get when you purchase one of my needle painting kits but it is a good book if you have worked a few of my designs and are now familiar with the technique and would like some more flower designs to stitch.
