Beckett of Scotland, with some help from close friends. He ran the company until his death in 1950. His son took over the company, but it closed in 1960 due to a fall in demand.
The Company produced a small catalogue/booklet each Spring and Autumn; this included a colour photo of the finished piece, also details like the name of flowers used, threads recommended, stitches, and what linen to embroider on. This wonderful company'Fairistytch', were famous for using accurate flower designs from gardens around the UK, and nature; these were then created into stunning tablecloths, centrepieces, sets, panels, cushions etc. They also had a subsidiary company of shops around the UK, called'Needlework Shop', which stocked the full range of their designs from their booklets. These finished pieces, and also the booklets are very collectable, and hard to find. FRESHLY WASHED AND PRESSED, READY TO USE.

I will always try to get back to you asap but I do work and have a family, so please be patient Also the different time zones don't help. "I find these gorgeous'Vintage Linen Treasures', and bring them'Back to Life' just for you".Embroidery work is such a lost art it is not as common as it was in our Grandmothers days, and to the standard they were taught as part of'getting ready to run their own homes'. I think about the person who has spent so many hours making such beautiful creations it truly is a lost art. These gorgeous'Linen Treasures' are getting very hard to find! So I gather them to offer to you : They are washed and lightly pressed, ready to use in your home, gift or your own collection. Txzj pxzj28681 txzj-11 txzj5 txzj85 txzj115.
