Craftsman Pillow Kits

Craftsman pillow kits allow you to re-create modern interpretations of historic patterns.

Popular since the second half of the 1800s, the pillow kit is widely available in revivals of historic patterns, especially those of the Arts & Crafts period—in which style simple stitches are fairly easy to learn and execute. Kits are available for embroidered work, stenciled patterns, and needlepoint designs.

Most kits come with all the materials you need to stitch and finish a complete pillow: front and back fabric, appropriate thread, instructions, even the needle. How you display your finished work of art is up to you.
