Nantucket Crewel Whale : Master Class with Edith Bouriez

The Nantucket “Crewel Whale” is an NHA exclusive design done on linen twill with DMC cotton and silver thread. This design gives you the choice of stitching the model of interpreting the “Whale” in your own stitches. This is a challenge even for those experienced stitchers, but worth the effort!
