Danish Handcraft Guild

Vintage Danish Trees Cross Stitch Kit

This series of cross stitch designs was first published by the Danish Handcraft Guild for their 1974 calendar. Created by Danish artist Edith Hansen, the designs are timeless and iconic and have a mid-century modern feel. Pick your favorite, or stitch a collection to hang in your home.

Sought after by needleworkers across the globe, kits by the Danish Handcraft Guild, or Haandarbejdets Fremme, are truly something special. Established in 1928 to promote Danish textile art, the Guild has worked with noted Danish artists over the years to produce a range of iconic designs.

Imported from Denmark, this kit features heirloom-quality materials, including beautiful 100% linen and genuine Danish Flower Thread. Danish Flower Thread is a matte cotton thread that has been produced in Denmark since the early 1900's in a range of soft, muted colors. It is a non-divisible thread, meaning you do not separate it into strands like you do regular floss. Because of its tight twist, and the fact that it is a single strand, Danish Flower Thread makes very tidy, even cross stitches.

The finished design measures approximately 7-7/8" x 7-7/8".

Each kit makes one tree and includes the following materials:

  • 30-count linen
  • Danish Flower Cotton Embroidery Thread
  • Metallic thread
  • Tapestry needle
  • Black and white stitching chart
  • Basic stitching instructions

The design is stitched with one strand of floss over two threads.
