"Michaelmas – the feast of St Michael and All Angels – was traditionally celebrated in September as the start of the farming year. A feast of a goose was deemed to spell prosperity for the coming months.
Our take on the Michaelmas Goose combines that history with a beautiful, intricate and brightly coloured goose on a linen fabric. Suitable for experienced needleworkers, it consists of a variety of embroidery stitches to create a textured and vibrant image measuring 32 x 32cm"
