Last summer, we designed and created much of the exquisite embroidery for the upcoming Netflix series "The Crown" -about the early life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II.
We recreated the Queen's 13ft wedding train, along with iconic embroidery for her wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses, coronation robes and many pieces for the principal characters.
We eagerly anticipate seeing our work on the screen from November 4th!
Here is the trailer to wet your appetite!

This week I've been busy getting pieces ready for the show

So this week I've been busy getting pieces ready for the show, which will be taking place in 9 days time. I've made some good progress, but nothing is finished yet😬. Still waiting for parts to arrive as some of the work is being manufactured this time and being made out of different materials. I have nearly finished beading the centre of my table. Light came back from being sprayed and I'm over the moon. Progress so far.
