Lady Anne was a formidable prioneer of women’s rights in her time, and is responsible for the survival to this day of many of Cumbria’s greatest castles and churches. Incedentally, she was also a very keen stitcher and has been a great inspiration to Phillipa over the years. This design recreates a detail from a pillowe from between 1662 -1670, during her lifetime.
This generous and extravagant ‘Tree of Life’ design is a reflection of the new styles that prevailed in the third quarter of the 17th Century in England. The availability of beautiful wools, dyes and linen, the influence of foreign trade, and the desire and the wealth to buy exquisite embroideries all combined to create the perfect era for Crewel Work.
