Description

Catch-Me-Who-Can Steam Locomotive Blackwork Embroidery Kit

Designed by Richard Trevithick an inventor and mining engineer in 1808, Catch-Me-Who-Can Steam Locomotive was the first locomotive in the world to haul fare-paying passengers on a circular demonstration track.

It was constructed at the Hazledine Foundry in Bridgnorth by John Rastrick to Trevithick’s design.   It was built to appear at a “Steam circus” in Bloomsbury, London in the summer of 1808.

Trevithick 200 was formed in 2007 to build a replica of the locomotive.

This embroidery of Catch-Me-Who-Can is part of a collection of Steam Locomotive designs I am designing with my Steam Engine loving Dad.  The others in the set include The Puffing Billy and The Wylam Dilly and Clun Castle Steam Locomotive.

My Dad has proof stitched each of the engine patterns for me.

This design is ideal for anyone, from a beginner to an expert in any counted embroidery technique.

Apart from a sewing frame/hoop and scissors, this kit is ready to use as soon as you receive it in the post.
