Clun Castle Steam Locomotive Blackwork Kit or Pattern
7029 Clun Castle Steam Locomotive was part of the Castle Class of steam engines that ran on the GWR. It was officially withdrawn from use in December 1965.
In 1966 Clun Castle was bought for its scrap value and over the years it has been renovated until it was withdrawn in 1988.
Clun Castle hauled its first main line railtour after its overhaul at the end of August 2021. The engine is now based at Tyseley.
This is part of a collection of Steam Locomotive designs I am designing with my Steam Engine loving Dad. The others in the set include Catch Me Who Can, The Puffing Billy, The Wylam Dilly and Locomotion No.1.
My Dad has proof stitched each of the engine patterns for me.
This design is stitched as 28 count on evenweave fabric. It is suitable for someone of an intermediate level or higher in any counted embroidery techniques. The pattern contains clear institutions over 21 pages.
Apart from a sewing frame/hoop and scissors, this kit is ready to use as soon as you receive it in the post.
