In an effort to keep this series of tutorials on the Goldwork & Silk Tudor-style Rose a little bit organized, I’m created an index page for all the related posts on this project. That way, if you want to come back to this project a little later on, you’ll be able to find all the links in one convenient place, which I’ll include under the Tips & Techniques page here on Needle ‘n Thread.
Below, you’ll find links to each article in this step-by-step series on embroidering a Tudor-style rose in silk and goldwork:
