William Frend De Morgan was an English potter, tile designer and novelist. A lifelong friend of William Morris, he designed tiles, stained glass and furniture for Morris & Co. from 1863 to 1872. His tiles often recall medieval or Islamic design patterns. The Blue Birds kit includes an 8″ x 8″ stitching area on 14, 16 or 18 mesh mono deluxe needlepoint canvas and all the pretty easy-to-use threads needed to complete. Please indicate your mesh preference in the note section at checkout just before submit order. We will send the 14 mesh if you do not provide a preference.
