The evergreen fir tree was traditionally used to celebrate winter festivals. They have long been used since the 1400’s in Eastern Europe, but they were not brought inside until around the 1600’s in Germany. They decorated them with edible things such as gingerbread and apples. Then glass makers started to make decorations similar to the decorations of today.Christmas trees were made popular during Queen Victoria’s reign. In Victorian times, the tree was decorated with candles to represent stars.

Red work is a form of embroidery which uses one colour of embroidery thread to trace simple line drawings. Though red is the traditional colour to use in Red work, other colours can be used or even stitched in multi colours. Red work is such a versatile form of embroidery and uses simple embroidery stitches such as Back Stitch, Daisy Stitch and French Knots. Red work is so versatile and looks lovely in a table runner.
