Christmas is all about tradition...

advent calendar open

Advent calendars have traditionally come in all manner of forms from glittery printed cardboard with push-out windows to more elaborate embroidered versions with pockets that conceal chocolates and small gifts.

aks advent calendar reflects our passion for textiles and has become a traditional part of our Christmas story. Over the years weve created different sets of motifs to mark the season but the concept of taking a handmade decoration out of a numbered pocket and dressing a felt tree in a countdown to Christmas day remains. This year were gone further and for the first time created a complete kit to enable you to make your own personalised version of aks advent calendar which this year features a collection of our charming embroidered birds.

Patterns and kits to make larger decorative felt birds will be available as well as sacks and Christmas cards with similar birds.

This project can be made by hand or with a sewing machine. It can be adapted to incorporate individual needlework passions and different skill levels. The kit comes packaged in a printed tote bag to store the calendar and is available in 2 colour combinations red, white and green, as shown or in a typically ak colours of purple, magenta, orange and red.

Kits will be on sale the last week of September please email us to request further information.
