Story behind the design

St Brigid is one of 3 traditional Irish saints along with St Patrick & St Columba.
Her feast day is February 1st coinciding with the pagan festival of Imbolc - the beginning of Spring.

St Brigid converted a pagan king to Christianity on his death bed by weaving rushes lining his floor and fashioning them into The Cross of Jesus.

Irish Tradition has it that hanging a woven St Brigid's Cross on your front door will protect the house from fire.

Suggestions for finishing your stitched piece

Once you have finished stitching you could:

- frame it as a picture
- make into a mini cushion
- stuff it with pot-pourri

However you decide, you can then gift your finished item to someone of Irish heritage - give them something to treasure.
