Pomegranate Collection patterns are designs which I have not stitched a sample yet for the cover image, but I just couldn't wait to share this design! So, these are less expensive and only available as downloads. If you stitch a Pomegranate Collection pattern and submit it for photography, you'll receive a $50 Avlea website credit (and you get your embroidery back, too!). Contact me at if you are interested in submitting your embroidery.


The island of Naxos is famous among Greek folk embroidery for distinctive lozenge patterns composed of leaves and stars, typically worked in shades of red. These intricate designs usually feature a half-drop motif arrangement in which the second row of motifs is worked halfway down and halfway between the previous row of motifs, creating further complexity and intricacy. Shown worked as a cushion cover, this design is a stunning example of historic embroidery!
