Renaissance & Baroque(Dutch) Collection

              (these were our first designs which, at the time, we at the FAHS thought that the fewer the number of                                       colors the better for our stitching customers. Thus, a few of these, although are lacking in realistic detail compared                              to the majority of our designs , still remain charming representations.)
