New Petite Project: Pretty Petite Fall, a Counted and Surface Embroidery on Canvas Project

The Education Department is pleased to announce the newest segment in the Petite Project series, Pretty Petite Fall by Vicky Witterschein, from our Skylands Stitchers Chapter in New Jersey. This small (2” x 3) canvas and surface stitchery is perfect for a stand up, small framed piece or fall ornament. The 18-count white canvas is colored with alcohol based markers. Thread color for the sky matching the color of the marked canvas, stranded silk, pearl cotton, silk ribbon, Silk Lame Petite and Silk Lame 13, silk straw , Brazilian rayon, green felt, and beads give the stitcher a chance to use small amounts of various thread. If this is a project for a chapter or small group, many of the threads can be shared.

All Petite Projects are available to download from the members-only Petite Projects page. Petite Projects is a collection of over 70 beautiful projects in a wide-range of techniques made available as a benefit to EGA members. If you are an EGA Member, once you log in you will see Petite Projects in the navigation under Members Only or by clicking here (You need to be logged in for the link to work).
