Description

You’ll stitch using gentle blues and creamy white threads on 32-count linen. The finished sampler measures approximately 6 x 7-inches, but the linen in your kit is large enough to provide a practice area, so you can perfect each technique before stitching it into its home square in the design.

This class is designed for advanced/intermediate students who are cross-stitchers with some experience on linen. In addition to Belfast linen (in Antique White), the kit includes DMC flosses, size 80 Dentelles thread, size 12 pearl cotton, a needle and some interesting reading: a bibliography of sampler stitching.

Skill level: Advanced/Intermediate
Design Area: 6.6″ x 5.4″
