Our Pacific Southwestern Region is offering a very special design by Carol Algie Higginbotham. By ordering this beautiful sampler, you get to support our Pacific Southwestern Region. Here’s more information about the design and how to order it.
This sampler design will let the stitcher explore several different techniques. The piece is mostly canvas stitches with four pulled thread areas and eight Blackwork areas. We have 4 canvas stitches using two different threads and 10 canvas stitches done in floss only. The piece uses three types of metallic threads. To finish, the stitcher will have their choice of two centers. One center is done in Jean Hilton stitches and the other center is done in surface embroidery stitches. The entire piece is finished with beads.
The 6 ¾” x 6 ¾” piece is worked on a 12” x 12” piece of white Congress Cloth. It is worked in floss, so you may choose your own color, and enhance it with the gold and white metallic threads.
The pattern is in full color with detailed charts of the design and stitched on 12” x 12” Congress Cloth. This design may be purchased as a PDF file sent to you via email upon receipt of your check for $20.00 and the order form below.
