Victorianna is flavored with patterns and techniques from Victorian embroidery and canvas work, along with other canvas patterns and stitches. The Lace border is the first technique and
will be followed with Bargello, Berlin Work, and pattern couching to name just a few. The Sampler is 230 threads square (9 ½” x 9 ½” on Congress) and may stitched on Congress Cloth, 18 count mono canvas, or evenweave linen. The model is stitched on 24 count Congress Cloth. The instructions include options for different counts and base fabrics. Thread options include 6 strand cotton floss, silk floss, perle coton, and Kreinik braid. Colors may be changed as desired by the stitcher. Any threads will work that will fit the gauge of the ground material. This is an eclectic piece and will be colorful. Make it your own.
