$12.00 – $18.00
This narrow sampler (approximately 3″ wide by 12″ long) offers a great opportunity for anyone just beginning to try new stitches and techniques, or for more experienced stitchers looking for a quick, fun project. You can work on #18 mono canvas or 18-count linen fabric, using overdyed floss and DMC Perle cotton, with accents of gold Heirloom beads and creme pearls. Techniques used include pulled thread and ribbon couching; the rose and grape motifs are especially interesting to work with the overdyed thread. Suggestions for color substitutions (any overdyed floss or silk can be used) are included. A packet containing the Heirloom beads, creme Faux Pearls and specially dyed 1/16″ satin ribbon is also available.
