$0.00 – $20.00
Coming soon! The revised and updated Winter Roses counted thread booklet. You can reserve your copy now– there’s no charge to reserve, you won’t be billed until the books arrive from the printer (and it helps me know how many copies to order). Books are due in late September.
Winter Roses is one of a pair of companion samplers, along with Summer Vineyards.
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 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 gold Heirloom beads, creme Faux Pearls and SJ Designs 1/16″ satin ribbon is also available.
