This kit is very special because it features hand dyed silk thread from The Thread Gatherer. This kit is now available in two color schemes - the original BRIGHTS! or the new subtle tones of MUTED!
Your kit includes:
- Four colors of hand dyed variegated silk thread. Each kit contains 2.5 yards of 12 ply silk (in EACH COLOR!!), so you should have plenty to work with. The majority of the cost of this kit is due to the inclusion of these fine specialty fibers. - A piece of cotton fabric pre-printed with the design - A 6 inch wooden embroidery hoop - 2 needles (just in case!)
Your purchase will give you access to one PDF. Included in this pattern are two designs. When I stitched up the sample hoop (in the bright colors, pictured above) I accidentally used the old version of the pattern. It was way faster for me to just add that pattern to the pdf versus restitching the hoop! So my mistake and laziness is your benefit! I still recommend using the newer version of the pattern but now you have an extra design to stitch with all of that lovely silk coming your way!
The simple five page pattern includes: - Stitch and Color key to stitch 2 different versions of this pattern - Suggested The Thread Gatherer silk colors - Directions for using the silk floss from The Thread Gatherer - Full color close up photo of stitched patterns - PDF design sized for a 6 inch hoop ready to print (feel free to shrink or enlarge!) Note: If you would like a print out of the PDF included with your kit please email me ASAP.
The interactive beginner guide is available online HERE and includes: - A supplies list with suggested products based off of my experience - Helpful tips and tricks - Diagrams of stitches
