Buy this Student Kit! It’s party time! If you’ve always wanted to stitch something to celebrate the fun and joy of life, stitch this one..! I designed this Class project as a Birthday Sampler, as you can tell by the photographs. However, many of our students wanted to stitch this to celebrate other things, like an engagement, graduation or a promotion, so I charted different lettering and the “Celebrate” Sampler was born. We’ve included both words in this leaflet, so you can decide which word suits you best! At the top of the sampler is a fragrant chocolate cake with pink icing surrounded by a garland of hearts and flowers. Under the cake is a band of lace-like a tablecloth. Then some lovely specialty stitches surrounded by vines and hearts and more flowers! Below you’ll find another drawn thread band, with the words “Happy Birthday” with musical notes, or the word “Celebrate” with stars. At the bottom, you will find the Hardanger flower motif. The model is stitched on a 28ct Light Sand Linen, but you can choose different coloured linen to suit different people or events, still using our brightly coloured silks. I think these colours and beads would look fabulous on Blue or on antique white linen! Frame or finish as a bellpull and gift your family or friends on their special days and you can celebrate those days with them! - Thea

Sorting The Threads in your Accessory Pack:
Remember to sort in daylight near a window, not under artificial light indoors, as the colours change with the colour of the lightbulbs we use. Each floss has a different number of strands in each thread length. This helps you differentiate the different colours in your pack. Needlepoint Inc. silk floss has 8 strands per length The Kreinik Mori has 6 strands per length The Gloriana Overdyed Silk has 12 thin strands per length.
FYI: some colours could have been divided into two lengths. This can happen if a colour requires partial yardage. ie. Our kitmaker might include one 1 yard length and one 0.5 yard length, so don't be surprised if one colour has more than one length of thread. We hope this extra information will help you sort your threads more easily!
