Gingerbread Flower Shop Leaflet
Part 10 of the Gingerbread Christmas Village Series
Finally, we are releasing the Gingerbread Flower Shop as a Leaflet and Accessory Pack! It is the10th addition to the Gingerbread Village; including the Tree Etui, the Stitching House, Church, Candy Cane Cottage, Bakery, Haunted House, Needlework Shop, Quilt Shop, and Retreat Cottage! this little Gingerbread Flower Shop looks positively European with its striped awnings and colourful floral display! At the front of the shop, you’ll see buckets full of cut flowers, a topiary tree with French Knot blossoms, A potted Christmas Tree and a potted Sunflower, while the shopkeeper brings out a flat of forget-me-nots. On the back, you see more staff working at their potting counter where there are a variety of flowers. On the two sides are fantasy specialty stitched flowers to learn to stitch! The roof is decorated with white buttons and Cross Stitched snow patterns, and there are a few lovely vines under the eaves. You will be stitching with yummy silk flosses, Perle Cottons, silk ribbon, sparkling beads and delicious looking ‘candy’ buttons. This building was not lined, which makes finishing easier and faster! Finishing instructions and colour photos are included at the end of this leaflet. Look for more Gingerbread Village additions in future years! -Thea

NEW! - Home Study videos on Youtube!
Once you've bought your Leaflet and Accessory Pack, or full Student Kit, come and join our Youtube Channel, where you will find Thea, Lisa and other stitchers stitching this delightful design! There is lots of help, and you can get started sorting your threads, putting your linen on your frame. This project is for Intermediate Level stitchers. Our Youtube Channel shows our excellent STITCH VIDEOS teaching you how to do the special stitches for this design. The videos also show Lisa and Thea's FINISHING VIDEOS so you can see how to construct it!
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 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!
