“Stitching Under the Oaks” Needlepocket was created to convey that sense of loving cameraderie we feel as we stitch together. It is stitched on a light blue cashel linen with lovely silk flosses, to reflect the beautiful blue skies and bright colours of Florida, a tropical paradise where I’ve taught some special students. I really enjoyed including some different motifs of the area, including tables with stitchers sitting under the moss laden live Oak Trees, a lovely Hardanger Heart with a Blanket Stitched flower in the center, palm trees, the lake, pink roses, and even two wee Florida alligators to keep those pesky stitching errors at bay! The flamingo charms are a whimsical touch.
You will find many additional specialty stitches and tidbits on both the front and back of this pocket, including some drawn thread work, and some silk ribbon work to have fun with! There is an area at the lower front of the pocket to include your name and date to personalize your pocket (you can even accomodate a longer name than shown, if necessary). Be prepared to learn some new techniques and have some fun stitching the many Cross Stitched areas. To finish, instructions to create a pillow or wallhanging are at the back of this leaflet. and there are also special Stitch and Finishing Videos avaialble online. Just go to our Website to see where we’ve put them! The accompanying pinkeep and scissors case will also surely capture your hearts!
I hope you will take this set to future reatreats where we truly are drawn together in friendship as we stitch! 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!
