Buy the Tulip Sampler Student Kit of Thea's exclusive designs! Stitch this sweet little sampler full of tulips! Tulips are close to my heart. Every year, when we still lived in Amsterdam, my family would drive out of the city and through the tulip fields of Keukenhof to celebrate the return of spring! Seeing the carpets of nature’s colour must have influenced me even then, because I simply love masses of bright colour in all areas of my life..! The third of what will be a collection of lovely learning samplers focused on cottages and garden flowers, and stitched with luscious over-dyed silks, silk flosses, Perle Cotton, and sparkling beads on cream linen, it is perfectly designed for learning! It is not too big, so you can more effectively master how to stitch the few lovely specialty stitches like Bargello, Couching, Arrowhead, Foliage Stitch, Diagonal Queen Stitch, Fir Stitch, Triple Rice, Lazy Daisy, Stitching over one fabric thread, Smyrna Cross and French Knots; some simple Drawn Thread. Cross Stitched areas at the top and bottom depict a Delft Pot of Tulips picked from the fields surrounding the little cottage. Follow our clear and simple diagrams included in this leaflet and enjoy the journey to Tulip Terrace! To finish, instructions to create a pillow or wall hanging are at the back of this leaflet. You can find some stitch and finishing videos on our Youtube channel. -Thea

Sorting 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 light bulbs we use. Packaged in Bundles for easier sorting!!! :) To make your thread sorting much easier, we have sorted your fibers into bundles within the Accessory Pack. Each of these bundles contains at least one easily identifiable thread so you can tell which bundle is which. 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. Dinky Dyes has 6 strands per length. FYI: We noticed that some colours have been divided into two lengths. This can happen if a colour requires 1.5 yards. Our kit maker might include one 1 yard length and one 0.5 yard length, so don't get confused if one colour has more than one length of thread. We hope this extra information will help you sort your threads more easily!
