If you are looking for a new display piece for your home, or want to give someone a crafty gift, these kits are perfect. They all come with a detailed stitch guide booklet that gives a thorough explanation (with photos!) of the different stitches used, with my personal tips for each one.
You'll get two wooden hoops in each embroidery kit - one 8 inch bamboo 'working' hoop for use while you're stitching, as well as a gorgeous 8.5 inch (6.5 inch hoop in the three sky kits) beechwood display hoop. Once you've finished your project, you'll be able to re-use the bamboo working hoop for future projects!
The fabric provided for embroidering the pattern is 100% cotton, and a wool/viscose felt square is also included in the kit, for backing the display hoop.
The thread in all of the kits is DMC Mouliné special 25 - a 6 strand cotton embroidery thread.
It's so important to know that what you're spending your money on is something that has been carefully sourced to minimise the environmental impact. This is something we're constantly working on - there's always improvements that can be made! For now, you can be sure of the following:
There's no plastic used in these kits, or in the packaging.
All of the fabric and thread used is 100% natural - no synthetic material is used.
The paper used for the stitch guide and instructions is FSC certified, and the inks used for all of the printing required are environmentally friendly.
