Petite Needlepoint Embroidery Kit: Winter Snowman
During my training at the Royal School of Needlework, I fell in love with canvaswork or needlepoint as it is also called. The technique is relatively unknown in Continental Europe. Most people there associate it with the boldly coloured simple designs their grandmothers worked in simple tent stitch on huge stiff canvasses and turned into cushions. That's why I came up with what I call 'petite needlepoint'. Instead of using a cumbersome stiff canvas, my designs are worked on 40 ct linen. This way you can still enjoy working all the fun geometric stitches with beautiful speciality threads but on a much finer scale. I am sure you will love the technique and the high-end materials in this kit!
Charming Mister Snowman is made up of several varieties within the Hungarian Diamond family of needlepoint stitches. The beautiful hand-dyed variegated raw silk embroidery threads made by House of Embroidery ensure that each finished piece will be truly unique. The design also uses chain stitch, French knots and simple beading. The finished design measures c. 8,5 x 8,5 cm.
The PDF instructions with many clear pictures and stitch diagrams come in either English, Deutsch, Francais or Nederlands. I will email those to you during business hours. A kit with all materials (House of Embroidery hand-dyed threads, hand-painted carrot charm, beads, fabric and needles) will be shipped to you as soon as possible. It is recommended to work this design in an embroidery hoop or on a frame. Mister Snowman is part of a series of four designs: Spring is in the Air, a Summer Sunflower and an Autumn Pumpkin. Collect them all and frame them together for a stylish piece of stitched art!
