'A Year of Cross Stitch' 2024
Make 2024 your year for cross stitching! This is a unique cross stitch kit to take you through 2024 with a joyful mini cross stitch to work on each month. A perfect excuse to enjoy some relaxing stitch time over the year. Each design is inspired by my collection of vintage needlework books - and there are so many motifs you can use again in other projects.
The kits are packaged in a cute tin, to store all your cross stitch supplies in, as well as two hoops to use to stitch the designs. Each design is individually packaged for every month of the year in a recyclable glassine bag and includes a full colour chart, aida, needle and DMC threads. Each project is designed to be displayed in a hoop - there are two included but you can buy extra in the Make shop!
There is also a booklet on 'How to Cross Stitch' with a guide on how to get stitching and tips an tutorials on how to present your stitched projects.
Each tin includes:
- 12 x original cross stitch projects for each month of the year (each one containing 16 count Aida, steel needle, DMC threads and colour chart)
- two x 4" embroidery hoops
- 'How to Cross Stitch' Booklet
- Set of bobbins to wind your threads onto (in case you want to use them to stitch any extra motifs from the designs).
*please note - this kit only contains TWO 4" hoops*
You will need: Sharp scissors and refreshments (never craft without a cuppa and cake!) and a few hours spare each month to stitch each project.
Each finished cross stitch design measures approx 10 x 10cm (to fit a 4" hoop). The metal tin is approx 22cm x 16cm x 9cm (great to use as a needlework tin!).
The projects are suitable for beginners but contain small parts so is not suitable for under 14's and it is not a toy. Should be used under the direct supervision of an adult.
All of our kits are designed and put together in The Make Arcade studio in Salisbury, UK.
