This is a show-stopper. This is a whole body design of a serious & glowering Samurai warrior in movement. The clothes, his face and the body movement here are done very well. This is clearly the work of a very talented & experienced needlepoint artist.

This is a very big, wonderful needlepoint canvas. it is a hand Painted original design by Sophia. Sophia used to design canvases for Lee Needle Arts, before Mrs Lee retired (Colonial Needle owns them now).

Sophia is now in business for herself and her work is excellent (I also list a beautiful fan canvas by Sophia here on NewNeedlepoint).

So, how big is it? The design area measures 27.5 X 22 inches. The entire canvas is 31 X 25.5 inches. It is 14 mesh canvas.

There are 19 colors and 2 Metallics colors used in The Samurai.

I have assembled this kit using DMC #5 size Perle Cotton Floss & Kreinik #16 size Metallic Braid Thread. This kit uses 43 skeins of DMC and 8 spools of Kreinik Metallic.

The colors Sophia choose are wonderful and I have stayed close to them in this kit. The only real change I made is that the background is done in DMC # 677. It is a dark cream color with a hint of yellow. A very Oriental looking background color, I think.

The Samurai should be stitched using 1 strand of either the floss or the metallic thread.

I have shown just 1 skein or spool of each color used. The whole pile of them is pretty big and would not have shown well in a picture.

All NewNeedlepoint canvases have folded and machine hemmed edges or carefully taped canvases edges. Which one depends on how much white canvas is left outside the design area.

Each kit includes the correct size needle for this canvas.

The amounts of floss or yarn shown in the pictures are for color only, the actual amounts sent may vary from what is shown. The colors will not vary (at least not very much).

Needlepoint thread coverage is not an exact science. I try to make sure there is plenty to finish each canvas with some to spare. If you run short e-mail me and I will send you more at no extra cost.

Remember to stitch 2-3 additional rows all around the completed canvas for finishing.

Large needlepoint canvases will be rolled and sent in a mailing tube,smaller canvases will be sent flat in a padded envelope.

I do not offer finishing services.
