I think it is important to help and encourage new stitchers. I try to list some needlepoint projects that won't scare them or overwhelm them.
There is no better way for a stitcher to learn to love needlepoint than a successfully stitched design. With the purchase of this kit I will include the Needlepoint Beginner's Manual I wrote:
Needlepoint Stuff No One Told Me When I Knew Nothing Or The Needlepoint Diet. It is free (and not kidding about the NP diet).
This adorable bee is checking out a large raspberry colored flower.
Bee & Flower is a hand painted, original design canvas by Jane Wheeler. I like Jane Wheeler's work, the color use is just wonderful.
While this needlepoint canvas is suitable for beginners, Experienced stitchers should feel free to ignore anything I write
The design area measures 6 X 6 inches. The entire canvas is 10.5 X 10.5 inches. it is an easy to stitch 14 mesh mono canvas.
I have assembled this kit using DMC #5 size Perle Cotton Floss. The rich colors and clean edged stitching with Perle Cotton will be perfect for Bee & Flower.
Most NewNeedlepoint.com canvases have carefully taped edges. I use Professional Artists Tape. It sticks very well.
Each kit includes the correct size tapestry 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 1-2 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.
