All the kits and chart packs are prepared here at the Studio at Pink's Barn where we use the best quality Zweigart fabrics throughout our range. I have never understood why stitchers spend hours and hours on a piece of stitching but on cheap badly constructed fabrics. I hope you are never tempted!
Many of the packs have pre-sorted threads, so that you can start stitching straight away - no thread sorting to do. Smaller kits are sometimes supplied with a bundle of threads but only if the colours are easy to identify.
Our phone number is supplied on all the packs so please call if you have a problem and we will sort this for you by return.We do try to get things right the first time but even we make mistakes!
There are lots more kits in the shop so just click on the + sign and you will the long drop down menu. Do have fun browsing!
Designed and stitched by Jane Napier, this is one of a pair of lovely samplers inspired by the Mary Gollins sampler worked during the 18th century. The version in the picture was stitched on 32-count Belfast.
This brightly coloured band sampler would be an ideal first attempt at this very popular type of counted embroidery. The borders are taken from an old Czech sampler, kindly allowed by Zweigart and Sawitski.
These pretty scissor keepers were inspired by my trip to India in 2010. There are six in the series and you can choose from the drop down menu. There are further images if you click on the picture on the left.
