Beautiful Pattern

I love the colors and variety of stiches in this pattern. I have purchased several kits and patterns from this shop and have loved all of them.

Quality kits

I’ve tried many embroidery kits and Stitched Stories are the best! I recommend it to all my friends who wants to give to their grandchildren as beginners and experienced stitchers who love the quality designs that Debbie creates. Her descriptions of the kits, her videos featuring a new design are always motivational. If you are looking to try for the first time or extra projects to pile on, look no further. These designs are exceptions and directions are the clearest I’ve seen in any kit.

It is just beautiful. I can’t wait to start working on it. I have “Christmas Mantle “ that I want to finish first. The directions are so easy to follow with your kits. Very nice.

Choose Love Fabric Pattern

Very nice quality fabric, easy to stitch through and work with. The colors seem to make it a bit easier to stitch the design. The instructions are very clear with great photos and printed on thick, quality paper. I only purchased the Fabric Pattern but, based on the quality, would not hesitate to order a full kit in the future. Highly recommend!

FAQs

Can I do this if I've never embroidered?

Yes. All the instructions you'll need are included. If you've never handled a needle and thread, it might take a while to get comfortable. Take your time, keep your thread length under 18", and just be sure you're not tangling things and that you're pulling the thread all the way through. Once you've got this rhythm established with simple straight stitches, you can keep adding to the stitches you've mastered. The stitching guides actually tell you which stitches to start with on a design if you're new to embroidery.

I see the option to add on scissors and needle minder. Do I need them?

You don't need a needle minder. It's simply a nice extra: it attaches to your work in progress with a magnet and will hold your needle when you need to put it down. 

You will need scissors, but any scissors that you have already will also work. Our scissors are the right size for fitting into the storage tin that comes with each kit, and I like having a few pairs for my my many works in progress.

What can I do with my finished project?

You can finish it in the hoop and hang it or get a frame with a circular cutout and glass cover. My favorite thing to do is to finish the design in a nicer hoop and then display on plate stand or small easel. I add it to styled vignettes around my house.

Will the printed pattern wash out?

No. You may wash your finished project but the printed design will not wash away.

What's the difference between kits and fabric prints?

The kits include not only the fabric print but also floss, needles, a storage tin, and hoop. The fabric prints include just the fabric print and the stitching guide. You will need to supply hoop, needles, and floss.
