Embrace the mindful hobby of embroidery with a coordinated bundle of 3 all-in-one kits.
With the kits in First Stitches, you can start a hand embroidery practice or get back to one after years away. These designs give you a few easy stitches to start with and then progressively add in manageable complexity.
Quality materials include: patterns color-printed to cotton fabric, full skeins of DMC-brand floss, hoops, and needles. You also get handy extras: a hinged storage tin and an enamel needle minder with each of the 3 kits.
Experienced needle crafters enjoy working a range of stitches, while those new to embroidery use the illustrated project guide to master a comfort craft suited to all generations.
KITS IN THIS BUNDLE
The variety of stitches in "Patchwork" are a big part of the design's charm. You'll embroider a quilt-inspired patchwork of pattern and color. As you piece together stars and blossoms, waves and a honeycomb, you'll also be mastering classic embroidery stitches. The finished hoop-art looks great on display year-round and makes a wonderful gift for creatives and pattern lovers in your life.
Start with Coffee
Start with Coffee is an easy and fun kit to embroider for any one who loves a cup of joe and the beginning of a new day. You'll render the featured saying with three different stitches to go with the three different font treatments. Other details include rays of a sunrise weaving through the motifs along with a partial doily edging that evokes the sense of a coffee filter. It's an engaging project with a variety of traditional hand embroidery stitches.
Hen & Fox
The imagery on "Hen & Fox" has you rendering farm motifs in a variety of classic embroidery stitches--which makes this an absorbing and satisfying project. Barn, silo, and windmill create a perfect backdrop for the folk-art hen and fox. You'll love stitching all the areas of this design and putting it on display when it's complete.
