Love this kit! I bought one for a friend and couldn't stop thinking about it, so came back and bought another for myself. This is a great way to get started with embroidery. It comes with everything you need to get started right away. - Lauren

Very nice kit!

I bought three kits and was really impressed when they arrived. I didn’t really pay attention to the hoop size when ordering and was pleasantly surprised when I saw how large this project is. The instructions were very well done, printed in color on a full sized, heavy weight booklet. I especially like the large, detailed picture of what the finished product is supposed to look like. The only thing I wish were included was the actual DMC number versus just the color name. A couple of the colors are really close to each other so I had to look them up on the DMC site. The tin case is so nice for holding the floss while I work. I look forward to completing the other 2 kits I bought and will likely buy more.

This is a gift and I can review it after the holidays. But what I like is that threads are included as well as instructions.

On the Canal Embroidery Kit

I'm really looking forward to stitching this one! I love how each kit has its own style, and depending on your mood, or where you want to display the finished piece, or the interests of someone for whom you might stitch it, you can find something from Stitched Stories that will be just right. As always, the colors are beautiful, and the kit comes complete with the beautiful design printed on cotton fabric, a hoop, enough floss to stitch it (more than once if you wanted to get an extra fabric piece to do so), a detailed stitching guide, and a box to hold the floss, needles, the charming teacup needle minder that comes with, and room for scissors you can add. So it's easy to bring the kit along wherever you might want to stitch!

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.
