Perfect piece for slow mindful stitching. I absolutely adore this stitchery kit - April Lopez

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Embrace the mindful hobby of embroidery with an all-in-one kit.

You'll get a color-printed pattern designed to make your stitching experience absorbing and relaxing. Quality materials and handy extras (storage tin & needle minder) make it easy to get started with embroidery--and keep going.

The variety of stitches in Sit A While's detailed design give you hours of embroidery pleasure. The room's many elements offer up opportunities to render pattern and texture with ten classic hand-embroidery stitches.

You'll stitch a mix of geometric and organic lines. The finished project has a strong color story of gray, blue and mustard. The motifs are those of home and retreat with an interesting foliage flip: the green leaves are inside while those outside are golden.

Experienced stitchers will enjoy the range of stitches, while those who are new to needle crafts will use the clear and complete how-tos to master this mindful hobby.

Relax and create with a comfort craft suited to all generations.

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.

ABOUT

Immerse yourself in the imagery, color, and classic embroidery stitches. Recall your life’s past stories and consider the new ones possible.
