A full alphabet is provided for you to add either a name and initials or a year.
The pack has full instructions with cross stitch basics and tips for fine stitching
The clear colour chart has both symbols and coloured squares and so it is beautifully easy to read
Stitch away with no delay! ~ no need to spend time sorting colours because they come threaded on a card
If you wish to use your own threads you can buy the chart only pack with just the colour chart and full instructions.
If you wish to make your fabric look older you can use the tea-dyeing method which is included with the instructions
The sampler in the picture was tea-dyed before stitching in order to make it appear antiquated.
Alternatively you can buy the kit with antique aida which is a shade of parchment.

Evenweave has a more refined appearance but is trickier to work with so for the experienced stitcher
