The Present sampler cross stitch kit details

The Present sampler cross stitch kit has only top quality materials ~ Zweigart fabric, golden gauze, DMC thread.
The pack has full instructions with cross stitch basics and tips for fine stitching

The layer of gauze is partially transparent, so the stitches are made through it on to the aida (or evenweave)
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
For a personal touch a completion slip adds your name and date to the back of your work
So future generations in your family will know who created this heirloom.

The chart only pack contains just the colour chart and full instructions.

You can choose to buy this kit on either 14 aida or 27 count evenweave
evenweave has a more refined appearance but is trickier to stitch (follow this link to view)
so 14 count is a wiser choice for the less experienced stitcher.

Stitches –  Whole cross stitch, backstitch
Ability –    For stitchers with experience
Fabric –     14 ivory aida or 27 evenweave

Size –          26 x 32 cms / 10 x 13″
Item no – LTS-76

You can also purchase this lovely verse sampler from the Ebay shop or from  Amazon

This verse is attributed to Alice Morse Earle (1874-1911) who was an American historian and author.
The full verse is:
‘The clock is running. Make the most of today.
Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift.
That’s why it is called the present.’
