Baby Sampler Crewel Cross Stitch Kit
This contemporary needlepoint kit, is based on the popularity of Jacqui's Wedding Cross Stitch Kit, and the design she created for the Royal Wedding in 2010. The font of this chart has been designed by Jacqui and has become her signature. It is the same chart width as the classic Modern Wedding Sampler but a square.
30x30cm finished tapestry size
Each Craft Kit Contains:
- A Printed Canvas Bag to keep your stitching in
- Colour Coded Chart & Stitching Instruction Sheet, plus alphabet for personalisation, unless you opt for us to do this for you
- Cotton Canvas -10hpi (holes per inch)
- 2 ply crewel Appleton Pure English Wools
- Two quality John James Tapestry needles - one to use and one to keep!
- Needle threader
We use quality Zweigart canvas. We think that this is the best quality canvas you can buy. The HPI are the number of holes per inch on a straight line within the canvas - 10hpi is great for beginners, and 14 hpi is great for detail work. 7 hpi is great for kids to start crafting with.
We give you plenty of Appleton brothers 2 ply Crewel Wool or 4 ply Tapestry Wool (depending on the kit). Enough to stitch with the recommended stitch technique. Our wool is 100% British Virgin Wool - and it is the same wool as used by William Morris in his heritage designs, which is bought directly from source and hand twisted into hanks in our Sussex Studio.
Instructions & Chart Full instructions are also provided including detailed stitch charts and stitching diagrams, teaching you the basics of cross stitch techniques. The kit is a COUNTED CROSS STITCH chart and is not printed on the canvas - so each coloured square corresponds to the same colour cross stitch on the canvas. This provides for a more accurate finished stitched piece.
**PLEASE NOTE - The kit contains all you need to complete the cross stitch needlepoint piece and NOT the fabrics / frames or trims to finish your piece. Also whilst normally all the colours are as shown on the chart, sometimes we have to substitute colours due to supply which is out of our control.

Beautiful Baby Sampler :)))
Posted by Mary on 10th May 2014
This is my third kit from Jacqui P...( I am currently working on the long Butterfly one)...but I have put that to one side for the moment due to just starting this beautiful baby sampler :)
I am sewing it as a present for my God Daughter's Christening. I wanted to give a truly thoughtful gift that would make a real keepsake from her special day :)
I decided to opt for Jacqui to personalise it for me with the name and date as I am still quite new to cross stitch and it is extremely easy to follow. The colours and the design are simply stunning and it is such a pleasure to stitch :)
I am totally in love with all of Jacqui's designs and want to stitch them all! I truly have found such an amazing hobby and feel so proud of my efforts :) I am in love! Thank you to Jacqui and all the team once again x
