This contemporary needlepoint kit, is based on one of our favourite nostalgic catch phrases.. at a super long 90cm it is perfect for a draught excluder, long bed / sofa bolster.. or as a framed piece. The simplicity of the design and use of tapestry yarn on an open 7 hpi canvas, mean this is perfect for beginners to get there teeth into.
Jacqui Used our Large POM POM maker to make up and stitch in the pom poms at the end.
Canvas - 7hpi 90x26cm TAPESTRY
Quality Zweigart canvas. We think that this is the best quality canvas you can buy.
We give you plenty of Appleton brothers 4 ply tapestry wool. Enough to stitch with the recommended stitch technique. Only one strand of wool is needed for tapestry designs and a double fold yarn for the crewel wool.
All wool is supplied in neat twisted hanks, if there are two shades of a similar colour they will be individually labelled with the Appleton codes so that it's easy to organise your shade card.
Two quality John James tapestry needles - one to use and one to keep! You could always have 2 yarns on the go.
Instructions & Chart
Full instructions are provided including detailed stitch charts and stitching diagrams.
**PLEASE NOTE - The kit is a COUNTED CROSS STITCH chart and is not printed on the canvas. The kit contains all you need to complete the cross stitch needlepoint piece and NOT the fabrics / frames or trims to finish your piece. But we do offer all of these items for sale on our site... 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.

We played the Morecombe and Wise track as we walked down the aisle! So this was the perfect first project for me. The packaging and contents were top quality and when I ran out of yarn at the last moment - they sent me some more straight away. Love it
