Summer Kitchen Embroidery BOM by Crabapple Hill
We have something really special for all our embroidery lovers! It's a step back in time to a vintage kitchen! We've packaged the kits in colors and fabrics similar to those shown on the pattern cover.
The monthly kit includes the patterns and fabrics. If you want an optional Cosmo floss kit in the colors listed in the pattern, please let us know as it is not included in the kits. (We know many of you already have a lot of floss colors so we're making the floss kit optional). Our sample will be shaded with colored pencils (colored by Carol) and hand embroidered (by Barb). It's up to you if you want plain embroidery, without shading the designs, or to use colored pencils or crayons. (Pencils and/or crayons are not included in the pricing.) Limited to 7 participants.
Finished size: 56" x 56"
Starting in early 2021(Jan or Feb)

Binding Eaze - it's like an extra hand at the ironing board!

Thread Cutterz Ring - designed to cut fishing line!
Thread Cutterz have a super sharp ceramic blade leaving a clean cut on the end of your thread. Designed to wear as a thumb ring, the adjustable velcro strap will also wrap around a spool of thread for hand sewing. The ring keeps your thread from uncoiling and the blade is right where you need it when you want to cut a new piece of thread. Carol loves it for hand sewing bindings. Barb loves it for applique.
