Kits for Beginners

These kits were created with the novice or beginner in mind. If you have never done needlepoint before or have never stitched on silk gauze before or have never worked on counts1 this small, then these kits are for you! The purpose is to introduce you to the joy of petitpoint. These kits contain much more extensive information and detailed instructions than the regular kits. The patterns have been kept simple so even if you haven't stitched from a chart before you will not be overwhelmed.

The kits include:
- an easy-to-read chart with a symbol in each colour-coded square
- imported 100% silk gauze
- ample DMC embroidery floss
- 2 needles
- complete stitching and finishing instructions.

1NOTE: The count refers to the number of stitches per inch, i.e., 24 stitches to the horizontal inch and 24 to the vertical inch which equals 576 stitches in one square inch. Commonly, all stitching fabric is referred to in this manner, be it canvas, cross-stitch cloth, linen or silk gauze, congress cloth, etc.
