Kits · Hangings and Tapestries

The entire section of Hangings & Tapestries are now on sale for 50% off and less.

I would appreciate if you might want to pay attention to the "Ladies and Castle Tapestry." It is less than 50% off only because this particular tapestry does not sell well


...the results are not so well-known.

Give this little beauty a chance! Although not specified in the instructions, you can back-stitch the "dressed" areas of the the ladies ...and they "pop," but in a suttle way ...just so you know.

The colours are maganificent and the background's rich green colours promise a wonderful result!.

Please read through the description below regarding these kits as there have been changes made to them.

These kits include:
- a full-colour, easy to read, colour chart with symbols
- imported silk gauze
- 2 needles
- ample DMC floss, and instructions for stitching and finishing.

Additional to the above-mentioned supplies, you can also select one of two choices of an Ultrasuede® backing to finish the piece and make hanging loops (see below).

Or if you do not want to back your hanging or tapestry, enough Ultrasuede® will still be included to make loops to suspend it from a horizontal pole (which is not included in the kit).

NOTE: For your convenience, stitch counts are given for these patterns in case you do not wish to stitch on the count of gauze provided in the kit. Hence, you can request to stitch the kits on another size count of gauze and the required thread will be adjusted to work with your modified kit. Silk count gauze sizes are 24, 34, 40, 48, 58 and 75. Please make a note in the Comments section of your order form regarding the count of gauze you would like along with the colour(s) for the kit backings from the Ultrasuede colours below.

To determine the finished size, divide the width and height stitches by the count of Silk Gauze you wish to use. For example, if the stitch count is shown as 106 wide by 77 high, on 40 count the finished size would be 2.6" by 2" (106 divided by 40 and 77 divided by 40). If you wanted to use 48 count Silk Gauze then divide by 48 and so on...
