The 4th of July is right around the corner! Where did our summer go? And with July comes the realization that the Holidays are just 6 months away! If I want to make my Gifts this year I really need to get going on them! Have you started on your Holiday gifts? or are you looking for some NEW decorating pieces? If you are we have a great Block of the Month that will get you stitching and ready for the Holidays!
Our Block of the Month called Christmas Past will start to ship in August, and will only last for 4 month, which means it will be done just in time for the Holidays! Christmas Past is only $21.00 each month for 4 months (which includes shipping), and will start to be billed in July; that way when August 1 rolls around we can start to ship with no delays! Pattern is sold SEPARATELY and must be purchased if you need the pattern, if you already have the pattern then you are half way there!
Christmas Past is a wool on wool BOM with easy stitching and will make a great gift for a family member or friend or BOTH! Each month you will receive a collection of wools to start making each “patch” on your wool background.
The last month you will receive your wool background, binding and backing to complete the wall hanging. Once finished Christmas Past is a wonderful size at just 18”x24”. There will be a Thread Kit available for those of you would like to purchase one, or you can check your Valdani stash and order only the ones that you will need. REMEMBER: IF ordering the full kit, you will get a discount price on the FULL collection of threads, Thread Kit with shipping is only $70.00 THREADS USED:#12: 1, 5, 0775, JP12, 812, 0196, 8111, 822, 882, 122, 0503, 178/0178, 0154, 0575
In your first packet you will find a swatch chart that will inform you on what is needed in each month, and what you will need to cut out of that piece of wool, as you will be using them in multiple months. This is a great starter project as well if you are just getting into wool applique. Sign up TODAY and get started on your Holiday Stitching!
