Description

This happy little pair of blackwork mushrooms proves a real hit at workshops.

Completed in Back stitch and Holbein stitch on a pre drawn background, this project offers a range of balckwork techniques.

The design can be completed on evenweave or Aida and everything you need except a water soluble fabric marker and scissors is in the kit.

Using a water soluble ink allows any visible lines to be easily removed once the design is complete by dabbing with a moistened cotton pad.

Shading is achieved by the use of different thread grades and part stitches.

Blackwork embroidery is very rewarding and therapeutic to stitch, it is very similar to cross stitch but works quite quickly and once you can see where you are going with the design, there is no need to keep looking at the chart, except to see where threads and stitches change.

The threads supplied are of the highest quality soft, mercerised 100% cotton.

The kit comes complete with chart and full instructions and the finished piece measures approx. 13 x 13cm.
Stitch tutorials are included in this kit so is suitable for beginners.

The kit contains;

Chart and instruction leaflet (English text).
25 count Zweigart evenweave antique white (approx 22 x 22cm)
Finest blackwork mercersied 100% cotton threads.
High quality John James needle.
Tracing paper.

YOU WILL NEED:
Scissors
Water soluble fabric marker

This kit arrived earlier this week and is nicely packaged and has everything needed to make the item.
The instructions look clear and the end product looks like it will be beautiful (depending on my skill!).
The only reason I didn't give this 'excellent' is due to the fact that there's no print out for the stitches required, I'm going to look them up on YouTube as I think I know what I'm doing, but a simple print out showing how to do these stitches would be useful for others.
Overall, I'd buy this kit again, or another kit from the same maker.

Response from Maire Curtis Lakeland Studio:

Hello Louise,
Thank you for your feedback and I am glad you are pleased with your kit.
I have noted your comment about the stitch guide but we do state that prior knowledge of the stitches is required so I will attempt to make this clearer on the item description.
Many thanks and happy stitching.
Maire.
