If you are looking to stitch something special as a gift, or something a little different for yourself, why not try one of our Games Boards. This design is a Backgammon Board stitched in a mixture of cross stitch and blackwork with a Celtic theme Once finished your board can be framed or presented on a wooden board under glass to protect your hard-work and the love and passion you put into your stitching It is also foldable for travelling unlike many cardboard versions – we even have a customer who has leather backed her kits for use when camping It is cotton so can be washed in warm water without running - and irons well The 18 count Aida offers the tension required to provide a flat playing surface for the games pieces – linen can gather more if your tension is not uniform in your stitches The opportunity to create an Heirloom is here!
