We all remember playing this traditional game of Snakes & Ladders as a child and no wonder this is our most popular kit! It is an innovative mix of Cross Stitch & Blackwork embroidery styles bringing life and structure to the backgrounds of the squares and creating a uniquely beautiful design.
The flexibility of a fabric games board is suited to so many different ways to fit our lifestyles:
* It 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 opportunity to create an Heirloom is here, - why not add a commemorative border to the board and gift to a child as a birthday or maybe christening present instead of a traditional sampler, the child could have it on the wall as a picture until they are old enough to use it to play with. Providing great memories and truly valued present.
Please Note: all our charts are for COUNTED stitching and are not printed onto fabric.
The Finished design size is 40 x 40cm (16 x 16 inches)
The Number of Thread Colours used is 12. We recommend DMC Stranded Cotton for our designs but can specify other manufacturers thread codes on request, please contact us for details.
The Fabric Count for this design is 18 count Aida. If you use another count the design will be scaled up and you will need a different amount of thread. 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
There are some fractional stitches used in this design.
