Keep Calm 
Stitch this beautiful Bookmark!! 
Free Pattern
Designed by Thea Dueck

At the top is a crown, significant in the Keep Calm tradition. The crown is also part of our history of traditional sampler motifs. Stitch this on any colour linen, and enjoy practicing or learning the lovely herringbone stitches, cute little eyelets, partial rice stitches, scotch stitches, cute four-sided stitches, then some Rhodes butterflies and waves of Bargello at the bottom. What a great idea to share free patterns online! I hope you enjoy this wee beginner’s “Whitework” project! - Thea

Just click on the links below to find the pattern, including list of suggested materials.

Optional: Stitch your own version, using your own colour choices or additional design elements, and send a good photo to me at:  We look forward to any and all contributions, and hope to publish the best of them in upcoming newsletter!   - Thea
