Where Stitchers Gather...

                         SCISSORS CASE AND NEEDLEBOOK 

The “Where Stitchers Gather” Needlepocket conveys that sense of loving cameraderie that steals over us as we stitch together, whether in person, or online. We truly are drawn together in friendship as we stitch! It is stitched on raw linen cashel to suggest the antique needlework ‘smalls’ reminiscent of earlier times. I really enjoyed including all the different elements of our stitching retreats, including a table of stitchers, two swans in honour of the “Society of Women Addicted to Needlework”, and two wee frogs to keep those pesky stitching errors at bay! There are 14 different specialty stitches that make up each of the pink flower motifs within the bands. Also, you will find many additional specialty stitches and tidbits on both the front and back of this pocket, including a lovely Hardanger heart with a gold scissors charm, and even some drawn thread work to have fun with! There is an area at the lower back of the pocket to include your name and date or other writing, and you can even accomodate a longer name than shown, if necessary! You will enjoy learning all sorts of great specialty stitch techniques, as this project is meant for the dedicated stitcher. Be prepared to learn some new techniques, as well as the fun stitching of the many Cross Stitched areas, so you can relax and stitch together without losing your concentration. The accompanying needlebook, scissors case and fob will also surely capture your hearts. I hope you take this set of ‘smalls’ along on many future stitching retreats. - Thea :)
