Where has the year gone?
Stitching on Waste Canvas
So now we've got you 'stitching something a bit different', where can you put it? After a few years of stitching, wall space becomes a premium - I certainly have none left!
So why not stitch and wear? The key to stitching onto clothes is to use waste canvas. Using waste canvas is not difficult if you are an experienced cross stitcher and it will enable you to create a truly unique finish to a plain article of clothing.
Items such as t-shirts, sweatshirts, a pocket on a jacket or a plain canvas bag can be made to look really chic by adding a unique cross stitched design. A larger design can look fantastic on a t-shirt, with smaller ones suiting pencil cases or jacket pockets.
For more information on using waste canvas, please see the link below.
One of our regular customers loves to stitch on waste canvas to make t-shirts. Here's her husband modelling one of our designs at Alexandra Palace!
Stitchtastic On Tour
Thanks to those who came to see us at the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate. It was a great 4 days, lots of new people who hadn't seen our designs before, then some who had obviously made a beeline for us!
We'll be at a number of other stitching shows over in 2009, starting in March at the NEC, click here for more details.
Well, we had to mention Christmas somewhere! Have a lovely holiday season, I hope you get lots of time for stitching!
Happy New Year! In our January newsletter, we'll talk about stitching for charity, and give you some ideas to fill in the cold, dark, January days now you don't have to stitch Christmas cards and presents for another year.
