More new designs
|Alright, it's more of a festival of stitching, but you try thinking of a catchy line about tractors! We have a range of 5 tractor designs, all available as kits and charts. Tractors are always popular for stitchers, whether they're farmers themselves or simply love a good tractor!|
Firstly, the oldest tractor in our range. It's an old fashioned open cab David Brown and appeals to the tractor purists! Measuring 10" by 8.6", it uses 11 DMC colours and the kit costs £24.95. Have a look at http://www.stitchtastic.com/product/david-brown-tractor-cross-stitch-kit.aspx for more details.
Next, probably our most popular tractor design, a John Deere in its recognisable green livery. It is quite a large design, measuring 13.6" by 10.6" and it uses 20 DMC colours, with quite a lot of green! It's a great stitch though, and not too difficult as it contains some nice block areas to stitch in front of the TV. The kit costs £29.95 and can be found at http://www.stitchtastic.com/product/john-deere-tractor-cross-stitch-kit.aspx.
IIf you prefer a Massey Ferguson to a John Deere, have a look at our next design. It's a bright red Massey tractor, measuring 14.3" by 10.2" and has a bit of a plough theme (have a look behind the back wheel). Kids in particular love this design as it is so bright and colourful. Being one of our biggest designs, it costs £35.95 and comes with Zweigart aida (as do all of our kits) and 23 DMC threads presorted onto thread cards to help you with your organisation. Have a look at http://www.stitchtastic.com/product/massey-ferguson-tractor-cross-stitch-kit.aspx for more info.
Our final two tractors cover the other most popular tractor makes, Ford and Fiat. The Ford tractor design also shows a plough and is very bold in blue and yellow. It's another big design, measuring 14.1" by 10.7" and uses 25 colours, costing £35.95 for the kit. The FIat Agri 880 design measures 14.3" by 10.4" and uses slightly less colours (19). It costs £29.95 and can be found at http://www.stitchtastic.com/product/fiat-agri-880-tractor-cross-stitch-kit.aspx .

Featured Artist - Patrick Scott
As you know from this and previous newsletters, Patrick usually sticks to the computer side of Stitchtastic, designing our online store from scratch and keeping the order system working and up to date. However, he has always wanted to try his hand at designing, as he enjoys stitching but likes to tackle unusual projects. Well, here at Stitchtastic we all like to try 'something different', so he is simply extending our theme.
Very apt, believe me!.
He doesn't really like to shop that much!.
I can't guarantee it, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that next month we'll feature one of our other new artists. Don't quote me on that though.......
See you then!
