|We all owe a debt of gratitude to the emergency services in one way or another, and what better way to say thank you than by stitching them a tribute? We have a wide range of 999 designs (the phone number, not how many we've got!!), whether you'd like to stitch for a friend, a relative or a hard working police, ambulance or fire officer.|
Firstly, here's our ambulance design. It's colourful and bright, with plenty of blocky bits for the easy stitching evenings in front of the TV. It uses 19 DMC colours and when stitched on 14 count aida it measures 14.3" by 9.6". The ambulance kit costs £35.95, have a closer look at http://www.stitchtastic.com/product/paramedic-ambulance-cross-stitch-kit.aspx .
Next, we have several designs for the hard working police force. Police cars are well catered for in our range, with 2 designs to choose from, a Mondeo car and a Volvo. The Mondeo kit costs £29.95 and uses 12 DMC colours, measuring 11.6" by 7". It's a real action design and will impress any high speed police driver!
The second police car is a Volvo and the kit also costs £29.95. It measures 13.4" by 9.5" so is the slightly bigger of the two designs, using 20 DMC colours.
If your police friend or relative is a little more on the daring side, perhaps they'd appreciate our riot Transit van design, which measures 12.9" by 10.4" when stitched on 14 count aida. It uses 14 DMC colours and costs £35.95 for the kit. Remember, all of these designs are also available as charts for £10.95 each.
Our final emergency service designs are for the (supposedly) hunkiest of all, the firemen (perhaps you know differently!). OK, that's a terrible cliche and there are fire officers from both genders, not all of whom are hunky(!) but there's no harm in a little cliche to sell cross stitch, is there? We have 2 fire engine designs, both available as kits and charts.
The London fire engine design costs £29.95 and is very striking and colourful. It uses 15 DMC colours and measures 13" by 9.4".
Slightly larger is the Dennis Firetruck design, measuring 14.3" by 9.6". It uses more DMC colours, 24 in total and is the more expensive of the two at £35.95.
Hopefully one of our emergency service designs will fit the bill for your emergency service worker. If you are that worker and you're stitching for yourself or your crew, we'd love to hear from you and you would definitely be featured in an upcoming newsletter!
Very colourful - you wouldn't miss this coming towards you!
Mondeo Police Car - super fast!
The more sturdy Volvo Police Car.
I predict a riot!
Mummy, why are all fire engines called Dennis?
