Dropcloth Sampler Kit - Milky Way
Dropcloth Samplers are designed by US based textile artist Rebecca Ringquist. A dropcloth is something that you can get messy, without worrying about making mistakes. The Milky Way Sampler is a freestyle sampler and can be worked in your own colour palette and stitch choice; the image shown uses mainly back stitch, running stitch and French Knots, but feel free to improvise! This is a great way to learn new stitches or brush up rusty embroidery skills.
This kit includes all you need to get started:
ne sampler, printed in black and white with a partially coloured background. Diameter of printed area approx 16cm.
Pack of japanese needles (type may vary)
Four Flora Danish threads - can be used single or muti-stranded
Wooden embroidery hoop
For best results, we recommend backing this fabric with a second piece of fabric (cotton or linen) before placing your fabric in the hoop. You'll get the flattest, most even stitches this way.
