KIT OF THE MONTH

The special for July 2016 is a discount on the Blackwork Study of Cats kit.

For other designs in blackwork visit the blackwork page of my website.

Prices on my website are in Canadian Dollars and are an excellent deal if you are living outside of Canada due to the low exchange rate.

All of my embroidery kits come with free on going critique and free email correspondence incase you have any questions about the kit you are working on. Each kit comes with detailed instructions and diagrams.

Blackwork Study of Cats Kit and 5 PDF File Lessons with Work-in-Progress Pictures Kit of the Month

The Blackwork Cats can be Worked and Framed as a Group

Or

The Blackwork Cats can be Worked and Framed Individually

Four patterns are worked on the blackwork study of cats design, which will be the same four patterns that are worked on the blackwork elephant. Each cat will have its own blackwork pattern and the cat will be shaded with the blackwork stitches by changing the thickness of the thread (three different thicknesses of thread are used) and by changing the density of the the pattern.

Emphasis in this intermediate blackwork kit is to get away from using outlines to neaten up edges and concentrate on an artistic look to the embroidery creating depth and dimension with the blackwork patterns and shading. You do not have to have an artistic eye to work the intermediate study of cats as I break down the embroidery into stages that will guide you through the embroidery.

The kit and instructions are sent by mail and the 5 PDF files with work-in-progress pictures are sent by email.

This is an excellent kit to prepare you for working the Blackwork Elephant design.

I am offering free correspondence and free on going critique for this kit, for more details go to - Free on going critique.

Fabric

There is a choice of fabrics to work the blackwork design.

I suggest working the blackwork cats on 32 count Belfast linen fabric if you want to stitch the blackwork elephant embroidery.

32 count antique white Monika fabric (50% cotton and 50% Modal). The fabric has even weave threads (all threads are the same thickness) and is soft and smooth to the touch. The patterns come out more even on the even weave fabric compared to the linen fabric.

32 count antique white Belfast 100% Linen fabric with uneven weave threads (different thicknesses) giving a natural look.

28 count antique white Lugana fabric (52% cotton and 48% Rayon). The fabric has even weave threads (all threads are the same thickness). The patterns come out more even on the even weave fabric compared to the linen fabric.

28 count antique white Cashel 100% Linen fabric with uneven weave threads (different thicknesses) giving a natural look.
