Everyone loves a beach vacation! Relaxing under an umbrella, walking along the beach, sand in the toes, waves gently lapping over your feet, finding interesting shells – can I go away right now? June’s Kit of the Month features several stitched seashells, coral and a treasure, a glass 6mm pearl. On 18 ct. mono deluxe Aquamarina canvas, the shells are stitched with Caron Collection Watercolours, the coral with Caron Collection Waterlilies, and a Milanese variation border stitched with Caron Collection Wildflowers. (Note: because the threads used are all overdyed, and dye lots change, your stitched kit may look a little different than mine.) Learn how to make these highly textured stitched shells in a fun little project!
Kit includes an 8″ x 8″ square of 18 ct. mono deluxe Aquamarina with taped edges; full skeins of Caron Collection Watercolours 130 Eggshell, Caron Collection Wildflowers 031 Rose Quartz and Caron Collection Waterlilies 144 Pomegranate, size 22 and 24 or 26 tapestry needles, and a 6mm glass pearl.
Complete instructions are in the book, with diagrams, stitching tips, and finishing suggestions!
Important Note about the June Kit of the Month Beach Vacation: We discovered after the initial kits were sent out, that we had been sent Caron Collection Waterlilies 031 instead of Caron Collection Wildflowers 031. The colors are the same, but the texture is different. Waterlilies is a 12 strand SILK thread, Wildflowers is a non-divisible COTTON thread. Use 3 strands of Waterlilies 031 where the instructions indicate Wildflowers 031. We apologize for the mistake; we just didn’t catch it in time to correct it. The instructions have been updated to indicate Waterlilies 031.
Kit cost is $32.25 plus $7.75 for Priority Mail postage!
(Payment will be processed when order is ready to ship)
