In this book, children make a name sampler, following the rhymes to learn a variety of simple embroidery stitches: Straight running stitches done in three different directions (horizontal, vertical and diagonal) plus a parallel lines variation, the cross stitch, and satin stitch.
The squares on gingham fabric provide the grid on which they make their stitches.
The book comes as part of a kit which includes:
▪ 8" embroidery hoop
▪ gingham fabric
▪ flannel backing fabric to eliminate show-through
▪ crochet thread...enough for one name sampler
For children ages 5 and up
