It’s a sunny Christmas day on our new Animal Ark Christmas stocking. Santa has been very busy and delivered all the Christmas gifts, so he now has time to relax and visit his friends Noah and Mrs. Noah and all the animals.
Animal Ark is the eighth design in our larger Christmas stocking shape, and another option if you’ve already stitched most of the others for your family (humans and/or pets!).
Note re delivery date for Animal Ark kits Our first batch of Animal Ark canvases will be with us from our printer later this month. We don’t have an exact date but the wool’s already in stock so we’ll be able to send the new kits out as soon as the canvases arrive. We’ll update you as soon as they’re ready to go!
Animal Ark Christmas stocking tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:
- Colour printed canvas (10hpi)
- Reference chart
- Additional chart, with instructions for planning the name panel
- Generous supply of Anchor tapestry wool
- Reference chart
- Stitch instructions for half cross and tent stitch
Choosing a Tapestry Frame
While a tapestry frame is not essential, using one will help to prevent your work from going out of shape and makes it easy to resume stitching the next day or after a break. We stock a good range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which only take a few minutes to assemble. As the canvas is attached by easy clips, the frames allow you to switch between projects if necessary.
For Animal Ark Christmas stocking, we recommend either a CF219 or a CF2112 for ease of working, not an 18″ one. Choose one of the slightly wider 24″ frames if you think you will stitch cushion sized projects in the future.
Printed canvas area: 19″ x 14″ (48cm x 36cm) at tallest/widest points
