“I love doing the tapestries. It’s so relaxing and a real escape. I’m currently working on the alphabet canvas and hoping I’ll finish it before Harriet knows the whole alphabet!”

Beside The Sea

£22.50£45.00

Beside The Sea needlepoint tapestry kit to stitch for your home or beach hut, or to celebrate the arrival of a new baby. Beside The Sea is great fun to stitch with a campervan and fishing boat, seagull (mind your chips!) and puffin, beach huts and children flying kites on the sand. Each kit contains colour printed canvas (12 holes per inch), Anchor tapestry wool, a reference chart including an additional chart for planning the centre panel, a needle and instructions.

Clear

Beside The Sea is a wonderful seaside needlepoint tapestry design, bursting with seaside imagery from a puffin and dolphin through to a lighthouse, fishing boat and a camper van with colourful beach huts, bunting and space for lettering and/or dates. You can stitch Beside The Sea to decorate your own seaside retreat, or as a gift perhaps for a couple who enjoy seaside adventures and days away.

If stitching Beside The Sea for a baby or child, it's worth noting that the design is in the same format as Farmyard Sampler, Noah and Dinosaurs. Measuring 10" high x 8", Beside The Sea is a medium-sized design which stitches up quickly.

Your completed Beside The Sea tapestry can be framed as a picture or used as the centre of a cushion.

Kit Contents

Each Beside The Sea tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:

  • Colour printed canvas (12hpi)
  • Reference chart
  • Additional alphabet and numbers chart, with instructions for planning the name panel. Note: We've included a ready planned 'Beside The Sea' chart (lettering as shown in our framed picture) in the kit so if you want to stitch those words onto your design it'll be super easy.
  • Generous supply of Anchor tapestry wool
  • John James tapestry needle
  • Stitch instructions for half cross and tent stitch

Choosing  a Tapestry Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential but will help to prevent your canvas from going out of shape. A tapestry frame also makes it easy to resume stitching the next day or after a break. We stock a tried and tested range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which are quick to assemble. As the canvas is attached by easy clips, you can easily switch projects if necessary. If going on holiday, just take off the sidebars and roll up your canvas - hey presto, ready to travel.

For Beside The Sea, Dinosaur, Farmyard and Noah Sampler tapestry kits, we recommend a CF189 tapestry frame, as a smaller CF129 will be a bit of a squeeze. Choose a larger frame with code ending in '9' if you are likely to stitch cushion sized designs in the future.
