Dreaming Of Christmas

£35.00£70.00

Dreaming of Christmas is a timeless Christmas stocking tapestry kit. An enchanting design packed full of traditional festive imagery including a snowman, a Christmas pudding and a Christmas tree, Santa’s sleigh with reindeer and a sleepy village waiting for Santa’s visit.

 

Dreaming of Christmas is our very first Christmas stocking tapestry kit and is as popular now as ever as it's ever been! The design is a patchwork of festive imagery including Santa and Rudolph, a Christmas pudding, a snowman, a teddy bear wearing its Christmas sweater, a rocking horse and a decorated Christmas tree. In the sky above, Santa and his reindeer deliver gifts while below them a town is sleeping.

If you're stitching for more than one member of the family, note that Dreaming of Christmas is one of our boot-shaped Christmas stockings and is the same size as Noah's Christmas, Angel Skies, White ChristmasWoodland Owls, Puppies, Christmas Love Hearts, Santa and Evergreen.

Choosing  a Tapestry Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential but 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 range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which take only a few minutes to assemble. The canvas is attached by sturdy clips, allowing you to remove your canvas and switch between projects if necessary

Dreaming of Christmas stocking will fit on an 18" wide CF189 or CF1812 frame if you trim the canvas slightly at the edges. Choose a larger frame if you might stitch larger (wider) projects in the future.

See all our tapestry clip frames in our Frames and Accessories category.
