It’s a busy day on the farm with the animals out in the sunshine, and the tractor ploughing the field. Farmyard Sampler is a lovely medium size tapestry to make for a child of any age. They will enjoy recognising cows, sheep, chickens, a collie dog and a cat, and the other animals, and the letters and numbers in the design.
If stitching for siblings or other relatives and considering stitching a set of heirloom tapestries, Farmyard is the same size as Dinosaur Sampler, Beside The Sea and Noah’s Ark Sampler. Perfect if you’d like to create a series of family tapestries – which are sure to become treasured heirlooms.
Each Farmyard Sampler 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
- 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 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 side bars and roll up your canvas – hey presto, ready to travel.
For 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.
