“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!”

Seaside Sampler

£35.00£70.00

Seaside needlepoint kit celebrating sandcastles and spades, boat trips, and tranquil harbours. Stitch Seaside Sampler for a new baby, or to add a nautical touch to your home or seaside retreat.

Top tip! As well as being a wonderful nautical birth cushion, Seaside Sampler is also perfect to stitch for a seaside home, perhaps with ‘Beside the Seaside’ in the central name panel, or the name of your seaside town or holiday hideaway.

Please note: We have very low stock of Seaside Sampler.

Seaside Sampler tapestry celebrates happy days on the beach. Seaside is great to stitch for a boy or a girl, and you can choose to stitch the name and birth details in a combination of blues or use other colours from the design. Perhaps go for a multi-coloured name, or use the pink left over from stitching the beach hut.

hoosing  a Tapestry Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential, but using one can help to prevent your work 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 are easy to assemble. The canvas is attached by sturdy clips, giving you the freedom to switch between projects if necessary.

For Seaside Sampler, we recommend either a CF219 or a CF2112 frame, or one of the CF24 frames if you may stitch larger designs in the future. A CF189 will be a bit of a squeeze!

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