We all like to be beside the seaside, and our Seaside Sampler tapestry captures those happy times 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 multicoloured name, or use the pink left over from stitching the beach hut.
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.
Each Seaside Sampler tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:
- Colour printed canvas (10hpi)
- Reference chart with additional alphabet and numbers chart (with instructions for planning)
- 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 does 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 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 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!
