The Big Day is a small tapestry that will make a big impact if stitched to celebrate a special occasion, such as a house warming, wedding, anniversary or any other romantic occasion. There will be plenty of spare wool to use if you intend to extend the design and personalise the border. Settle down and catch up with your favourite box set on TV and you might even stitch this little beauty in a weekend!
The finished needlepoint can be framed as a picture, or made into the centre panel of a larger cushion – perhaps even a ring pillow.
As a rough age guide, The Big Day is suitable for children age 7+.
Each Big Day tapestry kit comes in a red rope-handled bag with colour illustration and includes:
- Colour printed canvas (10hpi)
- Eight whole skeins of Anchor tapestry wool
- Reference chart with additional alphabet chart, and instructions
- John James tapestry needle
- Needle threader
- Clear instructions for half cross stitch
Choosing a Tapestry Frame
A tapestry frame is not essential, but is particularly useful for beginners as it leaves both hands free for stitching.
For The Big Day, we recommend a CF129 frame but choose one of the larger frames with code ending in ‘9’ if you think you will stitch larger projects in the future.
Printed canvas area: 4″ x 4″ (10cm x 10cm), canvas size 10″ x 10″ (25cm x 25cm)
