"&" - a modern counted cross stitch kit with hand painted fabric (28ct evenweave or 14ct aida).
Everyone loves an ampersand! The perfect symbol of togetherness, friendship, love, whatever you want! This is a great pattern to stitch up as a DIY wedding gift, a valentine's gift, a crafty gift for your BFF or just because you, like me, love ampersands!
This modern cross stitch kit is perfect for that person who loves modern design, typography, inspirational quotes and taking some time to chill. Just make a cuppa (or G&T!), sit down and relax whilst making a bright, modern, inspirational piece of artwork for your home.
The kits are designed, handmade and assembled by me in my studio in beautiful Somerset. I paint every piece of fabric by hand so variations will occur.
You have a choice of 28ct evenweave or 14ct aida fabric (perfect for beginners) in the following colours (see images for colour examples):
Animal - in 3 colourways.
Please note, this listing is NOT for a finished piece, the photos are just examples, the kit is for you to DIY or as a great DIY gift for a friend!
The design measures 105 stitches across and is 88 stitches high. When stitched on 28 count evenweave the design measures approximately 19 x 16cm (7.6 x 6.5"). It should use approximately four 8m skeins of floss if using 3 strands at a time, less if you use the traditional 2 strands.
The only other piece you need to complete the kit is an embroidery frame of your choice to keep the fabric taught while you stitch and perhaps a frame to hang it in pride of place when it's finished. Please note, the 11" square embroidery hoop in photos is NOT included.

I learned to cross stitch with this pattern. It's a big one and took me a long time but it made me fall in love with stitching. It now site proudly in my living room. I always choose the evenweave fabric, which is so soft and easy to work with. of all the evenweave I've bought since I started, I've found that Stitchsperation is the best quality.
