Celebrations can be personalized for a variety of occasions including a wedding, anniversary or birthday. A celebration of stitches come together to create the lovely design including Hardanger embroidery, cross stitch, bargello, and specialty stitches. The model was stitched on 35-count Linen, 16" x 9". Suggested substitute is 36-count white Edinburgh linen (3217-100). The threads used were Weeks Dye Works floss #4115, 1198, 4141, 1289; Rainbow Gallery Petite Treasure Braid PB27, PB54; DMC floss Ecru; DMC #12 Pearl Cotton - Ecru. You will also need Mill Hill beads #42027 and 40553.
"I just wanted you to know that I received my first one (Hardanger Card Club) about two weeks ago. I stitched it last week and am thrilled with the results. We have a son shipping off to Afghanistan in Feb. so this will maybe help me to concentrate on something other than where he is... you know how we can get lost in our stitches. Thanks so much for offering it and glad to hear that so many have joined the challenge! - Dede
