Thread Kit - Louise Henderson "A Christmas Sampler Miniature"

Price: $20.95

Louise Henderson (Cherished Stitches)'  A Christmas Sampler Miniature uses Treenway Silks' 100% silk threads throughout the piece.   Louise used our natural-dye silk threads, which gives a lovely, timeless feeling to the ornament.

The chart is published in Just CrossStitch "Christmas Ornaments 2015" on page 52.

We've put together a thread kit which includes the complete collection of Treenway Silks' silk threads needed to create this beautiful project.

      1 skein  Harmony (6-strand silk floss) hand-dyed #1004 Red Saffron
      1 skein  Harmony (6-strand silk floss) hand-dyed #1023 Fern Green
      1 skein  Harmony (6-strand silk floss) hand-dyed #1011 Tuscan Gold

30 yards total,  hand-dyed in Colorado using natural dyes extracts.

Note--the fabric Louise used is 60/54 uneven weave linen "Maritime White" from Lakeside Linens.  Bonnie Ingalls stitched the small version using 52cnt "Vintage Maritime".  Bonnie also stitched a version in 32 cnt (over 2) which makes a lovely 4"x4.5" finished ornament.

The 7mm Silk Ribbon in color #9514 Amber, used for the ruching, can be found here. We used 1 skein for the small ornament.

     Harmony thread is dyed with natural dye extracts derived from plants, roots, barks, berries and insects. 
     The natural dyes used are from responsible, sustainable sources that are organic and fair traded. 
     The dye recipes, formulated exclusively for Treenway Silks, use only safe, non-toxic, earth-friendly mordants and procedures that yield good to excellent wash and light-fastness.
