Such a fun piece with it’s red house, sheep, and colorful birds! There’s peacocks and even a turkey! Stitched with Weeks 36 ct Parchment linen and NPI silks, it’s sure to be a stunner.
Catherine Davies will be released at the Online Needlework Show on Saturday! The show runs October 1 – 3. Catherine’s simple unpretentious appearance is sure to charm!
Spirit of Cross Stitch class piece Hannah Atkinson is now at the framer! This fun to stitch red house sampler is part of my architecture in samplers lecture. My vision for the lecture/class is after the lecture we relax for a bit listening to some classical music while stitching this sampler. This should be a fun weekend for all!
Victorian Rose Needlearts has two new offerings for The Needlework Show opening August 1st. Along with current charts, Emma Chester and Frances Eliza Kimber will be ready for release! Just have your favorite needlework shop order them from the show…
Registration is now open to the revived Spirit of Cross Stitch Festival!

If you don’t remember, you are certainly in for a treat. Come check it out at https://www.facebook.com/groups/SpiritofCrossStitchFriends/
Victorian Rose Needlearts is teaching two classes on Friday, October 14th. We would love to see you there!
Victorian Rose Needlearts will be teaching the Ann Topham sampler in Richmond in October. In executing this lovely Adam & Eve sampler, the student will learn to do freehand embroidery, chain stitch, four-sided, and over one and over two cross stitch. There will also be a lecture on architecture in 18th and 19th century samplers with a slide show and the opportunity to stitch a small red house sampler.
