Instant collection of 5 microbe cross stitches, completed in 3" natural wood embroidery hoops

Choose your 5 by noting which ones you'd like in the purchase order notes at checkout. Use the drop-down list to select the first one and to look through the list to decide on your other 4.

(Note: the drop-down list sometimes includes the same microbe twice, listed under its common name and its scientific name.)

Please note: These may take A MONTH for me to stitch! They are made to order.

---The Deets---

This listing is for a set of FIVE microbes of your choice from all the microbes available in my shop. Check out the Microbes and Germs section (linked below in The Links part of this listing) and the list of available microbes in the drop-down list in this listing to decide which ones you want!

Then write your choices in the purchase order notes at checkout.

If you'd prefer a "grab bag" of microbes, let me know! Put "surprise me" or "grab bag" or some similar phrase in the purchase order note when you place your order, and I'll happily oblige. You're welcome to specify a general category: STDs, common microbes, malaria, etc.

You MUST indicate which 5 microbes you want, or that you'd like me to surprise you, or I'll be forced to cancel your order per my shop policies (minus listing fees, etc.)

*FRAME: These are framed in 3" round natural wood embroidery hoops, backed by loose felt to protect the needlework.

*SHIP: This stitch set will be made to order and sent via USPS first class (with delivery confirmation) or international first class mail within about THREE WEEKS of your order, usually sooner, unless I convo you otherwise or increased lead time is mentioned in my shop announcement (main shop, below the banner) and/or shop policies.

If you need these shipped sooner, contact me and let me know when you'd need them by. Chances are good I'll be able to get them to you in time unless you're reading this in December.

*GIFT WRAP: Let me know if you are giving the these germs as a gift (lol), and I'll wrap 'em up in plain paper and include a small note card for your "to" and "from" -- or tell me if you'd like me to send it directly to the recipient and what message you'd like to include, and I'll write it out for you before I pop it in the mail.

Microbes are not my intellectual property, obviously, but the cross stitch designs are copyright Alicia Watkins 2012-14. Please do not copy or distribute without permission, and please do not pin images without permission. (Convo me!)

If you're interested in the patterns for this or other germs, convo me, and I'll put them at the top of the queue for digitizing!

I am no kind of medical expert, and anything I know about the microbes in this series of stitches or that I appear to know, I learned from the internet. : ) NO PART of my listings or any other ramblings should be construed as ANY KIND of medical advice, because it's not. My only relevant expertise is in cross stitching!
