Slow stitching is a fabulous way to relax and relieve stress. It's a great way to express yourself and experiment with different kinds of fabrics, colors, patterns and threads. Whether you are an experienced sewist or beginning stitcher, the possibilities are endless for what you can create. There are no rules, therefore no instructions are needed. Starting with your canvas, which is a piece of (appx.) 11x14in / 28x36cm hand-dyed muslin, cut shapes from your seven pieces of varying colored, patterned and shaped fabric and start sewing! You receive one thread card of French Retors du Nord cotton embroidery floss, one thread card of Laine St. Pierre wool thread, and one spool of Fils au Chinois sewing thread.

Fabric shapes and sizes will vary from kit to kit, and thread colors can vary slightly and will coordinate with your fabrics.

Also! You receive a handmade needle book; a hand stamped kraft card with six sewing needles nested in swath of hand stitched wool.

I wrote a blog post about this project and how slow stitching is relaxing and stress-relieving for me:

There are lots of sewing tools you can add to your kit to make your stitching process easier, more efficient and more colorful!

Yes. Depending on what the policy is in your country, and the purchase price of your order, you may be required to pay customs duties and/or import taxes. Seller is not responsible for these fees or delays due to customs holds.
I've stopped including printed receipts with shipping. In addition to saving trees and minimizing expenses, I find that it also helps to minimize shipping costs, especially for very lightweight items. If you'd like me to include a printed receipt with your shipped order, I'm happy to do it. Just mention it in the notes when you check out!
Small items that can be shipping via regular post do not include tracking information. Some larger items that are shipped as parcels include track & trace, but are otherwise shipped without. If you would like tracking information for smaller, lightweight items, please just send me a convo and we can arrange it!
