+ Where can I find more embroidery help?

+ Where can I see other examples of the finished sampler?
Instagram! Check out the hashtag #dropclothsamplers for tons of beautiful examples of all our designs, stitched by people like you. I hope you'll add yours to
the mix!

+ How should I back my sampler?
For best results, I recommend backing this fabric with a second piece of fabric (cotton or linen) before placing your fabric in the hoop. You'll get the flattest,
most even stitches this way. Check out my how to for this step on creativebug or IGTV (@dropcloth)

+ What size hoops should I use? I like a size 6- but use whatever you hoop you have on hand.

+ Can I get this as a kit with everything I'll need? Of course! Here's a link:

This was my first drop cloth sampler. It was fun! I learned a few new stitches and was able to keep myself occupied during the hot parts of the summer days. I chose to stitch it to a flour type cloth because I didn’t think the original cloth was very substantial. I did like the whimsical pattern though!

Love this printed sampler! It will be so fun doing the different stitches and choosing colors! Saving it to stitch during the Olympics!

I haven’t started working on this yet but I know I will love it. I always enjoyed making cross stitch samplers. I have wanted to learn embroidery stitches for a while now, but needed a little “help”. I plan to check out the online classes that go along with this sampler.

This is my FIRST sampler, and I am so excited to do one stitch every day on Creative Bug with Rebecca to complete it! I love to start new hobbies, and this year, this is the one I'm working on: embroidery!
