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!

Received my order of the Original Dropcloth Sampler w/in days. Printing of pattern is very clear, but the size of the fabric it was printed on left me disappointed..the top/bottom have enough of a border, but the sides are so very close to the pattern which limits you in finishing this sampler when you’re done…it needs to be mounted to a piece of fabric in order to hoop it while stitching. Although, I mentioned this to seller, and she stated they are going to change the size of fabric..this is good, but doesn’t help me! I would order from this store again because customer service is very good, nice interesting products!
