Dropcloth Samplers is a line of hand-drawn embroidery samplers, printed and ready for you to jump in and start stitching right away. Each pattern is hand drawn by Rebecca Ringquist in her Portland, Oregon studio, and printed for you to embroider with your own color and thread choices. We like to describe them as coloring book pages for embroidery- there's no preparation necessary- they arrive ready to stitch. The first two samplers, Original and Sequel, were designed with the stitch names printed right on the cloth. You stitch as you learn, creating a lasting reference for all future embroidery projects.
An embroidery sampler, that when completed, you can sew into two pincushions to keep your needles organized.
For years, I have been suggesting that embroiderers pre-thread their needles. With a pincushion full of needles that are ready to go, you can start stitching at the drop of a hat. Now I've designed a pincushion to show off all your needles and help keep you inspired.
This sampler includes two panels for you to embroider by hand. I used back stitch and french knots, but you can choose your own stitches to suit your own taste. For best results, we recommend using 3 strands of embroidery floss or size 8 perle cotton in your needles. Choose your favorite colors.
