Tips to Follow Before You Begin Stitching

Here are four recommended Elizabeth Bradley stitching tips & hints you can follow before you begin to stitch your design.  We hope these tips make stitching a bit easier for you!  


Stitching Tip #1

Separate all wool colours in good lighting before you begin stitching as some colours can be very close in shade.  Keep the colours well separated throughout the stitching process to avoid similar shades being mixed up.  Our kit organizer bag is a great way to organize and store your strands.


Stitching Tip #2

Each kit includes Elizabeth Bradley wool that is pre-cut and ready to use.  We recommend using the full strand of wool, versus cutting it in half, for the best experience. 


Stitching Tip #3

Tie a small amount of each wool colour to the corresponding square on the key at the right hand side of the canvas for a quick, easy reference.  


 Stitching Tip #4

The quality of your piece can be affected by the tension of your stitches.  Tightly pulling the wool can cause the canvas to pucker.  Try to keep the tension of each stitch the same throughout the piece for a nice, even final project!

I find it v hard to decide what to buy next. I have enjoyed the three Hostas, the Hellebore w a red background on my red library chair, the big blue pansy, the crimson Rhododendron and still more flowers. I really do enjoy seeing them come to life as cushions. The blue Hydrangea is on an antique stool in my bedroom. I love the little sampler posies on the long stool in this email, but I will have to transpose it onto long canvas I think
Thank you for these beautiful kits, I really relax stitching them. Sandi Gadd
