New to embroidery? I can help! I filmed four workshops with Creativebug, and each one has a Dropcloth Sampler that goes along with it. This bundle includes all four.*` Follow along on your own sampler while I demonstrate each of the stitches and become a master stitcher with four beautiful samplers to reference for future projects. Included in your bundle is a one month trial offer for Creativebug that gives you access to all four workshops (plus hundreds of other craft workshops).
Included in the bundle:
- The Original Dropcloth Sampler (our #1 best seller for 11 years running)
- The Sequel Sampler
- The Drawing Stitches Sampler
- The Schoolhouse Sampler
*You can also purchase the samplers individually.
The sampler arrives preprinted on cotton quilting fabric, ready to stitch and includes basic instructions. You provide your own threads, needles, and hoop.
PLEASE NOTE: This item is not embroidered, but ready to be embroidered by YOU. The pictures show one way to fill in the design, but you can choose whatever colors/threads you like.
What size is it?
This Sampler measures approximately 10' x 12" (The Original); 11" x 12" (The Original's Sequel); 10" x 13" (Drawing Stitches).
What thread should I use?
We use a combination of size 8 perle cotton and/or embroidery floss.
Where can I find more embroidery help?
I'm so glad you asked! Check out my online workshops on Creativebug.
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.
