The half cross tent stitch is worked in straight rows or columns. But the way it is stitched, the stitch goes over only one fabric thread on the back. This stitch uses the least amount of thread, but the final project is not as sturdy. Start at the top left and work from left to right.
Thank you for being a member of our inaugural Broderi Box Collection! We appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback so we can improve our services for you and new members. This survey should take no longer than 10 minutes of your time and includes multiple comment areas where you can leave further ideas and suggestions about your year in stitching with us. :)
Chrissy (our amazing bookkeeper) is part of the Heirloom Butterfly Sampler club and sharing her progress!
Her biggest tip so far is to:
Photo copy the pages that have the outline stitch and highlight the stitches off as you do them.
Each box will be packed with <3 and filled with special threads and a mystery tool, accessory, or a lil’ something extra. Additionally, you’ll also receive a tweet-sized cheat sheet outlining the contents, and a link to a special blog post with more information and that month’s complimentary pattern, stitch ideas, and how-to’s.
The 2017 Broderi Box theme is the Greek Zodiac, so each month will have a color-family built around that month’s astrological sign. Don’t like a particular theme? No problem. Single-serving purchases will be at-will and open the first week of the month before the next month’s box. So, if you just have to get in on March (and Pisces), you’ll be able to purchase the March box the first week of February (and don’t worry, we’ll send out reminders when membership opens).
Ready to get in on this?! We’ll keep you stitching in specialty techniques all year, with fun fibers, great tools and accessories, and the opportunity to share your creations with a new stitch community of Broderi besties!
