Today with a restocking of regular supplies like Qsnaps and stretcher bars and needles we brought in a couple of unique pillow kits from Collection D'Art. Pre-printed on 5 mesh canvas which is a great size for those who are struggling with aging eyes. Finished design measures 15 3/4" x 15 3/4" and they come with the wool and you just cross stitch the design following the colours printed on the canvas. Once done, you can combine it with our stock number 21155 which is a Pillow back finishing kit. A little sewing, sewing notions and stuffing are required. We brought just two designs in to see how they would go but there are a number of other designs as well and we are happy to special order them. We do have catalogs in store of the designs available, unfortunately these are not viewable on a distributor site.
And as an aid to finish these off this great finishing kit so when you add a little sewing, some sewing notions and stuffing you can finish these pillows quite easily.
We haven't listed these under a new arrival date so just click the pictures to go to the individual item.
