I'm on a mission to teach people to sew, quilt, and embroider. I design patterns especially for beginners and I never release a pattern until I have videos teaching you every skill you'll need to complete the project.

Enough is as good as a feast. A good message any time of year - but especially for Thanksgiving. The stitching on this is easy - no tricky or advanced stitches - but it will take some time. It's the sort of thing that's a delight to pull out every night and stitch a little bit at a time in front of the fire.
You'll get a full-sized pattern - regular for tracing, and also reversed in case you want to use iron-on transfer tools. You'll also get a complete color and stitch guide with all the info you need to stitch it up exactly like the pattern cover - including links to videos teaching you every stitch I used in the piece.
The finished sampler is 7 inches square. If you work on it for an hour or two every night, expect to be finished in a week or two. But don't rush it! The joy in this kind of project is taking your time to notice the sound of the thread pulling through the fabric, the way the light reflects off the sheen of the thread, all the little details of the image coming to life. Give it as a gift - or hang it on the wall as a daily reminder.
