The Keepsake CollectionThese pieces are designed to be both practical and useful. The larger trinket boxes vary between oblong, square, octagonal and circular shapes, and there are three smaller square designs and a fan-shaped one as well. Two vases and a trinket tray complete the range. The trinket boxes are lined with good quality 28-count evenweave fabric, carefully chosen to match the colours of the cross stitched design, and the lids are slightly padded, while the vases are lined with felt rather than evenweave. These kits contain stitching and lining fabrics, wadding, plastic canvas (ultra stiff for the square and rectangular designs for added strength), DMC threads, needle, charts and full instructions.
Photo FramesLast year Meg designed some cute cross stitch photo-frames for new baby boys and girls. But customers have told us that by the time they find out whether the baby is a boy or girl, there isn't usually enough time to stitch these frames. The interesting thing is that the finished designs aren't just for new babies. The designs don't include the word "new", they just has space for the baby's name - so these projects would also be brilliant for 1st or 2nd birthday pictures. So we have decided to rename the kits without the word new. But in the meantime we are selling the existing stock with the old packaging at a very special price.
The Swaledale CollectionThese boxes, measuring 7 cms square and 4.25 cms high, are inspired by Swaledale, the dale in North Yorkshire where the Nutmeg Company is now located. Each box represents one of the four seasons and has a tiny picture on the lid depicting a Dales village. Another scene is worked on the inside of the lid and wording is stitched around the inside of the lid rim - commenting on the season represented by the box. An alphabet is included in the instructions so you can work a personal message and date if you wish. Kits contain 16-count aida, evenweave for lining, wadding, stranded cotton, ultra stiff plastic canvas to form the box, needle, chart and full instructions.
