Three Dimensional Cross Stitch Design
 
 

The Keepsake Collection

The range is divided into large, medium and small designs reflecting mainly their finished size, to make it a bit easier to choose the kind of project you would like. Smaller keepsakes tend to be quicker to stitch, but can be a bit more fiddly to assemble. Being small, they look adorable when done, but obviously hold less by way of trinkets or pictures. Larger keepsakes will usually have more stitching to do but can be easier to put together and will hold more and bigger things when done. In between are the happy mediums!

Small Keepsake Boxes and Frames

The small trinket boxes come in oblong and square shapes. Two frames 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. 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.

Medium Keepsake Kits

These pieces are designed to be both practical and useful. The trinket boxes vary between oblong, square and octagonal shapes. A picture frame and trinket trays 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. 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.

Swaledale Collection

The Swaledale Collection is 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. The 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. These kits contain stitching and lining fabrics, wadding, plastic canvas (ultra stiff for added strength), DMC threads, needle, charts and full instructions.

Large Keepsake Boxes

The large trinket boxes come in octagonal, oblong and square shapes. 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. These kits contain stitching and lining fabrics, wadding, plastic canvas (ultra stiff for added strength), DMC threads, needle, charts and full instructions.

Special Starter Kit

Nutmeg Company kits are generally designed to challenge stitchers and help them develop their skills, but the Black Eyed Susan Box has more extensive instructions, both for stitching and assembly, to help beginners and anyone who feels unsure about taking the plunge! Black Eyed Susan flowers ramble across the top and sides, but the design is not complicated and is worked on 14-count aida - easy to see and work with. Step-by-step photographs and text talk you through each stage of assembly.
