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!
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.
Autumn in the DalesSwaledale turns gold and bronze as the year begins to draw to a close. This box has a brown base and delicate apricot lining.
