This is a charted piece by Gail Sirna (of Michigan) which is probably the most popular in the shop! You’ll receive a piece of white Congress cloth that has the state of Michigan drawn on it (with the U.P. moved over to fit) WITH the chart. The chart is 30 pages in length and a full color picture of the finished piece is on the front.
Each county is a different stitch. You’ll use Kreinik braid #8, Accentuate, Anchor and DMC flosses and two overdyed floss. You’ll do the background in white or a color/thread of your choice. Background color NOT included in the kit – but of course you can request it! Just put a note on your order form or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This has been extremely popular with some people putting a small heart or button where they live in Michigan. This is also a nice piece to do for something whose heart belongs to Michigan. NOTE: The word Michigan is written alongside the right side of the state but is not shown stitched in the picture.
The Congress cloth measures 8 x 10″ and is suited for framing in a ready-made frame.
Thread kit available!
