The Corner Design is a beginner to advanced Mountmellick technique.

Working the embroidery: A variety of different embroidery stitches (approximately 15) are worked with traditional Mountmellick threads (two thicknesss' of white cotton embroidery threads) on a heavy white satin jean fabric. The stitches worked are bold giving the picture a 3-dimensional effect.

The kit has detailed instructions and lots of diagrams to guide your through the embroidery. The instructions are written with the beginner in mind and intended to guide embroiderers of any level through the embroidery from beginning to end. The fabric comes with the design hand drawn on so there are no worries about transferring the design.

I am offering free correspondence and free on going critique for this kit, for more details go to - Free on going critique.

I recommend stretcher bar frames to work Mountmellick in as you can get excellent tension on all four sides of the embroidery resulting in smoother stitches. For information about the frames visit my Embroidery Frames webpage. (Parcel Mail costs apply to stretcher bar frames).
