The Maple Leaf is worked in needle painting also known as thread painting and long and short stitch. This is the most realistic form of surface embroidery which is worked in staggered straight stitches in a single strand of embroidery thread on a closely woven fabric, blending rows of colour to create a very realistic embroidery. The sheen of the threads adds to the soft effect of the leaf.

The Maple Leaf is a beginners design, please visit the Needle Painting Information page for more information on needle painting and rating of the designs from easy to hard.

The fabric comes with the design printed on so you do not have to be concerned about transferring the design yourself and the threads come on a numbered thread template so you know exactly which colour to use on the embroidery. There are 7 DMC cotton thread colours used in the embroidery.

There is a choice of a bright green or olive green for the veins of the maple leaf. The maple leaf with the olive veins in the picture gallery is worked by Beryl Marshall.

In the kit I provide a detailed instruction booklet with 10 pages of step-by-step diagrams and instructions.

Needle painting can be challenging so I suggest learning the technique from one of my kits rather than from a book as you get much more instructions in my kit rather than a book which usually only has a few pages of instructions for one design.

I am offering free on-going critique with this kit…..you can email me at any time if you have questions or would like me to critique your embroidery.

Fine White Work Pear and Magnolia Kit

$55.00 CAD

The beautiful fine embroidery of the Pear and Magnolia and insects is created by stitching three layers of fabric (two layers of shadow linen with a layer of net sandwiched in-between) are sewn together with embroidery stitches. When all the embroidery has been worked layers of linen are cut away from the back or the front of the work.

This will leave some areas with two layers of fabric, some with one layer of fabric and some with just net creating a dimensional look to the embroidery. On the single layer of fabric pulled-work stitches are worked, in the net areas net stitches are worked.
