New Design Release: “Stars and Stripes Forever”

Stars and Stripes Catalogue Photo

In honor of President George Washington’s birthday, we have released Stars and Stripes Forever. This is contemporary, to-scale U.S. flag intended for year-round display in the home or office.

50 stars and 13 stripes are stitched with vibrant colors from The Gentle Art.  We chose a warm and toasty linen from Wichelt (Desert Sand).  I SO enjoyed stitching on this fabric!

Stars and Stripes Forever is a distinctive and convenient way to show the flag indoors. It’s quite a dense design (it took me a few months to finish!), but the geometric and repeated patterns are easy to stitch.

The flag is made with simple cross stitches — no specialty stitches required!

If you start this design in March, you’ll be finished by July 4th!

Stitch Count: 171W x 106H
Design Size: Approx. 12″W x 7-1/4″H
Fabric: 28-ct Desert Sand* from Wichelt Imports
Threads:  The Gentle Art (with DMC conversions)
Frame: Where Victoria’s Angels Stitch (Clifton, N.J.)

We’ve shipped initial orders to our distributors.  If you’d like to purchase our charts, please ask your needlework shop to order them for you!   As always, feel free to contact me with questions.

Thank you and Happy Birthday to our country’s first President!  ~Liz

*Updated on 6/28/13: Some charts may call for 28-ct “Sand”; the full name of the fabric is “Desert Sand” from Wichelt; we’ve reflected the update in later chart printings.  We apologize for the discrepancy!
