Pincushions Embroidery Sampler
From Dropcloth Samplers
An embroidery sampler, that when completed, you can sew into two pincushions to keep your needles organized.
For years, I have been suggesting that embroiderers pre-thread their needles. With a pincushion full of needles that are ready to go, you can start stitching at the drop of a hat. Now I've designed a pincushion to show off all your needles and help keep you inspired.
This sampler includes two panels for you to embroider by hand. The original uses back stitch and french knots, but you can choose your own stitches to suit your own taste. For best results, we recommend using 3 strands of embroidery floss or size 8 perle cotton in your needles. Choose your favorite colors.
This sampler makes a great gift to share with a friend. Will you stitch them together? Stitch one up and fill it with threaded needles for a friend that could really use a pick me up? Stitch them both up and keep them at the ready on your own end table?
Please share your in-progress and finished pincushions on Instagram with hashtag #dropclothsamplers
Complete directions for sewing your embroidered panels into functional pincushions are included.

+ What size hoops should I use
We like a size 6- but use whatever you hoop you have on hand.
* For best results, we recommend backing this sampler with a second piece of fabric (cotton or linen) before placing in the embroidery hoop.
* This item is not embroidered, but ready to be embroidered by YOU. The pictures show one way to fill in the design, but you can choose whatever colors/threads you like.
