DESIGN OF THE MONTH – 20% off Retail

Siena Pattern

This Jacobean pattern is a lot of fun to stitch. Connecting all leaves, flowers, birds is a scroll pattern and once that is in place, very little additional counting is required. The scroll pattern chart is included in the kit as a Stitching Aid. Siena is available in 7 different color choices and there are scores of other patterns in the cross-point kit collection that make for beautiful companion pillows to Siena. The regular price of pattern Siena is $145.00; with the 20% off only $116.00 plus shipping.

As you know from previous offers, when you order online from the website, PayPal will bill the regular price and we issue the 20% Discount back to your credit card via PayPal when we process the order at our studio. So far, in over 10 years of doing it this way we have had zero problems or complaints.

    This is such a beautiful design! It looks like it would be difficult to stitch, is it?

    No, not difficult because the charts include one for all the outlines and scrolls separately from all other colors. Once the outline and scrolls are stitched, no more counting, just filling in the other colors and background. Please try it, Linda. You will love it!
