Festive Give Away * Marken Ornament Kit * $30 Saving on Festive Marken Sampler Offer

Rather than a book this time I thought it would be nice to offer you a little kit so you can make an ornament using whitework techniques from the Isle of Marken. This kit comes with all you need to make the circular ornament and also has the chart for the Christmas tree one. The kit was put together by Margreet Beemsterboer who has embroidered pieces for the Dutch royal family - so your ornament will be in very good company! Margreet also designed our Sampler of Motifs from Marken.
The designs are all based on antique vernaaider linten - bands worn in the hair and stitched with patterns that had been handed down from mother to daughter through the generations.You can work the designs as simple bands or borders, or make up the entire sampler - it is stunning!
The chart normally sells for $20 but so you can enjoy a pleasant stitchalong in the New Year with your friends, you can now purchase 4 copies for $50 (a saving of $30) to include airmail postage to wherever you are in the world. The offer ends on 31 December 2012. Just click on the sampler if you would like this offer.
