Home Sweet Home

Price: $30.95

    Discover the hidden secrets of this exquisite embroidered workbox. Home Sweet Home by Carolyn Pearce is an international needlework phenomenon that has captured the imagination of stitchers the word over.

    The book itself weighs under 2 lbs but when a box is added to protect it the weight goes up. If you are ordering more than one book it won't be accurate as we can combine more than one book in a box.

    The supplies the author calls for are below. Several of them are not threads we carry or import into the US. But you can certainly change what you use to make it your own.

    Natural linen fabric for Walls and Base - we recommend Strahaven linen. You'll need a Half Yard (18x54)

    Permin 28 count linen Olive Green/Dusty Green  - Stitcher's Eighth. This fabric is no longer milled. We suggest 28 coun Thyme (hand-dyed) or Waterlily.
