Embroidery Kit: Nevertheless, She Persisted (basic kit)


Embroidery kit: Nevertheless, she persisted. This pattern celebrates the strength of determined women, throughout the ages and around the world. From Laura Ingalls Wilder to Marie Curie, Jane Austen to Jane Goodall; from the young mamas to the great grandmothers, to the very littlest girl. Women and girls face challenges large and small every day - and stand up to them, with pluck and determination, hard work and grace - and always with persistence. And that is worth celebrating.

This pattern looks complex, but in reality the stitches used are very simple! The lettering is optional - stitch over it if you like, or leave it in ink. And I'll walk you through a few options for working the flowers, so you can choose a version you're comfortable with. Either way, an adventurous beginner will tackle it just fine, and a more experienced stitcher will enjoy customizing the details!

Note: this listing is for ONE embroidery kit. Choose the colour you would like from the menu before adding to your cart!

This is a BASIC kit, which includes:

*A natural linen panel, with the image hand-printed directly onto the fabric (no transfers required!)
*A palette of beautiful pearl cotton embroidery thread in the required colour(s)
*An easy-to-thread needle
*Instructions on stitching the image

This kit will be carefully packaged in a clear sleeve and wrapped in tissue and twine.

Please note, the BASIC kits do NOT include
- an embroidery hoop
- instructions on how to do the individual embroidery stitches
- a STITCH practice sampler
-a box

You will need your own embroidery hoop and to be familiar with the stitches. I recommend working with a 6" embroidery hoop, which is nice to hold and fits the finished image perfectly.

This kit is suitable for an adventurous beginner, an experienced stitcher, and everyone in between!

Fabric measures approximately 10.5" x 9"; image measures 4 x 6".

This is such a wonderful design and is of such high quality, I can't wait to get started. The idea of the choice between the cheaper basic kits and the full kits is so great because it means you don't have to pay for stuff you don't need. I also love the quality of the thread provided

Got as a gift for my sister, who adores it! Seller was very sweet and added a message for me. Mailed really quickly.

This is such a happy kit! I truly can't wait to stitch it. The instructions are fun and fresh. Plus Sarah has amazing service - the one I ordered took the extremely scenic route to get to me but she posted a replacement which got here first. I look forward to my next kit already!
