Gingerbread Needlework Shop
Part 7 of the Gingerbread Village

  Gingerbread Needlework Shop

Gingerbread linenPTP HeraldThe latest in Thea's Gingerbread Village series is the Needlework Shop. And who can't love the idea of their own Needlework Shop! It's stitched on 28 count Picture This Plus Gingerbread and we're pairing it with PTP Herald, which is a mottled teal color. The fabric Thea stitched the roof on is no longer made and there are not a lot of teal fabrics on the market. If you want something very bright you could use Wichelt Riviera Aqua but we think the PTP Herald is the best choice. It has mottling to make the roof interesting and we find when creating 3-D pieces it works best to use linens from the same company.

TVS Needlework Shop Emb PackYou can order the chart, accessory pack, white silk, Picture This Plus Gingerbread and Herald linen or any of what you need.

If you want all of the threads and buttons/charms, order the Accessory Pack, which has all but the white silk and the DMC #8 Blanc. For the white threads we suggest using NPI 991bb as we like it more than the Mori.
