This design is Michael's interpretation of a Frank Lloyd Wright-style stained glass window. The design is worked on 18-mono Eggshell canvas. The finished design size is approximately 8 by 11 inches. The working canvas is 12 by 15 inches.
Frankie is stitched with #12 pearl cotton and cotton floss from the Spanish company Finca Prescencia, Rainbow Gallery’s Silk Lamé Braid, Kreinik ribbon and braid, and Sundance beads. The kit includes: the canvas; full skeins/spools of all threads, and complete instructions with multiple photos. We strongly recommend Evertite™ adjustable stretcher bars for this class. Students are to provide a variety of tapestry and beading needles (#22-#28); a laying tool; a frame weight, stand or other means to allow 2-handed stitching; and, all other usual stitching supplies. Optional: lighting and magnification.
Stitches used in the design include: Backstitch, a Plaited couching pattern, Smyrna, Wheat Sheaf, Walneto, various Jessicas, Amadeus, Waffles, Double Fan, Double Fan Doubled, Eight Point Star, Chilly Hollow, and Patterned Couching. The use of #12 pearl cotton gives the overall design a light, open look.
There are four colorway options: Monet (the original), Mardi Gras, Jewel, and Pastel. All of the colorways have the black, ecru and metallic threads in common.
