"Easy stitching that's oh, so, captivating."
Our Churchmouse Bargello Kits won so many converts last season that we created a new Colorway ("Indigo"), added a new Ebb & Flow chart you can download for free, and made it possible to purchase an extra canvas square.
Why is it such fun? Bargello's long, vertical stitches step up and down the canvas in repeating geometric patterns. Different color values create a captivating three-dimensional effect and designs can be bold, subtle or minimalist, depending on the shades of thread that you choose. The simple, repetitive rhythms make it perfect for busy stitchers.
Each kit includes two 7½" square 18-count deluxe mono taped canvases, four size-24 Bohin tapestry needles, a threader and a selection of gorgeous Silk & Ivory (50% silk 50% merino wool; 28.8 yds each) threads. It also comes with all the instructions you need to get started, as well as three inspiring charts to choose from.
For even more ideas and charts, we love The Bargello Book, available separately below. And to create your own colorways, visit our Silk & Ivory page to see 12 new Hue Packs.
Your finished squares are visually stunning and quite sturdy. The 6 x 6" square fits perfectly into the Churchmouse Valet Tray and the linen Window Tea Cozy. Or turn it into a pretty pocket for a canvas tote, a case for your spectacles, or a trivet for your teapot. So many options!
