Scissors Sheath Band Sampler Side

After I picked out my colors, I decided for the cost of DMC floss, I’d get 2 of the 4 colors I was missing! The green is just as good. It stitched up quickly. But, it took me longer than I could do in one 2-hour meeting. They should be able to finish both sides in a month. Then, at the 2nd meeting, we can glue backing onto each half & begin stitching the sides together.

Again, the stitches from the top band down are: Four-sided, Algerian-Eyelet, Diagonal Satin, Queen, Montenegrin, Cross for letters, Marking, Long & Short, Four-sided, & Surface Satin.

Next, you’ll see the back as diagrammed in the Sampler & Antique Needlework magazine (Summer 2009) for Plimoth Scissors Sheath. It is a pretty pattern too & I didn’t want the back & the front the same.

Come join us at 7:15 pm on the 2nd Mon of each month just 30 minutes from Center City Philadelphia & 10 minutes from King of Prussia. Or contact us at: for more information.
