The Toned-Down Circle Sampler is a kit provided by Sue Spargo that explores the application of embroidery to achieve textural depth and dimension. It is designed for a 90-circle study with a finished size of approximately 17-1/2" x 16."
I am offering this pattern booklet as a way to explore the use of my hand-dyed embroidery thread. I found the dimensional stitches Sue Spargo uses look great with 5/2 Tencel™ embroidery thread. For some examples of how I have used the patterns with my thread, visit my Instagram page.
Pattern includes full color stitch diagrams with page references to Creative Stitching guidebook. You will need Creative Stitching for embroidery stitch instructions. The finishing of the piece is up to you!
Circle Sampler book just seems to be photo copied from original booklet, not even stapled......
I love this pattern booklet, and while I value it for the effort I know this small company put into the 90 designs included, I definitely agree that it could have been printed a little nicer. What I sell is exactly as it comes to me from the company, even though it does look a bit like I may have copied it. My own much-loved copy of the pattern booklet is stitched together with embroidery thread. :)
