2018 Crafter's Advent Calendar

    This is the 2018 Crafter's Advent Calendar!

    Make a charming and highly personal but also very mysterious festive decoration. Every day of the advent will reveal a new item to stitch onto the background to create a delightful scene that will be only be completed on December 24th. 

    As always, Corinne’s inspiration comes from traditional Scandinavian Folk embroidery and imagery. Her choice of colours and designs never fails to delight crafters and the quality of the materials guarantees that you will cherish this decoration for years to come.

      Each day’s envelope is numbered and contains a template, very clear instructions about which felt to use and where the piece(s) need to go on the background. There are also suggested stitch designs and ideas for further embellishment.
        You will be longing to know what the next day holds and to add to your picture but no peeking or cheating is allowed or snooping around on social media to see what the calendars made in 2018 look like!
          Each day’s stitching is designed to take no more than 30 to 45 minutes.

            The finished item can be framed, made into a wall hanging or turned into a cushion using another square of fabric for the back.
