The Spirit of Christmas

Free Project Instructions!

As the December holidays approach, we begin to reflect on the spiritual aspect of the season. New designs highlight the meanings and traditions of both Christmas and Chanukah.

Start with beautiful Christmas medleys of ornament-framed silhouettes and song lyrics. These ornately detailed designs will be stunning additions to any holiday decor item!

Joyous seasonal sentiments are stitched with the holy family, wise men, angels, and doves to add holiday beauty to shirt fronts, stockings, wall hangings, and more.

New Chanukah designs help you celebrate the festival of lights. Beautiful golden ovals surround the Star of David and the menorah, and snowy panel scenes are stitched with holiday wishes, making lovely designs for table linens, pillows, and festive wall hangings.
