Spirit of the Season

Free Project Instructions!

As we approach the December holidays, we turn our hearts and minds towards the spirit-filled side of the season. New designs reflect the cherished stories and traditions of both Christmas and Chanukah.

Begin with a beautiful Christmas poinsettia, paired with the words "Peace on Earth, Goodwill to All."
This design is magnificent in its realistic detail, and will be a stunning addition to any holiday decor item.

Scenes from the Nativity story are tucked inside elegant frames, and accompanied by bright sprigs
of winter greenery. Classic Christmas phrases are stitched with angels, shepherds, stars, and mangers to add bright and spirited detail to wall hangings.

These designs are stunning on table linens, pillow and cushion covers, and festive wall hangings. Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah to you and your loved ones!

bright red blooms, stunning against a wintry backdrop, remind us of gifts and blessings that we
receive throughout the year. This design includes the words that the angels spoke to the
shepherds long ago on Christmas Eve.
