Kit Packaging Update

For our tenth anniversary, you may have noticed the kits have been redesigned a bit. I’ve updated the look with some snazzy fonts and changed the packaging. The paper envelopes I’ve always used are not only hard to print, but they just don’t wear well, especially in shops and at craft fairs. Although I love them, I think I came up with a better solution after giving it a lot of thought.

So I’m using poly bags–but not just any poly bags: ours are made from plants, compostable and biodegradable; they contain a minimum of 60% post industrial recycled material. So, they’re not hate-able. Plus they’re resealable, so you can keep your kit together in one place as you work on it.

Everything else is the same: both kits still have a full-color pattern, instructions, thread and material. The Deluxe Kit also includes a wooden hoop and two needles. The material is 14-count silver-grade white Charles Craft, which I have professionally die-cut with zig-zag edges to prevent messy fraying. The thread is DMC six-strand cotton (so you can easily find the colors at any craft store) and the needles are size 24 tapestry.

Let me know what you think of the new look! I think it’s pretty cool and I hope you do, too!
