This new mat I actually made for myself, but I guess I will not see it for awhile...the girls at the shop loved it too much, so I will have to make another for myself. This is an everyday mat. Simple shapes and easy to stitch. Uses Valdani #12 threads-O575,78,O531,P9 and 6 stranded-Weeks Caper or Bark or Valdani P2 will work for stems, You also will need black to stitch around the outer edge, but we do not include it in the kit, as most people have black. Table mat measures 12x18.
