Shown above is the front of the packaged kit - small needlepoint kits are a perfect travel companion - easy to work en route to any destination. This makes commuting a very enjoyable time ( but not if you are driving !! ). Great projects to carry in a pocket and stitch while waiting for whatever you are destined to wait for.
Creating a set of four to eight needlepoint coasters should not be boring. The portability of these small needlepoint kits is one of its greatest charms. Slip one into a side pocket and - any wait - - becomes an opportunity to stitch the Memling Needlepoint Coaster Kits.
