Cancers are known to be moody, loyal, likes to keep traditions alive, controlling, sensitive, and nurturing.
Even if you're not super into astrology, there's something undeniably fascinating about reading a horoscope. The Zodiac collection is a series of 12 satirical poems written for each astrological sign. I hope that stitching these canvases is a playful, self-reflective, and meditative exercise.
Inside Each Kit
Each kit is designed to help anyone stitch stunning, personalized heirlooms, and comes with:
- Design printed on Zweigart Interlock canvas, with the edges taped
- All the Appletons crewel-weight wool yarn you'll need to finish your project
- Two Bohin #22 tapestry needles
- A design plan and color-coded thread guide to make it simple to stitch
- How-to needlepoint guide + videos
The Zodiac Collection comes with links to lots of digital resources and how-to videos, including special stitch, fiber, and finishing suggestions for each of the 12 star signs.
About the Zodiac Collection
The poems were written in collaboration with an up-and-coming writer, Isabelle Conner (Virgo). Each word was chosen to highlight the typical traits of each sign. They often have double or triple meanings **IYKYK** that are designed to keep you thinking while stitching.
The color palettes was chosen to represent the key nature of each sign. You'll notice that all of the fire signs are alit with a touch of red, while the earth signs are more grounded in greens and browns. I fully expect all the Aquariuses out there to make off-beat color swaps :)
Each lettering style was hand-drawn to reflect the zodiac characteristics. The Pisces lettering is floaty, while the Capricorn text is all-business. The Libra lettering is over-the-top romantic, while Scorpio looks like it’s about to cast a spell. You get the picture.
