Part of the fun in stitching an Elizabeth Bradley kit is the ease of taking it anywhere. Because you can work the piece without a frame, you’re able to stitch while traveling for holiday via car, plane or train.
Our state-of-the-art stitch printed canvas paired with the quick & simple Victorian Cross Stitch will help pass the time and allow you to relax and enjoy. Read below for tips on taking your Elizabeth Bradley kit on-the-go!
1. Organize your wool before you stitch.
Pre-sorting your fibers allows you to start your project without any confusion on which colour wool goes where. Make sure to label each colour with the code number from the colour code card & chart. Our Acrylic Wool Organiser is a great tool when separating your wool, keeping the strands neat & tidy.
2. Bring your accessories.
Make sure you are prepared for any situation by bringing along all of your stitching accessories. Extra needles are always a good idea, and you can fix them to your canvas with an EB Magnet. Use your Logo Accessories Bag to keep up with any extras!
3. Use a vinyl bag to store your materials.
Our vinyl bags are a must for storing your stitching materials! The Logo Kit Bag is large enough to hold any 16” kit or smaller. Simply roll your canvas before putting it in the bag to ensure your stitching keeps clean. The Logo Accessories Bag can hold wool, accessories, or a combination of both. Use both bag sizes together to stay totally organized from start to finish.
I always have a mini kit in progress or ready to start for when I am on the go. They fit easily in a tote bag and I can work on them in tight spaces, like an airplane or commuter train seat. I used to have a very long commute and I was able to finish a mini kit every two weeks.
Always have your name and telephone number on edge of canvas in case of loss in transit. It’s your only hope of getting it back!
I use the original box. It has a handle, it closes well, and it travels well.
I take a picture with my cellphone of the design diagram that comes with the kit. That way I don’t have to bring it with me when I travel.
Thank you for the helpful tips on how to remain organizing while traveling. I take my current EB needlepoint project with me everywhere I go. You never know when you will need to wait for a
friend who is running late. The wait never seems long while I stitch away. While we are on the road, my husband makes frequent stops to browse junk shops for treasure, which he often finds. I pull out my EB needlepoint project and stitch while I wait for his return. Thank you again for the helpful tips!
