Threads include 2 skeins Impressions, 2 skeins 6 ply Planet Earth Silk, 2 cards Silk Lame braid 2 spools 5m 1/16th Kreinik ribbon and two spools trebizond silk. Silk Lame braid can be used along with the 6 ply silk for a small patterned stitch, similarly if desired the 1/16th ribbon may be used along with the impressions for the off white areas. Just about any small scale stitch can be used for the broad stripes; but keep it simple! Avoid big stitches for the background or it will overwhelm the lettering. Regardless of the language you speak, the word simply invokes a sense of sharing a spiritual connection and creates a sense and feeling of oneness and balance. Essentially, it’s a way that all humans can connect.
