Petite Alphabet cross stitch designed by Erica Michaels
Pattern from Rainbow Gallery's Website
Program Teacher: Ann Lorish
The 2006 Cross Stitchers Surprise Series from Rainbow Gallery (Permission to photocopy for free distribution is on each pattern) is planned as an ongoing project throughout the 2019 year.
There are 24 designs, each featuring a letter from the alphabet (x, y and z are combined) and the design has an object starting with that letter as well as a stitch starting from the same letter.
Each block is 53h x 53w and will create a block approximately 4 by 4 inches, on a 28-count fabric stitched over 2 threads.
Members are encouraged to do the blocks either separately or put them together to form a sampler. Rainbow Gallery fibers are listed and vary from stitch to stitch, and being creative with fibers is encouraged.
Patterns can be found on the Rainbow Gallery website:
and will also be available at the meetings. Please let Ann Lorish know if you need a copy.
