Star Map - 11" Hoop Kit (Pre-order)
**Limited pre-order: ships in 4-5 weeks.**
Over the course of human history, the stars have guided us while spurring tales of animals, gods and mythological creatures. Astronomers, explorers, artists and storytellers have all played a part in defining the constellations that traverse the night sky. Based on historical planispheres, Star Map depicts the twelve zodiac signs as well as many of the other constellations that appear in the Northern Hemisphere. Screen printed layers of ink wash and illustration come together on fabric to create this stylized map that is a multi-level embroidery project!
This hoop kit is either a Level 1 or 2: for a quick and simple project, stitch only the golden stars over the illustrated figures, or for a more intensive project, use a range of easy stitches over the entire pattern (as shown). The kit comes with a full colour instruction guide and a beautiful and luxurious solid beech wood hoop with custom brass hardware that is wonderful for both stitching and final framing.
