You are welcome to download Kitty’s notes here. Thank you, Kitty, for your kindness.
We have packed a ribbon kit for Kitty’s version of Purple Rain and it is now available at a special price.
The Ribbon pack contains:
Di van Niekerk’s silk and organza ribbons
2mm silk ribbon x 15 packets
4mm silk ribbon x 17 packets
7mm silk ribbon x 17 packets
15mm organza ribbon x 2 packets
Total of 51 packets
Note: The threads and fibres are not in the pack. The pack contains only the hard-to-find silk and organza ribbons.
You can use your own stock of threads following the picture as a guide for colour or purchase similar colours from your nearest store. The DMC six-strand or any similar threads will be just fine.
If you don’t have an embroidery panel to work on yet, it is (in the same size as the one that Kitty made) available here.
