Profile - John ClaytonCross stitch kits from the landscape and figure paintings of John Clayton come in interesting shapes: tall and thin, short and wide, and circular. All are very picturesque. The International Collection features several famous international panoramas and there are many attractive countryside views.
You will also enjoy the Elegance range of beautiful ladies from different eras, a change of style with the stitching feathered at the edges.
Flights of Fancy is a collection of birds in flight from the little hummingbird to the elegant swan.
Flower Panels series has many country garden flowers with some also as 'minis'
Sporting Scenes cover racing, golf, cycling and cricket.
John's Power and Grace series show many wild animals in the natural habitat.
Heritage Crafts are a reliable and quality studio. Their black and white charts are large and easy to read and they always provide two charts: one for the cross stitch pattern and the other showing the overlaid backstitch. They include a separate sheet of instructions for working with evenweave fabric or Aida depending on the kit.
All instructions are in English alone.
