Ackworth Friendship Book by With My Needle
The Ackworth Friendship Book is an accordion-style book of Quaker motifs from Ackworth School in northern England. There are 10 stitched pages. Each set of pages forms a pocket in which you can store special treasures.
The model was stitched on 36-count Maple Sugar from Lakeside Linens, Inc. using one ply of Milady's Teal from Crescent Colours. The design requires 6, 5-yard skeins if stitched with one ply of thread like the model. The model also uses 12-mm Arctic Ice Dark silk satin ribbon from Gloriana Threads (1 yard for the book and 2 yards for the bag).
Stitches used: cross stitch and backstitch. (On the model, all stitching was done over two linen threads.)
Stitching directions, charts, and detailed assembly instructions for both the book and a carrying bag are included.
