Frequently asked questions

Can I still get involved if I do not live in Dundee?

 Yes. We aim to match groups of people together on a geographical basis. We do have stitchers out with Dundee already.


Can I join existing groups of stitchers.

Yes, this should be possible. Please let Lyndsey know where you live and she will suggest a group to join.


Do you provide needles, rings and hoops?

There are no needles and there's no hoop in the stitcher pack.

Re hoops - just use your own judgment re this. 

Use whatever hoops you find easiest to work with depending on the section you're working on.

Using a hoop helps to avoid creating

different tensions.


Are there plans for other times and venues for those that cannot attend on a Monday?

Hopefully, yes. We will let you know about other options as and when they become available.


Where is the Linen from?

Peter Greig


What is the name of the yarn supplier?

Appleton’s – it is the same as was used in The Great Tapestry of Scotland.


What is in a Stitch pack?

The pack includes the yarns, a piece of linen union to practice on, the instructions and a copy of the colour story.


I am an inexperienced stitcher, how can I become involved?

Please contact Lyndsey with all of your details and she will let you know how and where you can participate.
