Terrific Towels

Saturday, August 28, 2010

My pals at DMC are always sending me something exciting to try, and this week a box of CharlesCraft towels arrived at my front door (thanks, Allison!).

As soon as I opened the box I couldn’t help but think “SCORE!!!!!”

Inside were samples of every size and shape of Charlescraft (now owned by DMC) towels know to stitch-dom!

In my hot little hands were samples of Aberdeen hand towels, Maxton guest towels, Estate towels, Banded Huck towels, Showcase Huck towels (see below), Basketweave Terry, Cottage Check and hemmed KitchenMates towels – Enough to keep Emma busy for a long, long time…

What makes these towels even cooler, is that they come with free designs to stitch, perfectly sized for the towels. Awesome!

Check out the free designs available for the Showcase Huck Towels!  The grapes design, shown here, is perfect for Autumn stitching – and there’s an awesome Poinsettia design as well as gorgeous citrus, strawberries and peach themes.

These vertical, rectangular designs are 54 stitches wide by 74 stitches high and can also be worked on Charlescraft’s Kitchenmates Potholders.

Are you thinking what I’m thinking?   Christmas gifts!

Happy Stitching!

      Hi Joanna – those are the Aberdeen towels. I’ve placed a link on all the photos to make them easier to locate. ~Emma

    I love love LOVE the KitchenMates towels. How genius to just move the stitching band up a bit so the towel is more useful! These are now the only style of towel I buy for embroidery gifts.

    Any chance CharlesCraft will expand on the 12 days of Christmas designs that we saw in the Feb 2010 of Cross Stitcher?? They only had the first 3 in the magazine.. I would like to see more of those fantastic designs please

      Good Question, Maggie! I will ask around and see what I can find out on that!
