Celebrate Canada's 150th with Jeannette Douglas!
Join us now in celebrating Canada’s 150th year with a pattern for each month of 2017. They will be released every second month as 1 chart with 2 patterns in it.
It may be done as a simple pillow to gift to a friend, a bowl of patriotism or a framed piece all done together.
It may be purchased in several ways, just the charts as they come out or in a festive Canadian themed box with all the threads, fabric, and all charts (but charts #1 &2 only are in the box at this point, you get to add the rest as they are released throughout the year) and needle ready to stitch.

We are also releasing Vimy Ridge a sampler commemorating the battle in France that has become the symbol of Canadian national achievement and sacrifice. Next year is 100 years on April 9 that this occurred and a stitcher- Lorraine Clark asked if I would do something to commemorate it. And thus we have the Vimy Ridge Sampler. It has in the usual JDD style, some words on why I used what I did in the rows and of course the stitch diagrams for the stitches. There is a silk embellishment pack available.
In August 2015, I was so pleased and excited to announce that I had signed up to become an instructor on Craftsy! Click the photo on the left to my course page, where you can view the trailer for the course, see the lesson plan, and sign up!
