St. Nick’s Berry

St. Nick's Berry - linen and silk

St. Nick's Berry

Everyone’s favorite jolly elf in his work clothes - buffalo plaid shirt, green jeans and boots. He sports a large “believe” banner on the linen berry; on the silk berry he is surrounded by lots of holiday details and a reminder to be jolly and believe!

NOTE: Silk and linen berry chartpaks have been sold separately for some time, and copies are likely still available from numerous retailers. However, due to the lack of silk gauze available for the foreseeable future, St. Nick's Berry will be sold as a “partner” chartpak. This new format will include instructions and charts for both berries - but no silk gauze.

A “Stitch Dot” magnet from Zappy Dots is available.
