Welcome motto

This motto was worked on white tea dyed paper with rich jewel tone colors of thread. Many mottoes welcomed guests and family in to a home in the 1870's - 1880's.

All of our mottoes are charted for stitching on perforated paper with traditional textured stitches, just as the Victorians stitched them, and for completing the design using Cross stitch only which can be worked on fabric and also paper.

We sell the threads for all of our motto designs even if they are not listed on this website. If you cannot find the threads locally please contact Dutch Treat directly.
