God Speed Welcome

This motto saying and style are unusual. The original piece, from which this design was adapted, was made in the UK in the 1880's. "God Speed" or the updated sentiment "God bless" are both included for the large motto version. A smaller bonus "single" motto design is also included in the leaflet.

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.
