Stitch and swoon with Stitch Poldark
By: Sew and So
It was the eight-part BBC drama that had us gripped to our sofas and sent many a heart racing with THAT topless scene, voted top TV moment of 2015. Poldark's popularity was cemented as it won the Radio Times audience award at the BAFTAs this year and is back for a second series, set to top the ratings this autumn, starting on 4th September.
And now fans of the series with a penchant for craft can immortalise their favourite Poldark moments in cross stitch, thanks to Sew and So, the UK's largest online needlecraft shop, who have partnered with Poldark's producers to create a book of cross stitch patterns featuring scenes straight from the show.
Whether you would like to recreate Ross riding on horseback to Nampara, Demelza sitting among lush wild flowers with her loyal dog Garrick, or Ross and Demelza looking windswept atop the Cornish cliffs, these cross stitch patterns are perfect for any Poldark fan to immerse themselves in the scenery and beauty of the show as they stitch their way through the collection.
Sew and So's Content Manager, Sarah Callard explained: "Our customers are avid cross stitchers, and we know that many of them absolutely love the show, so we decided to bring the two together. It was really hard to decide which six scenes to choose. We had to spend a long time looking at photos of Aiden Turner – a tough job, but somebody had to do it! We're so pleased with how they have turned out and are sure that cross stitchers will enjoy stitching them and admiring their handiwork on the wall forever more."
The collection is available either as a PDF eBook of the six patterns from SewandSo.co.uk, or as a printed booklet from Amazon.co.uk. One Amazon reviewer said: "This booklet of Poldark cross stitch designs more than met my expectations - the scenes are right from the TV series, the charts are well done, the whole layout of the booklet is exceptional. My biggest problem is deciding which picture to stitch first!"
