Adoration of the Magi Stitchery

This Nativity project involved 2-1/2 to 3 hours per panel -- 8 panels total.  The entire project totals nearly 600,000 stitches.  Yes, you read that correctly!  600,000 stitches!  I stitched all panels together after they had all been completed, then I added fabric borders to all sides.  This large project may be either made into a wall hanging or may be framed, as in these photographs.

This item resembles a stained glass window as is seen in many churches.  The Adoration of the Magi was digitized by BF-C Creations.  The completed stitchery was framed by Uniques Custom Framing & Art Gallery of Brenham, Texas.  Considering the amount of work involved in this project, I felt it was appropriate to have Conservation Glass used to protect this stitchery--to eliminate any fading of the thread colors.  This is truly "church quality" when it is finished.

The cost for this type of work is $350 + tax, for an unframed piece. If you want me to have it framed before it is shipped or picked up, add approximately $100-$110 to the cost of the stitchery.
