Our Folk Embroidery Kits are perfect for beginner and skilled stitchers alike. This old fashioned craft makes a great project for Winter time when you're stuck indoors or during the Spring or Summer while you enjoy an afternoon on the porch. The Pascha (Easter) basket cover is a tradition in which families bring a basket of celebratory foods to be blessed and shared. The intricate central stylized cross is outlined with a lovely border featuring checkerboard detailing and two cross motifs and is worked in the traditional bright red. Pascha basket covers are treasured heirlooms in many families and this beautiful design is lovely worked for your family or as a gift.
