2017 Mutual Theme
This sampler of the 2017 Mutual Theme, James l: 5 and 6, was stitched on 14 count white Aida cross stitch fabric with two strands of DMC floss. It can also be stitched on 16 count Aida or 28 or 32 count linen or evenweave. Stitch count size is 87 by 80. Finished size on 14 count Aida cloth is 6 1/8" by 5 5/8". Cut your cross stitch fabric to 12" by 12" to allow for fraying and framing.
Sampler fits perfectly into a 9" by 9" premade PotteryBarn frame or can be made into a pillow.
Most of the Mutual Theme samplers are designed for beginner stitchers. I tried again and again to make this sampler simpler without it becoming cartoon-ey and failed. It is definately a more intermediate sampler for somewhat experienced stitchers.

Frequently Asked Questions
- How can I buy these patterns?
Many stores in Utah and Illinois carry these patterns. Art Needlework and Allyn House in Nauvoo carry some of the patterns. Shepherd's Bush in Ogden, Utah, The Craft Center of Fine Stitchery in Fort Union, and the Church Museum of History and Art next to Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Utah also carry some of these patterns. You can also drop me an email at the comment page on this web site or snail mail me at my address listed below. I usually just take checks because I am not set up with a credit card account. I can also take payment through PayPal if you have an account with them. This is the best method for foreign orders. I will need to add Shipping costs (all orders) and sales tax to your order (Utah only). If this web site takes off, I will upgrade to a web store, but I need to see if interest is great enough to double my monthly web hosting fees.
- Why don't you sell these patterns as kits?
All of the materials in these patterns are easily found. The majority of the colors used can be found at your local craft or stitchery store. They are DMC, Weeks Dye Works or Gentle Art Sampler Threads. The fabrics are also readily available. The only exception to this is the large cotton even weave fabric in "Come, Come Ye Saints" sampler, To every thing there is a season" sampler and the "All Things Bright and Beautiful" sampler. They can be found at most needlework specialty stores. The original of "Come, Come Ye Saints" was stitched using Needle Necessity Flosses which are no longer available. The newer editions of this pattern have suitable substitutes. If you own an older version of "Come, Come Ye Saints" suitable substitutes for these flosses are listed below under "What can I substitute for the Needle Necessities flosses?" I would rather stitch, compose, teach or even cook than sit around making kits. I try to make the materials needed as common as possible. I love to buy kits because they are easy and fool proof, but I do not have the time to put them together.
- Some of the symbols in "Come, Come Ye Saints" seem to be repeated.
In early versions of the pattern, this was the case. Newer copies of the pattern have this problem solved. It is such a big pattern that I didn't think anyone would really want to attempt it. Boy was I wrong! This pattern combines parts of several patterns I have made over many years. Because of this, several floss symbols were inadvertently used twice. These are the problems that I have found:
$DMC310 Black-In the Devil's Gate scene (XIII)
$DMC437 Tan Lt-Mountains in Temple Square scene (XLIX);
%DMC543Beige Brown ultra light-tops of Mountains in Temple square scene (XLIX;
%DMC433Brown Very Light- Covered Wagon tops (XXXVI);
8DMC840 beige brown medium-Seagulls (XXXVIII);
*DMC3024 Brown Grey very Light-Salt Lake Temple (XLIX);
^^DMC647 Beaver Grey med-Salt Lake Temple (XLIX);
^^DMC799 Delft Blue Med- all of the skies.
Sorry for any difficulty this may cause. Newer versions of this pattern do not have this problem.
- Can I purchase these patterns for my store, Relief Society or Young Women's groups?
Yes. If you are going to order more than $200.00 of patterns, you may order at the wholesale price. Wholesale orders will be discounted 50% off the retail price. I still need to charge shipping and handling, but with your tax number, you can avoid sales tax. I have tried to price the YW patterns competitively. By the time you make each of your young women a color copy of the cover and a copy of the insides of the pattern, you will be spending about the same as the wholesale price. Contact me for wholesale pricing for large groups.
- Why can't I just buy one pattern for my Young Women's Group and copy it for them?
This breaks the United States Copyright laws. You may only make copies of these patterns with needle and thread. Hours and hours are spent designing and stitching these patterns. I have made them available for sell as a service to those who also want to stitch them. I am not getting rich off of this. These patterns are very reasonably priced when compared to the current stitchery market. It is not worth the time it takes to develop the patterns I sell if I don't sell them. Copying these patterns is stealing.
- I started to stitch "Come, Come Ye Saints" on a different fabric than recommended. What can I do?
This is your chance to be creative. If you are stitching it on a smaller thread count, leave out a verse or some of the sections to get it to fit on your fabric. If you are stitching it on Aida cloth you will need to leave out the sections that require single counted thread work such as the Swedish weaving and patterned darning. You can substitute something you make up to make the pattern uniquely yours or just leave them out. That is why I warn you about this on the pattern and on this web site.
- Which patterns are the easiest?
The Mutual themes, "Nauvoo Temple," then the "Salt Lake Temple-small" and "Temple Square" are quite simple. They do have a lot of top stitching to bring out the details. Medium difficulty patterns are "13th Article of Faith," "Love at Home," "Nauvoo the Beautiful," "For Everything there is a season," Salt Lake Temple Square Sampler," and "A House of God." "Come, Come Ye Saints" is a large project. It is not extremely difficult, but requires a large dose of patience. "All Things Bright and Beautiful" can be stitched my original way with many specialty stitches and the lower Hardanger border, or on Aida using substitutions in the patterns for the tricky parts. A patient intermediate stitcher or a masochistic advanced stitcher can both do this pattern.
If you read the instructions (All 30 pages of them) you should be able to pull this off if you have cross stitched in the past.
- What do I do if I can't find the Needle Necessities floss needed for the "Come, Come Ye Saints" pattern?
It has come to my attention that Needle Necessities Overdyed Threads has gone out of business. The following flosses can be substituted for the ones used in the model:
Needle Necessities 189 (Kismet) is similar to Weeks Dye Works 4105 (Noel). This is used in several of the horizontal sections in the main pattern and the main body of the mountains in the delectable mountain border. The Weeks Dye Works floss is slightly brighter than the Needle Necessities floss, but the effect should be similar.
Needle Necessities 129 (Sequoia) is similar to Weeks Dye works 4121 (Indian Summer). This floss is used in the text of the hymn. It is a very close match to the original colors.
Needle Necessities 146 (Fall Foliage) is similar to Weeks Dye Works 1224 (Amber) and 2256 (Adobe). Use a one foot length of each, alternating to get the range of colors of the original. Since this floss is only used in the little triangle peaks of the delectable mountain border, just using the Amber floss would be perfectly all right. You just won't get the range of colors if you were to alternate the two colors, but this area on the sampler is quite small and no one will really notice,except me, and I never stitch anything the same twice anyway.
- Have you ever considered making a pattern of the Relief Society Declaration?
I have made a pattern for this, but the church copyright department does not allow "derivative" depictions of the Relief Society Declaration, so I can not sell this pattern. The Young Women's Theme does not have this same restriction and I have copyright approval to use this theme. It is now available for purchase.
- In the Young Women's Theme Sampler, what color do I use for "Choice and Accountability?"
I don't know how I missed this! My Bad! Use DMC 921, Copper, to stitch the words "Choice and Accountability."
