Needlepoint canvases from photographs can be more difficult to stitch. We recommend using less than 20 colors for less experienced stitchers. If this is a gift, please check with the recipient on what mesh count they prefer to work with. 18 mesh has very small holes and can be difficult to see, 14 is the most common and 12 mesh is better for someone who’s eyesight is not as good as it used to be.


Herr Drosselmeyer is a magician-like figure, with cape and eye patch. A character of great mystery and intrigue. In the Nutcracker Suite story, Herr Drosselmeyer is known as Clara's grandfather (depending on which version of the story you are familiar with, he is sometimes known as Clara's uncle or godfather). He arrives at the family holiday party with gifts for all, and for Clara he brings a wooden nutcracker in the shape of a little man.

Our Herr Drosselmeyer needlepoint stocking, is a wonderful stocking to stitch for your fireplace; with or without the other character stockings from our Nutcracker Suite Christmas stocking set.
