Review of Shropshire Map Chartpack
This design has plenty of little details using half squares, so Evenweave is recommended. Another challenge for a novice like me is that due to the nature of the design, threads are difficult to start and tie off (as there's lots of backstitch and less crossstitch), and as a result, threads run across the back for long distances. I did resort to knots in some of the lettering. ***The design itself is beautiful with well thought out lettering, intricate buildings etc. I'm really happy with how they turned out. My greatest gripe is the cheap production values. The chart has been drawn by hand, which makes it hard to read in places (which square does this half-stitch belong to?). The symbols for buildings are also presented on a separate page, some with enlarged pictures (but not all of them that would need it in my opinion). The coat of arms is also on a separate page, one chart for the cross-stitch and another chart for the backstitch. The separation of the whole thing into many pages is a bit clumsy. It seems to be mainly due to concerns over clarity, in which case using colours would help. And machine-printing, obviously. The sheets were also strangely folded, close to the bottom edge and not in the middle, as if the plastic package was too small. It all adds up to the impression that the manufacturing of the pack doesn't reflect the thought that has gone into the design itself. ***Some of the severa l sheets included contain optional elements, such as buildings and landmarks, which may not appear in the chart itself, and all the letters of the stitched alphabet. Some of the information is common to all of the chartpacks in the map series, but each pack has its own, separate thread list. It's a great idea to give the stitcher the opportunity to customise the work. For example, I added railways in grey. And Sewandso's material list was spot on. ***In the end, I was very happy with the result. I think I'll add a felt backing to hide the mess I made on the back. I deduct two stars for the cheapness of the production and resulting lack of clarity, and add one star for the customisation opportun ities. So, four stars.
