Mystery Projects

  • Chandail's Mystery Projects are those that are stitched in phases. Each phase includes a section of the canvas that has been stitched while the rest remains a mystery!  As a section is completed it will be revealed and its stitch guide and kit will be mailed to you. Enjoy stitching these projects in the comfort of your home.
  • Chandail's Past Mystery Projects work just as mystery projects with phases and monthly kits; however, the piece has been fully revealed.  They are available for  sign-up at any time.  But note, we only have a limited number of the unique embellishments that go with the projects.


Past Mystery Project:
Zachariah The Elephant

Our elegant Zachariah is filled with Swarovski crystals, beads, ribbons, unique threads, surprising techniques and beautiful stitches.

Canvas Design by Raymond Crawford.

Stitch Design and Guides by Cindy Howland.

Each of the six kits reveal Zachariah's splendor and include an extensive stitch guide with photos to walk you through easily.

Finish him like we have as a stand-up or he would be beautifully framed.  But, please note, our kitted background thread amount is what is needed to go around him for finishing as a stand-up.   Let us know if you would like more thread to finish him differently.

Limited number of special embellishments.

  Final Reveal as shown in Needlepoint Now!
