Carol Leather's blackwork embroidery patterns are released under the name X-Calibre. They are diverse in both subject matter and design size. Whether you are looking for small and cute, elaborate show stoppers or delicately shaded flowers or animals, there is something here for you.
The images on this page are linked to all the designs in that particular range.
The blackwork embroidery patterns are available to purchase and download immediately in PDF format. You will also find details of kits for these designs further down the page.

Each of the blackwork embroidery patterns in Carol's range are also available as complete kits, which include all the materials needed to stitch them. A printed chart will be found in the kit so there is no need to also purchase the downloadable file.
You can choose to stitch on either 14 count Aida or 28 count evenweave fabric. DMC stranded embroidery threads and needle are included. Some kits use seed beads and metallic threads which are also provided.
