Because cross stitch is, by far, the easiest embroidery stitch, it is often the first kind of sewing kit many of us venture to try. When we first experience the stunning results that cross stitch provides, we are excited to move from one kit to the next as it offers hours of entertainment as well as beautiful works of needle art to display and/or give as gifts. Personally, I have over 40 years of cross stitch experience and I still love discovering new kits, designs and supplies. There really are some items that make cross stitching even easier, if you can believe it, like magnifying glasses and floor frames, which have become my most “valuable” assets when stitching.
Join me and my fellow cross stitchers as we discover and share fabulous cross stitch kits, patterns, books, and supplies. We also offer tutorials, basic instructions, and more about cross stitch including how to add beads to your cross stitch projects.
