Cross Stitch Basics

I will never forget the day I discovered counted cross stitch more than 30 years ago! I found looking at the blank fabric with no printing really scary! I had simply no idea that this absorbing craft existed and to say it changed my life is no exaggeration!

I have written these pages to offer advice and help to anyone interested in cross stitch butparticularly if you are new to this absorbing and creative hobby.

Victorian Posies - Red Poppies

This pretty posy has been taken from a Berlin pattern and has been convertedin to a cross stitch chart, ideal for you if you have not attemptedcounting from a chart before. To find this in our shop, just click through to my Starter Kits and find the Red Poppies and my Pink Roses and much more besides!

Happy Stitching!

You have been warned - it is addictive!
