Cross-Stitch Stitch Guide From Annie’s

Annie’s Crafts has a free, online Cross-Stitch Stitch Guide with Basics and Beyond Basics.

Annie’s, Annie’s Crafts, Annie’s Catalog or remember when they were Annie’s Attic? Whatever you want to call them, I have found their stitch guides to be my go-to quick reference for stitches.
