Resources, guides, supplies, where to shop, and tips from the experts

A subset of embroidery, cross-stitch is a wonderfully addicting kind of needlework that creates a design on fabric by way of tiny little X’s with embroidery floss or other fibers. Common fabric choices are aida, ‘evenweave’, or linen. It has become immensely popular for those fabrics to be coffee/tea dyed for a vintage look or colorful and mottled. Designs styles are anything from antique samplers, primitive, fantasy, to subversive.
