Contemporary counted cross stitch kits
x I’m a complete novice - will I get on OK?
We skill rate each of our designs to show you how easy they will be to tackle. Easy ones are best for complete beginners. Generally they involve little or no backstitch, only whole cross stitches and simple to follow patterns. We also include a full illustrated how to cross stitch guide with each kit or as a free downloadable pdf from the website. We also have three video tutorials available. If none of that works get in touch and we will give you some one on one advice
x I’ve run out of a thread in my kit?
No problem. We try really hard to accurately estimate the amount of thread that will leave you with plenty to spare in case you get in a tangle, but everyone stitches differently so this might happen on occasion! Please get in touch and let us know the kit, colour number and how much more you think you will need and we will pop some extra in the post at no further charge.
x I've got a great idea for a kit
Of course! We’d love to hear from you and are happy to accept bespoke orders.
x I want to buy your kit as a gift - do you offer gift wrap options?
If you pop us an email prior to purchasing, we can make sure we have the correct delivery address, details of the recipient, any message that you’d like to include and we will gift wrap the item for you.
x Do you offer completed cushions or pictures that are already stitched with your designs?
Unfortunately not. Some of our kits take many hours to stitch (and for those of us that love stitching, that is part of the pleasure) and as such it would be too expensive to offer ready stitched items. Maybe you could buy a kit and ask a stitchy friend to make it for you as a gift?
