Cross-stitch Kits and Charts
Our counted cross
stitch designers are listed below. Some of our designers only offer
cross stitch kits (i.e. complete with cross stitch chart, fabric, threads
and needles), whereas some of our designers offer counted cross stitch
kits OR the option to buy just the counted
cross stitch chart pack. Chart packs are ideal if you want to change
the colours or stitch the piece on a different count / type of fabric.
The complete kit is usually the most economical way to buy the fabric
and all the threads required to complete the design.
