Counted cross-stitch kits and charts

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.
