General information: Cross-Stitch

Although research varies regarding when Cross-Stitch, as we know it today, began, one thing is known for sure -- it's been around for centuries.

It was about thirty years ago that cross-stitch's popularity was revitalized. And in these last three decades, we've seen the production of many new gorgeous fabrics and threads, not to mention, hundreds of thousands of designs -- from simple samplers to intricate works of art. There is something for every skill level and personal taste.

Your own cross-stitch experience may have started with a sampler, perhaps a printed pattern on a dishtowel or pillowcase, or a charted pattern of the many wonderful designs available today. No matter how you began, experienced stitchers know it's fun, relaxing and rewarding. For those just getting started beware -- it's also addictive!
