A couple looking to make a difference in the world through their love of goofy cross stitch pieces.

In 2012, Terry was inspired by several crafty friends to take up cross stitching. Having no idea how to get started, he turned to Emily for instruction. A talented crafter with knitting, crocheting, and cross stitching experience, Emily got Terry started, and from there things have continued to grow.

After a few months of turning out fun, goofy, and occasionally inappropriate cross stitch pieces, both were looking for a way to do something more with their new hobby. From there, an idea was born.

What if, instead of just selling the pieces, that money could go to worthy causes? After a series of attempts to launch the project, Etsy seemed to be the way to go.

Now, here we are. Cross stitch pieces in hand, charities in mind, and a whole lot of hope driving it all. We hope you find something you like in our shop. If not? Request a custom item. If we can make it, we will. And it's all for a good cause.
