About ACuriousTwist

On Etsy since 2017

Cross stitch that's naughty, sarcastic, quirky and sprinkled with four letter words.

Your home or space says a lot about you so it goes without saying that you want to adorn it with things that reflect your unique personality. My contemporary cross stitches have bags of personality and speak volumes. My designs are bold, modern, often sarcastic or naughty and have been known to get quite a lot of attention. So, if like me you have a slightly twisted sense of humour and are amused by the gratuitous use of swear words you're going to love these cross stitch designs.

You don't need to be a sewing whizz to make your own piece of cross stitch. All of my kits are aimed at the total beginner and inside the box you'll find a fully illustrated instruction booklet to guide you through. In fact everything you need to complete your project is included and is beautifully packaged making it a fun and quirky gift idea.

You can also download and print my patterns on their own so once you've had some practice you'll be able to make even more cross stitches to reflect your fabulous personality. Don't be surprised if you get bitten by the cross stitch bug. You have been warned!

I love working together with my customers on personalised, custom designs so please get in touch if there is something you would like me to design and stitch for you. This is my favourite part of what I do and gives me the opportunity to really get to know my customers and give them a unique and special piece of cross stitch.

UK standard shipping is 2nd class but you can upgrade to 1st class or signed for delivery during checkout. International postage is standard mail (5-7 days) and customers also have the option to upgrade to tracked and signed for delivery. I will always forward proof of postage to customers
