I'm a Nerd. Probably. And I Like Creating Things.

My dad taught me to spin and weave, my grandmother taught me to crochet, sew, and quilt, my grandfather taught me to build birdhouses and do leather work, so naturally I don't do any of those things as an adult because why make things easy on myself!

I love cross stitching because it is something you can pick up and put down as you need to. I just found most of the patterns to be too simple and I prefer a challenge. I also wanted to make things I wanted to put up on my walls. This has led me to create my own patterns in nerdy styles, things that I can sink my teeth into and be proud to display later.

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

I love my wholesale customers, please contact me for rates and terms.

Level of difficulty?

Most of my patterns are "Intermediate" level. That said, it doesn't take long to get to that level with cross stitch.

Is the fabric printed with the colors?

All my patterns are "counted cross stitch" which means nothing is printed on the fabric, you will count stitches from the pattern to know where to place each stitch.
