Just what was expected and arrived right on time. Excited to get some time to stitch.

This was my first ever cross stitch project! The pattern was super easy to follow.
In 2007, I was living in Greenpoint Brooklyn, and spotted some antique cross-stitched silhouettes in the lobby of a friend's apartment building. This was the spark. The next time I saw my mom, who seemed to have tried every craft in the book, I asked her to show me how to cross-stitch again. She reminded me of the technique and from then on, I was obsessed.
In 2008, wanting a change from city-living, I moved out to more rural Pennsylvania. Unsure of what I would do for work, I kept on stitching, and stitching, and stitching. With passion, the magic of Etsy, some struggle, and a little bit of luck, I was able to turn the little shop I'd started as an outlet for my creative whims into my full-time job.
Since then, chez-sucre-chez has been featured in several US and international publications, taken part in craft fairs from coast-to-coast, done projects with huge names like Martha Stewart and Urban Outfitters, and inspired many crafty gals (and more than just a few guys) to take up interest in cross-stitch, or to rediscover it all over again.
This last accomplishment might be my favourite. Through Etsy and the various craft-fairs, I've been able to connect with a wonderful range of people who have kept me inspired to keep on creating new designs and do-it-yourself kits.

Additional policies and FAQs
(sorry, i am no longer taking on new consignment relationships....)
generally, i charge a small design/patterning fee for custom work, but after that, the pricing is comparable to the pieces you see in my shop - it's just a matter of time and materials.
