H E L L O

If you’re a cross stitch lover or looking for a new hobby then you are in the right place. I specialise in cross stitch kits for the radical crafter, all designed in house by myself with a good sprinkling of pastels, bold typography and sometimes (but usually) an alternative twist. Cos’ everyone knows metal + cross stitching = awesome.

Or if you are just eyeing up something ready made with a contemporary twist to adorn your home then I have also got you covered.

All kits are designed and made up by hand in Bristol, England. I pride myself in using the best quality products with the lowest carbon footprint as possible. Almost everything is made right here in the UK. You'll find:
- High quality wooden hoops made less than an hour away from my front door.
- Tapestry needles made in Worcestershire, UK.
- 100% cotton aida made in the UK and hand cut to size by my fair hands.
- Full skeins of DMC thread, made in France.
- Felt made in the US but is created from post consumer waste.
- All printed goods use FSC certified stock and are printed in the UK.

All packaging is recyclable. Not a piece of plastic tape in sight!

Paper/card goods are printed on FSC certified stock, printed in the UK and where possible are also printed on recycled materials.

All cards and prints come NAKED (without cellophane!) in a bid to reduce unnecessary plastic packaging. Each print will be sent in a super safe board backed envelope that is 100% recyclable. Be kinder to the environment y'all!

I also take on commissions - send me a message and let’s talk!
