Cross Stitch Kits
Virtually all kits are suitable for both beginners and experienced stitchers, though the instructions included in the kit do assume that you have a basic knowledge of how to cross stitch. If you don’t, please refer before you start to stitch, to our printable cross stitch guidance notes, which will help.
Some of our larger kits are likely to keep you occupied for rather a long time - in some cases, getting on for 100 hours. But that must make them exceptionally good value for money!
