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!

Kit contents (of Abacus Designs brand kits)

Fabric - aida - 14 hpi (holes per inch, 25mm) or 18 hpi, as indicated

Threads - Madeira and/or DMC threads ready sorted on the organiser card (unlike many other suppliers).

Needle - individually wrapped.

Pattern - most are printed on several sheets.  We are often complemented, even by very experienced stitchers, on the clarity of our charts.

Our shop also stocks kits by many other companies.
We specialise in canal designs, and you will find many of these in this website.

Most measurements are given only in inches.  One inch (1”) = approx. 25mm.
