Just in time for holiday gift-giving (especially if the recipient is you!), I invite you to try cross-point™ now at 20% off retail during our 22 year celebration! Give a kit to yourself and a friend, then get together to stitch, laugh, chat – a beautiful way to spend time together….

I am often asked how cross-point™ came about. A detailed history can be found on my blog post at https://cross-pointblog.com/sieglindes-page/sieglindes-background/. I spent time at the New York Museum of Art’s Fabric Research Library, as well as at the Textile Museum in Washington, D.C. I fell in love with the visual splendor of stitched works not just from Transylvania but from many countries. With cross-point™, I marry my easy technique with patterns from around the world and across history, using designs and colors that work for today’s interiors.
I often get emails from stitchers telling me how much they enjoy cross-point™, most recently someone wrote they get depressed when there is nothing to stitch. Others write:
“When working with one of your kits, several adjectives come to mind: delightful, absorbing, addictive, therapeutic, elegant, relaxing.”
“I will never go back to needlepoint! I just love this — and, don’t forget to tell everyone how fast it goes!”
“I’d never stitched anything. But the technique was not hard to learn and the pillow I made was just gorgeous. You would never know the pillow was stitched by a novice!”
Getting started with cross-point™ is easy
No other kit can compare to a cross-point™ kit. To help you stitch your heirloom masterpiece, I supply large full-color charts, our new wonderful jute fabric, a generous supply of the best tapestry wool available, and complete instructions, including easy-to-follow diagrams of stitches for beginners. Every kit has everything you need except the finishing materials for backing and trim, because I feel those are highly personal choices. We do stock over 30 colors of velvet and we offer to finish your kit into a pillow. Please visit Custom Services for pricing.
- Visual learners can watch four short YouTube videos for a quick introduction and how-to:
• Kristina stitching cross-point’s PISAC pattern
• Reviewing the contents of your cross-point™ kit
• Before you start stitching
• The cross-point™ stitching technique
I know you will discover, as many have, that cross-point™ is indeed fast, fun and addictive!
You can do cross-point™ just about anywhere
Since you’re not using a frame or hoop, you can stitch while on the phone, watching television, sitting in a waiting room or by someone’s bedside, on an airplane – basically whenever your hands are free. The jute fabric is easily folded or rolled and the charts are large and easy to read. Many people hesitate to do a “counted” stitch, but my patterns are designed so that elements repeat over and over. Even a complete beginner can learn my technique in two hours!
You’ll find patterns and colors to match any decor
Cross-point™ kits for pillows and rugs are available in 55 patterns in over 300 color choices and in sizes ranging from small to large pillows, including the new wide width as shown in popular home decorating magazines. From Anatolia to Zebra, there is a pattern in colors for every home and every level of stitching competence – ALL available at 20% Off Retail during to December 2018.
