cross-point Design of the Month-February 2019

at 20% Off Retail

#HEL-03P (paprika)


HELIOS is such a good new design we decided to offer it again in February as the Design of the Month. In December introduced a new pattern in 7 color options, HELIOS. Please refer to the blog post of December 23, 2018, for details on how the pattern came about. As many of you know, I love researching the history of design motifs and am fascinated by finding how universal so many are.  This particular motif of a horizontal and vertical line goes back to Ancient cultures, perhaps even before 2000 BC but then reaches throughout eons into more recent Incan and Mesoamerican times.

It is the Design of the Month in February, available in 7 color choices, at the Special Introductory Offer of 20% off Retail. Retail price is $89.00, Special Offer is $71.20. The pattern is also available in custom colors. Please refer to Custom Services on the website page.As with all our special offers, please order from the website page through PayPal. They now also offer over-time-payments. We refund the 20% back through PayPal when we process the order in our studio.

I really enjoyed stitching both #HEL-01 and #HEL-03P, it took less than 2 weeks for each. Please note that the design changes slightly from colorway to colorway but that also gives this pattern its unique appeal – it can look both traditional and contemporary, a true reflection of how universal the basic motif truly is.
