Design of the Month – April 2020


“When working with one of your kits, several adjectives come to mind: delightful, absorbing, addictive, therapeutic, elegant, relaxing.”

(from the Customer Comments page on the cross-point™ website)cross-point is fast, fun and easy


This month is such a hard time as daily updates on the corona virus leave so many in despair and fear. Fear can wreak havoc on our immune system. It’s a good idea to replace it with something that is “delightful, absorbing and relaxing”. After designing my patterns and stitching our samples over the last 23 years, I still find all those adjectives true for me. Stitching keeps me calm and away from fear as much as possible by keeping busy with my hands. Instead of watching the daily unending news cycle, I can stitch and listen to music or books on tape, I can watch an old TCM movie I have seen many times.

I want to make that possible for all our stitching friends. No other kit can compare to cross-point™. Many confirmed stitchers have told me that I deliver one of best kits on the market! You too will find that stitching on an unpainted canvas in rhythmic fashion has a meditative quality, counting stitches uses the brain and filling in colors allows time for thoughts or talking with friends. Below are just a few patterns from 55 designs in the Collection.

During April choose any pattern, size or color, from the cross-point website to receive a 20% discount. As in the past many years, ordering online processes the payment through PayPal. We issue the discount back through them as we pack up the kit ready for mailing. PayPal now also offers over time payment as an option.



I would love to hear from you. Please comment and rate the blog if you like it. Stay well, remind yourself “this too shall pass”, enjoy Spring in spite of everything, look to the future with hope and love and don’t give in to fear.
