Design of the Month – September 2020


Basilica 09 with Balouch 07


20% off Retail – Basilica and Balouch Patterns and companions

During September my SPECIAL OFFER OF 20% OFF RETAIL is for two popular patterns – BASILICA and BALOUCH. Uploaded to the website are two newly stitched color coordinated kits, Basilica 09 with Balouch 07, but my offer is for any of the colors available in those two patterns, from 01 to 09. If you order any of the companions listed on the web page, I will extend this SPECIAL OFFER to those companion kits as well. As always, PayPal bills the Retail Price, we issue the discount back via PayPal when we process the order in house.

Also posted on the website is the new Mediasch color #MED-05, another addition currently being stitched is color 06, navy and terracotta.

This Autumn continues to be a hard time for many as daily updates on the corona virus leave 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, even 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. I can stitch and listen to music or books on tape, I can watch an old TCM movie I have seen many times rather than more dreaded news..

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.

Stay well, remind yourself “this too shall pass”, enjoy the coming cool weather of Fall in spite of everything, look to the future with hope and joy and don’t give in to fear.
