November 2017 – Pattern ZAGROS

Zagros (ZAG-01 colors above) is my adaptation of a rug pattern from the talented nomadic Quashquai of south-west Persia. The “chequer” pattern with intricate lacy border motifs is typical of their work, as is the great number of colors used in their patterns.  At cross-point™ we offer both a small rug as well as a pillow in two lively color combinations to stitch for Autumn, our most colorful out-of -doors season and, as well, to provide a cheerful setting during gray Winter months. You won’t get bored stitching this pattern – it is both simple and intricate.Take advantage of this generous offer by ordering both pillow and rug today!
Zagros 02 colors (at right) are bright and happy with a dark green ink background. The rug, #ZAGR-02, is also available.Zagros 02 colors, multi bright with ink background

cross-point MID-YEAR SPECIAL OFFER June 2017

 MID-YEAR SPECIAL OFFER

20% off Retail during our Mid-Year Sale on all cross-point™ kits during June, excluding the Learning Kit and Special Offer pages.

It’s a good time to stock up on kits for summer stitching – on the porch, at the beach, under your favorite shade tree…..

A group of Moghul 03 pillows

Just one of our popular patterns: Moghul – 3 sizes, many colors

After 20 years, cross-point™ is still fast, fun and easy!

My patterns offer a choice of “E” (easy for beginners) to “X” (complex for experienced stitchers) and a whole range of unlabeled patterns that anyone can stitch . But don’t let that influence your choice.  Just read some of the comments on the cross-point™ website from customers who either never stitched before or were confirmed needlepointers.  Many of you are long time cross-point™ stitchers – take the time to teach someone young or new to cross-point™. It can be so satisfying and now is the time with kits available at 20% off Retail.

Ideas for color schemes can be accessed not only from the website, but the blog and facebook pages. Four videos have been added on youtube. The first video was Kristina stitching cross-point’s PISAC pattern. The new videos are Reviewing the contents of your cross-point™ kit, Before you start stitching with cross-point™, and cross-point™ stitching Technique. Continue reading
