Whether your summer is in the mountains, on a porch or at the sea, the long awaited season is finally here but it’s short and we have no time to waste making memories in those few months. One of our friends stitches a pillow each summer and dates it in a corner. Just looking at the dates, she says, brings back unique  memories of a specific summer otherwise forgotten.

Our Semi-Annual Sale comes to an end TODAY, June 30. It has been exciting and rewarding to see one of our new patterns, HELIOS, being ordered again and again. It is an easy pattern for all levels of stitching experience. Helios 04 in classic blue and white

Design of the Month – Companion pillow kits


Semi-Annual Sale at 20% Off Retail
companion pillow kits

Companion pillow kits

We had so much fun coming up with companions to our newest design MEDIASCH that we thought it might inspire you to come up with a series of companions to one of your favorite designs. Choosing a pattern from the website in a specific color range is the starting point. Most patterns have companions listed on the same page but there are others that might be chosen as well.

Here is one example:

Top row below #MED-01: left to right – Patterns Tabriz, Morocco Stripe, Zagros;
second row: Patterns Pisac, Nilos, Celtic Stripe;
third row: Patterns Basilica, Chevron, Helios;
fourth row: Patterns Berber Stripe, Soumak, Balouch Stripe
While at least half of the colors in each example are identical, there is no reason not to add another color as a complement. We did that here by adding blue. During our Special Offer this months is an ideal time to add your own companions to your favorite pattern so you can take advantage of the 20% Off Retail price.

Have fun! cross-point is still the fastest way to stitch a pillow!

Pattern: LINDISFARNE for March & April
AT 20% OFF RETAIL

Lindisfarne - Accent Pillow and Back Pillow

Lindisfarne – Accent Pillow and Back Pillow 04 colors

Lindisfarne is available in four color options and in four different sizes, from $159.00, to $99.00, $49.00 and $89.00 – all at 20% Off Retail (less $31.80, $19.80, $9.80 and $17.80 respectively).

cross-point Design of the Month-February 2019


DESIGN OF THE MONTH
FEBRUARY 2019
at 20% Off Retail

#HEL-03P (paprika)

NEW PATTERN – HELIOS

HELIOS is such a good new design we decided to offer it again in February as the Design of the Month. In December cross-point.com 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. Continue reading

cross-point introduces New Pattern Helios


NEW DESIGN – HELIOS
included in our Annual Sale
now at 20% Off Retail

Introducing a new pattern HELIOS

Our new quatrefoil pattern – HELIOSis my interpretation of an ancient and universal design that has taken on various meanings across eons of time. Read more about the history of this motif below. The pillow kit is available in 7 color options and in one size 19 1/2″ x 12 1/2″.

What is interesting to me is how the design changes with just changes in color. The blue colorway, #HEL-04, for example, speaks to me of summer, ocean, beach, the Greek islands – of dazzling white washed walls, blue doors and domes, while the multi-colors in #HEL-01 shown above remind me of Incan textiles of Peru. This is a fast stitched pattern for a “good-for-your-back” pillow cross-point™ has become known for. And, you will find many companion pillow kits in the cross-point™ Collection. Please visit the website HELIOS page to see all.
