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

Special Offer for February 2017

Creating your own Color Scheme – Part 2

Anatolia in multi colors

New Color – ANATOLIA -09

How to create a Color Scheme with cross-point™ – Part 2

In my last month’s blog (posted January 30) I used another new ANATOLIA colorway, color 10, to show how you can put together a cohesive whole room scheme with color related cross-point™ pillow kits. Since Anatolia is the Special Design of the Month offer as well, here are some suggestions for patterns that would blend beautifully with the new color 09 shown above, all at 20% Off Retail.

companion pillow kits to ANA-09In addition to those patterns shown above, also color coordinated are Soumak 05, Flame Stitch 01, Nilos 02 and Zagros 02, as well as some of the all red combinations such as Basilica 03, Turin 02, and Pisac 04. As stated earlier, if you order any ANATOLIA kit, companions listed in the blog posts as well as on the website will be discounted at the 20% Off Retail during February. I hope you will take advantage of this generous offer.

Also, just a reminder, I offer custom colors without the set-up charge for each pattern selected as the current Design of the Month. Please refer to the website page for information on the custom color process. The custom pillows shown below were stitched by Molly Ellsworth for a club house in South Carolina.

Creating your own Color Scheme

winter color scheme for cross-point pillows

A Room of cross-point Pillows

How to create a Color Scheme with cross-point™

Have you discovered as so many have, that stitching with the cross-point Technique© is fast, fun and easy? Are you interested in putting together cross-point patterns to stitch in a cohesive color scheme for an entire room as I have? (photo above is of my own living room in winter).

My Special Offer this month and next is my pattern ANATOLIA  which includes two new colorways on the website Pattern Page. I want to show how easy it is to put together colors and patterns that blend or contrast to create a scheme for an entire room setting.

Anatolia in grayed green brownsAnatolia color 10 in greyed brown greens is based on historic tapestry colors, a neutral appearing collection of colors that can be accented by reds or grayed blue greens for example.

I wrote about that previously under Color Schemes.NEW brown greens & neutrals 72  In addition to Topkapi 09, Basilica 08, Grape with Leaf Border 07, (shown at left), also 12th Century Geometric 05 and Morocco Stripe 08 would work with the Anatolia design. two patterns in greyed brown greens

Option with Reds:

Companion pillows to add contrast will depend on your own personal style and existing upholstery and rugs. If you want to add red as your accent, then I have several suggestions; choices are available in garnet, paprika, coral and spice colors:
red companions to Anatolia 10

Options with sea colors:

Sea colors can range from teals to grayed sages, ice blue sea-foam, grayed blues, to turquoise. Here a few suggestions, more can be found on cross-point.com:sea-green-companions

Next up, a color scheme for ANATOLIA 09.

JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2017
Pattern: ANATOLIA

Anatolia Pillow and UpholsteryANATOLIA IS FUN TO STITCH!

This pattern consists of a collection of motifs from both North African and Persian rugs, attesting once again how universal some design elements truly are. The center design lends itself beautifully to upholstery application and, depending on actual size requirements, can be adapted to stools, ottomans, or chair seats using the border elements as shown on the chair above (ANA-02).   At cross-point™ you always have the option of custom colors and custom sizes.

Anatolia is available in two sizes for pillows, 19×19″ square (50 x 50cm), and 19×14″ rectangle (50 x 35cm). Also available for upholstery by the square inch or centimeter. On the website pattern page you can see all available stock colors, many shown with possible companion pillow kits. During this Special Offer, I will extend a courtesy discount to companion kits if ordered at the same time. The charts for stitching include a separate sheet for the center diagonals in the main pattern, plus our usual individual pattern Instructions and the cross-point™ Technique pages. For more kit contents information, please visit the website.

Anatolia Square regular price is $119.00 and $95.20 with this Special Offer.
Anatolia Back Pillow regular price is $89.00 and $71.20 with this Special Offer.

Two new colorways have been added:

In the next day or two I will also post two new colorways on the website: #ANA-09 & #ANBP-09 (bright multi colors); and #ANA-10 & #ANBP-10 (grayed green browns old Tapestry colors).
