Thank you for this book!
I bought this book to kick off my stitch people journey and I am in love! The book has so many tips and great ideas. It’s well organized and I love all of the pictures. Joining the stitch people community has been a joy and I can’t wait to see more from Lizzy in the future!
Just got my book,cant wait to create!
I was excited for this since we lived in Alaska for a short time so many of the animals I wanted are in this book. Plus extras like baby animals and different poses. Great addition to the set of books I have.
I am so glad I purchased, It was a lot of money for me but I have been able to really up my cross stitch skills!
Very beautifully designed. Wish there were more animals. Well worth the money.
These patterns are extremely beautiful!
I’ve been using these patterns to create “masked” Santas, Reindeers, Nutcrackers and Snowmen ornaments to gift to loved ones this year. I used the mask pattern from the Hero freebie to create the mask and just replaced a few stitches with a blue thread on the faces of each pattern. They’ve turned out so cute and we’re so quick for me to put together. If I could upload photos here, I would! Thank you for such a fun, imaginative product!
Excited to start on a couple Christmas gifts!
Don't hesitate to buy this! I did, because of the price but it's worth every penny! Very detailed but easy for fairly new stitchers like me! So much info in here; I can't wait to get going. Thank you for this!
It makes your portraits look more beautiful !!
I just received a copy of the 2nd edition of Stitch People (the big book) as a gift. Inside are the directions/guidance I was looking for in this book. I did not realize this book was not meant as a stand-alone, but as a companion book (addendum) to the original. I am now in love again. Sorry for the confusion.
My family has a farm so this was a great addition because most of the characters I needed were in this book. I used almost every animal and barn, even added the bees since, yes, we have a bee farm too. Thank you for helping me find the love of crossstitching again.
I have practiced stabbing things for over 30 years and could not wait to get my book and begin creating my own portraits. The book came and is packed full of ideas, instructions, and well thought out techniques! I look forward to many creative sessions with this guide.
Okay so I’m writing this because I am obsessed with these books, and also because I wish I had reviews to read so I would’ve bought this sooner! It gives you so so many ideas, how tos and little details. For sure an amazing book!
