What do stitchers say?

We’ve sold more than 20,000 books over the last several years, and have just as many happy customers! Here’s what a few of them have to say:

Kimberly L.
Amazon Customer, 2022
”I love this book! I have been cross stitching for over 25 years so I’ve purchased plenty of books of designs. This one is by far the one I’ve loved most. It makes designing a family portrait super easy, and takes all the guesswork out of it.”

Bess C.
Amazon Customer, 2023
“Beginners and experienced stitchers alike will love this book. I’ve been stitching on and off for 15 years and nothing has gotten me more enthusiastic about cross stitching than this book. Not only does it have a lot of unique ideas for portraits, it’s an excellent source for stitching in general. I learned some new things that have vastly improved my ability.”

Alyssa R.
Amazon Customer, 2019
“I have been cross stitching for a few years now and have been doing portraits since the beginning. They make such wonderful gifts. I’ve always used examples from Pinterest or a Google search, but I’m so glad I finally purchased it. Honestly, the selling point for me was the various pet, hair, and font examples. Not a NECESSITY by any means, but definitely helpful if you want some variety or extra special details in your finished project.”

Andrea M.
Amazon Customer, 2021
”I’m still working on my first project and it’s so cute! I love how detailed and organized the book is. Makes it super easy to follow and make your own patterns. Great quality. Awesome buy. I just purchased two more of her books because I loved this one so much. Highly recommend.”
