Art-Stitch specializes in unique, vintage-style counted cross stitch and needlepoint designs, in the art nouveau, arts & crafts, and art deco styles.  Inspiration for my designs comes myriad sources, including poster art, stained glass, tilework and ceramics, book illustrations, jewelry and architecture of the turn of the century through the 1930s.

Art-Stitch designs have a fresh look that appeals to stitchers looking for something artistic and classic.  They incorporate the geometry and clean lines of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow style, the elegance and drama of turn of the century posters by Toulouse-Lautrec and others, the flowing lines and curves of plant and animal forms, the classic motifs of the arts & crafts movement, and the bold style of art deco. With an Art-Stitch design, you will create a work of needle art!

Art-Stitch offers a growing line of products.  All designs are available as chart packs, with over twenty also available as complete cross stitch kits.  Approximately thirty designs are also available on handpainted needlepoint canvas.

Chart packs for Art-Stitch designs include a clear, easy to read chart and instructions, a full color photograph of the stitched work, floss recommendations DMC, Anchor and J.& P. Coats floss, dimensions of the design as stitched on a variety of fabric counts, and an “About the Design” feature, explaining the historical context or inspiration for the design.  Cross stitch kits contain all materials needed to complete the project.  Needlepoint canvases are handpainted with careful attention to detail.  Products are reasonably priced and orders are filled quickly.  I am committed to a high level of customer service that will invite you to return.
