I learned to stitch needlepoint tapestry as a child and have been an avid stitcher ever since. I used to design full-size needlepoint items for myself but have now turned my interest to miniature petitpoint.
Before these patterns are made available, they are designed and stitched by myself. Any corrections to the colours etc are then made, detailed instructions relating to the particular pattern are written and the pattern is amended prior to releasing for sale. In other words, the patterns have had any "bugs" taken out of them. Whilst this involves extra effort on my part, I feel it is essential to ensure there are no problems with the patterns before you, the customer, receive them.
Each pattern comes with a full colour chart with symbols, and an instruction and tips sheet. They are printed on quality paper. The patterns are rated for level of difficulty of the design, and indicate the thread count recommended. The materials required to complete the project are listed on the back of the packet for your convenience, and each pattern comes in its own plastic sleeve.
Many of my cross-stitch designs can also be used as beginner petitpoint projects, as they are all based on 32 count fabric and contain a limited number of colours. Please see the Cross Stitch section of this website for those patterns.
