Welcome to our pages - Where you can immerse yourself in the wonderful world of lace inspired designs

We are a family run group, offering original cross-stitch patterns with most art designs available as charts, so that you can use your own choice of thread and material.  Kits come with large computer generated charts, instruction leaflets, needle and appropriate material for the project. Threads are organized onto numbered skein cards, making it easier for the stitcher to get started.   With oodles of designs on offer, we have tried to make it easy for you to find your way around by splitting things into different categories.
