A Comprehensive Guide to Cross Stitch Designers

ETA: I have now created a page as it will be easier to update and for everyone to find the link is here

Ohk maybe a bit pretentious on the title! But I was perusing facebook, as you do, and in one of the groups there was someone making a comment about etsy patterns. A beginner who really didn't know that there was so much more out there outside etsy. THEN the fun began as more and more people commented about not knowing a lot of other designers. Some knew some, but there were so many that weren't known by many.

So this is nowhere near a comprehensive list as I don't know every designer out there and I will ask for people to PLEASE post in the comments and share ones not on this list and I'll come back and add them in when I get a chance.

I have tried to link to the designer's page/blog where possible so it may not be the best place to buy the patterns but it is the best place to find out more and see a comprehensive list of the available patterns I hope! In no particular order and no particular theme (I may come back and edit this but want to get this list out there)

IF YOU HAVE ANY DESIGNERS I HAVEN'T SHARED HERE PLEASE COMMENT AND I WILL ADD!

Designers


 Magazines

 Websites

Books

I've run out of time right now to post anything more as my lunch break is over but please if you see any glaring holes or I've forgotten your favourite designer (and there is a high chance) please post a link below and I'll get it in ASAP.

Happy Stitching,
Caitlin

    1. I have about half the ones you mentioned in the list above and I will go through and add the rest when I get a moment! Thank you! Yeah some of the ones are retired which means they aren't on everyone's minds anymore but they are good designs and worth searching for if that is a style that interests you.

    1. Thank you, I realised how needed it was especially with a group of people coming through facebook who don't even realise there is anything outside etsy.
