Patterns & Kits
For those who would like to experience the joy and satisfaction of making their own folk embroideries, we offer beautifully designed embroidery patterns, kits, and traditional counted thread fabric imported from Greece. This type of embroidery is called "counted cross stich" or "cross stitch" in the US.
If this is your first experience, we recommend our BitKits which are small, inexpensive kits featuring historic designs that will give you a taste of folk embroidery. If you've done cross-stitch before or are ready to make a larger embroidery, our other patterns and kits feature a variety of traditional designs in a range of sizes from table mat size to squares to table runners.
Our Demos page shows how to do the basic cross stitch as well as how to hem with a basic or drawn thread hem, as well as learn how to turn your embroidery into a wallhanging or pillow.
We have an extensive library of historic and vintage embroidery patterns from Greece and will be continually adding to our embroidery designs, so check back frequently or sign up for our emails to find out when new designs become available.
