My affinity for cross-stitch started with my mom. Unfortunately, she passed when I was 10, and there are not many things I can remember about my childhood with her. But the one thing I do remember is seeing her cross stitch and one of her works is a huge framed cross stitch design on the wall of a cat driving a car with 3 birds flying away. My dad used to say that's me driving and those 3 birds are you and your 2 sisters. As I got older, I remembered this and started to cross stitch myself.
After a decade of being addicted to cross stitching, I started an online shop selling branded cross stitch from Dimensions, Janlynn, etc., but after a few years, I started to feel a little disconnected with these brands. I enjoy art and, despite the fact that I cannot afford it, I thought, what if I make cross stitch from art?
I am quite set in my cross-stitching ways. Stitchers would understand this. We like things a certain way. Some of us like black and white charts; some of us want color. Some of us feel repulsion towards any count below 18-count :P Personally, I wanted to stitch to relieve stress and not add to it.
I created The Art of Stitch with that in mind, with all of my favourite things and pet peeves, plus the amazing feedback I got from customers through the early years of development. I'm not afraid of change. Even now, if I find a better way to put a PDF together, I will change all my 500+ PDFs without hesitation. Every year, I would look to change or improve something to make it better for everyone. And if you like your chart a certain way, I'm open to customising it for you the way you like it.
