Hello Cross Stitchers and welcome to The Cross Stitch Cottage on our launch day!
This site has been around 25 years in the making, I was bought my first every tapestry kit when I was 10 in a shop in Sunderland called Chippys. It was like Aladdin’s cave full of threads and fabrics and that started a lifelong obsessions with needlecraft. I have dreamed of owning my own store since that day.
Of course the birth of the internet in between then and now has changed the world a little. We have decided to be completely online although we may do a pop up store from time to time at various fayres and events in the future. The Cross Stitch Cottage is an independent, family run business and our goal is to bring the joy of needlecraft to many through a range of high quality products at great prices. We are avid stitchers ourselves and therefore we are here to help you and offer advice where we can.
To celebrate we have a special competition to win £100 worth of stitching goodies, simply sign up for the newsletter to be in with a chance. Winners will be drawn on Halloween, will you win this treat? Go to our competition page to enter.
Our primary focus will be on service, our goal is to offer a quick and reliable service so we become your go to place for everything you need.
We stock leading brands and some less well known (but amazing) products from around the world. If there is anything you want but we don’t have in stock please email us and we will get it for you. We can deliver most items within 1 week (some American based designers may take slightly longer). We will tell you what it will cost and how long it will take before you order so you can decide whether to proceed.
Our postage is affordable, in the UK we charge 99p for orders up to £50 and after that it is free. For orders in Europe we charge just £4.99 flat rate. Outside of Europe please email us first and we will let you know the cost so you can decide whether to proceed.
We stock the full range of DMC threads, if you have a chart in mind we can make it into a kit for you by bundling up all the threads you need. On most chart listings we have the items you need there ready to be selected.
Ultimately whatever you need we are happy to help, drop us a line with requests and ideas.
Find It Service
We have always known that the range of products out there is huge however we realised just how huge when deciding what to stock. It makes it almost impossible to choose!
We are launching with our ‘Find It’ service. If you have an idea of what you want but want some options you can simply complete our online form with some information on what you are looking for (style, theme, size, stitching difficulty etc) and we will search through the four corners of the world and send you some ideas. We will include the price and availability of each item so you can decide if you want to buy (and there is no obligation to). There is no charge for this service.
Over the coming months we will launch a range of tutorials and support through a range of video tutorials, blogs and discussions. We want you to interact and chat with us, you can find us on
