A.   Preview samples are usually emailed within 48 hours (excluding weekends and bank holidays).

Perfect representation of photo

Helene has made a large scale coloured cross stitch pattern from a photograph of my granddaughter using her computer programme. It has symbols in white as well as thread colours for each square which are easy to see. Helene has kept in touch with me throughout, emailing 2 different samples for me to choose which one I preferred. The kit comes with chart in A4 booklet style with Aida , all threads required to complete the project and needles. Excellent value for money. Would recommend this company.

Good quality product and service

The stitch a photo cross stitch kit is excellent. My first one was a photo of my sister’s dog and the completed cross stitch turned out beautifully; so I am starting a second one of my own dogs.

There is nothing to dislike about this product.
