Printed Cross Stitch Aida is Here!

It’s been a bit of a journey but the Claire Brown XStitch range of fancy printed aida is now available in my shop.

I’m taking things slowly so the first collection has 13 designs with a mix of Autumn/Fall, Halloween and Best Sellers. Aren’t they pretty?

My personal favourites are these pastel watercolour galaxy designs with so many lovely colours. I’ve kept some for myself so I can start some new projects for the winter.

There’s also a small Halloween collection including the most sparkly glittery black fabric you’ve ever seen. It’s perfect for spooky stitching like my own Ghost patterns, which you can download from my Payhip store.

Everything is available in my main shop and also on Etsy for EU buyers. Only 14ct and one size is currently stocked but if you need something else, I have a request form and will do my best to bring things back at the next update. You can find out more in my FAQ page.
