Exciting New Stitches
I am really eager and excited to announce our newest cross-stitch pattern book -- Easy Cross-Stitch Cards & Tags, which is a collaboration between the cross-stitch team and the paper craft team here at Annie's. CardMaker editor Tanya Fox approached me last year about putting together a book that would focus on cards made with cross stitch since stitching on paper is such a great trend right now. I happily obliged, and we started brainstorming themes, designers, colors, you name it. And this beauty was born. The 56-page book features 27 quick-and-easy cross-stitch designs covering birthdays, weddings, babies, thank you, thinking of you, Halloween, Christmas and six other holidays.
Each project features the clear, easy-to-read black-and-white charts that you expect from Just CrossStitch, easy-to-understand stitching instructions, clear instructions for crafting the finished projects with paper, and amazing, full-color photography, including step-by-step photos on several of the cards. The book retails for $12.95 and is available at needlework shops and online at AnniesCatalog.com.
I am also excited to announce a new, complete kit from Annie's and Just CrossStitch. The Tulips Tapestry design featured in our April issue is now available in a complete kit from AnniesCatalog.com. The kit features everything, and I mean everything, you could need to stitch this beautiful project. All you have to add is the finishing. The kit retails for $45.99 and includes a 16 x 16-inch piece of Picture This Plus linen, 42 skeins of Sullivans® USA floss (including four overdyeds and one metallic) and a copy of the April issue of Just CrossStitch.
