Use the search engine below for the following designers we normally stock that are not available through one of the distributors mentioned above.

We are periodically add designers to our searchable database. The following can be found there now, but feel free to contact us for up-to-date information on a design you are looking for.
  • Just Nan - cross stitch (we have a listing of the new design here)
  • Stitch Play Designs - counted canvas
  • The Heart's Content - cross stitch
  • The Purple Thread - cross stitch
  • Threedles Needleart Design - counted thread
You can use the box below to search the designer database. Because of how the search is done you will sometimes get more results than you might think. Searching for "alphabet" will get you alphabet and alphabets. This database contains buttons, charts, embellishments, frames and kits by the designers.

If you have not used pull-down lists often all you need to do is to click on the downward facing triangle to see the other items in the list. Most browsers will let you type in the first character and take you to that section of the list, so you don't need to always scroll down to get to the bottom.
The Search for Designers is useful if you want to find a chart, kit or embellishment pack by its title, designer or anything else. So you can search for "Just" and it will return charts/kits with that as part of their description. If you want to search for more than one keyword type each keyword in and select whether it should look for ANY of those keywords or ALL of them. A search will return different results depending upon whether you select the ANY or ALL keyword match and sometimes whether or not you enclose it in parentheses. With the search set to ANY you will get matches where either of the keywords exists - a lot more than you probably want. For most search you probably want to search for ALL keywords and that is set as the default.
