Why do you have so few patterns on your site?
We take great pride in the quality of our designs.
Each pattern selected for inclusion in our galleries undergoes a rigorous evaluation process. Only those that meet our exacting standards are considered.
In keeping with our Mission Statement, our goal is to present you with only the most vivid and stunning collection of designs that can be found nowhere else on the web.
Your complete kits seem a bit pricey. Why?
All of our kits include everything you need to successfully complete your design, and many require up to 70 skeins of floss.
Unlike many store-purchased patterns, ours contain full skeins for each color required (with minor exceptions). All leftover floss can be used for future stitching projects.
How do I get a Discount Coupon?
We offer discount coupons to valued
customers who have purchased from us in the past. Look for these discount codes in your email. They can be applied instantly at checkout.

What about returns or refunds?
Due to the obvious nature of our products, all sales are final. (Unused complete kits are excepted. S&H and re-stocking fees apply.) However, if you are unsatisfied with any of our offerings, please contact us, and we will help you to a satisfactory solution to your issue.
What if I have a problem with my chart or kit?
If you detect an error in any of our patterns, please notify us immediately. We will correct it, and provide you an updated version at no cost to you.
If your complete kit has a missing component, we will also replace it for you at no charge.
Can I get a chart in other flosses than DMC?
We can redesign any chart to support flosses beyond DMC, including Anchor and J&P Coats, among others. There is an additional nominal fee for this service. Let us know if we can provide you with this option.
