Stitch Guides by Robin King

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to write both Custom Stitch Guides and Commercial Stitch Guides. I will be listing them here.

First, some definitions: what is a  Custom Stitch Guide and what is a Commercial Stitch Guide?

A Custom Stitch Guide is one selected by the customer. In most cases, I have not personally stitched it. I do select stitches based on previous stitching experience as well as inspiration from other needlepoint. The threads are selected and the stitches are charted. Often there is a drawing or computer rendering... now what's that saying?... a picture is worth a 1000 words? Very true. It takes HOURS, days and even weeks (?) to complete a Custom Stitch Guide. These guides are now commissioned at a per page rate.

A Commercial Stitch Guide is one that I have stitched and is represented by the designer. In most cases these commercial stitch guides are available from the designer, and are included in the price of the canvas. In other cases, these commercial stitch guides are sold separately; either from the designer or myself.

Wholesale prices are available to Shop Owners.

You can email me regarding any further information: creativecats@comcast.net

Look for coming soon! or now available indicating new guides have been added.
