Welcome to crossstitchacademy.com! Whether you have never stitched in your life or are an experienced cross-stitcher, there is something here for you!
As someone who discovered cross-stitching on my own, it took me a long time to learn the actual process. With not many resources available at the time, my learning curve was very slow, causing me to waste time, money and a lot of project material.
I decided to start this website in order to help anyone who wants to learn or improve their skills as well as avoid all the mistakes I’ve done. Even though the basics are very simple, there is always something new to learn and discover.
Cross-Stitching requires a lot of patience and concentration and it can be really easy to give it up, especially if your first project is a huge one (like mine was). Depending on your experience level, you will find something useful and tailor-made to your skills.
For beginners, you can start with the following articles on cross-stitching basics:
