About Us

Welcome to Tiny Modernist Cross Stitch!

Cross Stitch is such an amazing hobby, and it’s one of the easiest types of needlepoint to learn. There is something so rewarding about seeing a pattern come to life as you work. 

My mom, grandmother, great- grandmother, and several of my great aunts stitched traditional needlepoint, petit point, and cross stitch. I think that subconsciously it was their work that influenced me to take up Cross Stitch.  I really love the detail, colors and sheer amount of time that go into each piece, and I love imagining those ladies stitching in the evenings, listening to an old radio program and sipping tea from a little flowery teacup. I like keeping that tradition alive, but modernizing it, too- with cool patterns that have simple, clean lines, graphic colours, with retro-modern and pop-culture influences. 

Hopefully, the patterns you find here will inspire you to start stitching, or encourage those of you who are already stitchers.

And please remember- I’m always happy to help if you have any questions about cross-stitching or the patterns you find here.

Please contact me with your comments, questions, and ideas!

Happy Stitching!
