Counted Cross Stitch By Machine Embroidery

Free Stuff

A note about our free designs--we love sharing our work with the sewing community.  We can support free designs through the purchase of our products.  Ultimately, however, free designs depend on sales.  Should you love our designs as much as we do, we ask you to consider this.  The absence of sales threatens distribution of free designs.
