I want to start cross-stitching some of the patterns from your website. What are my first steps?

Familiarize yourself with the proper way of reading charts. I advise you to watch some tutorials on YouTube on both how to read charts and how to cross-stitch.

Cross-stitching is very easy but counted cross-stitch requires a bit of preparation and planning, especially for large patterns. I suggest starting small and then seeing if you want more challenging projects. I have tagged the easy cross-stitch patterns from my website with ‘Beginner’ tag – this category includes patterns without backstitch.

Where can I buy cross-stitch or embroidery supplies in Vienna, Austria?

I order all of my supplies (also online) and stitching hoops from Reginas Nähzubehör & Änderungsschneiderei, a store in the 2nd district of Vienna. / this is not an affiliate link nor do I have any partnerships with the store. I just like it 🙂

What embroidery paper do you use?

For most of my projects, I use Stickvlies easy tear-away paper from Reginas Nähzubehör & Änderungsschneiderei, a store in the 2nd district of Vienna. / this is not an affiliate link nor do I have any partnerships with the store. I just like it 🙂

I don’t have all of the floss the chart is asking for. What do I do?

You can look up colour alternatives through this free DMC Color Substitute Chart.

How do you create cross-stitch patterns?

I design them in Photoshop and then transfer them to WinStitch. / this is not an affiliate link nor do I have any partnerships with the store. I just like it 🙂

Do you do free custom/on request patterns?

I don’t.

Do you accept commissions for custom patterns?

I do but it really depends on my schedule. Please message me using this form.

After I have stitched your chart, can I sell the finished work?

Yes. What you are not allowed to do is sell my charts or distribute them anywhere else.
