I'm proud to introduce the newest addition to our shop...cross stitch designs!I've been a cross stitcher since I was a teenager. I learned on the basic aida cloth using DMC threads and lots of backstitching. I kept at it pretty regularly throughout my 20's and 30's. As a matter of fact, I started my own small cross stitch and quilt design business in my mid-thirties. The business didn't last long, but my love of cross stitch and creating designs was cemented. I especially love using hand dyed threads and linens, which are now fairly commonplace. It seems cross stitch is enjoying a real revival, and I couldn't be more thrilled!
We'll be adding more designs and some kits in the coming weeks, so keep checking our Cross Stitch page to see what's new!

I'm Robin, the dyer and designer behind October House. You've found my blog, where I ramble on about yarn and knitting, stitching and sewing and anything else that catches my fancy!
I love quiet colors, gentle stitches and making things by hand.
