A growing trend

Cross stitch has experienced a growing resurgence of late, with both younger and older generations discovering (or rediscovering) the craft. We supply thread, fabric, and kits imported from America.

And in our picture framing service, we employ only traditional methods (no glue or tapes), so that the result can be considered something truly special.
