Cross Stitch at the Stitchin’ Den
The Stitchin’ Den has an ENTIRE FLOOR devoted to Needlework
Sit & Stitch meets every Sunday from 2PM-4PM work on your needlepoint or cross-stitch project. This is a social event with time to sit and work on your project and meet new people.
Cross stitch is beautiful and easy to learn. Your project is worked from a chart onto fabric by counting for placement. These projects can be as easy or as challenging as you want them to be.
The Stitchin’ Den offers great ideas, projects, fibers, fabric and notions.

- French Knots are easy and a great way to accent your stitching. They can be worked in clusters or alone. One color or a bunch. One texture or more. They can be an eye on a critter or a center of a flower. They can add color and texture to any piece.
- Bring your needle up to the right side of the fabric.
- Twist the thread once around the needle. Some say to wrap the thread around more than once. Others say wrapping it multiple times result in a knot being too bulky.
- Hold onto the needle and thread firmly but not too tightly.
- Insert the needle back into the fabric in the same spot, or right next to the same spot.
- Pull the thread through the fabric.
