Welcome to my blog! I am so glad you are here. I am Karyn and am the designer with Rogue Stitchery. Rogue Stitchery providers primarily cross stitch items, all of original design. Currently, there are 100+ cross stitch patterns available, many of which are also available as kits. I anticipate that stitched items for purchase will be available by 2022.
Why cross stitch? Simply put…I love it!! I have cross stitched for the majority of my life. I love reading the charts as if they were maps. The constant and methodical stitches crisscrossing the squares in the Aida fabric are soothing and meditative. It was always my go-to after a stressful day at work, a relaxing way to spend a day off, and a must-have during the ongoing pandemic. Cross stitch is easy to transport (depending on your project), can be worked on a little at a time or a lot, and taps into the creative part of the brain.
Okay, why so many book themes and bookmarks? At heart, I am a reader and a writer. I love fully stocked bookshelves, the smell of a new book, the excitement of a new adventure. I love sauntering through indie bookstores and libraries. Older books with old-fashioned phrasing, worn hardbound covers and slightly frayed pages are to me as precious metals and gemstones. What could be better than discovering whole words within the pages of a book? One day I hope to publish my own.
