Free Cross-Stitch 101 Guide

I remember learning to cross stitch as a young girl. My mother taught me, I think because I wanted to learn it (having seen her do a lot of cross stitching.) My grandmother cross-stitched, too. She made my Christmas stocking and a baby blanket, both of which have cross-stitch work. And her mother cross-stitched – a lovely piece of her’s still hangs in my mother’s house today.

Cross stitching is a wonderful hobby. It’s a methodical, peaceful art, with a rich history, and it’s really quite simple to do.

This is why Stitch People has created a free Cross-Stitch 101 guide. Yes – FREE. It’s available digitally, for download only (there is no physical copy of this guide). But it’s FREE and you should spread the good word of cross stitch to your friends and family. They might thank you!

Who knows – maybe your friend’s grandmother passed away before they had the chance to learn cross stitching from her, and learning cross stitch will help your friend feel connected to dear, old Grammy.


Download and print a couple copies for an activity night with a local church youth group, or for a boy scout or girl scout activity! Gather your family, and learn a new skill together for a fun family night! Start a “craft club” with some of your friends, and commit to learning a new skill each month, starting with cross stitching!

Create an occasion to learn the skill and the art of cross stitching. You’ll be glad you did!

  1. Thanks for offering the free cross stitch 101 guide. I’m having trouble downloading. I’m being redirected to page to sign up for your newsletter (which I already get and love!). Any tips?

  2. Hi Lizzy,What a lovely thing to share, thank you! I tried to download the guide, but apparently you have to sign up for the newsletter in order to access it – I’m already signed up (and linked to this post from the most recent newsletter), so it gives me an error – what should I do? 🙂

    Thanks! I’m excited to share this with my daughter!

  3. Welp! When I try to download it asks for my email address, but that throws up an ‘already subscribed’ error. Any ideas? Thanks!

  4. If you’re getting the error that you’re already subscribed to the newsletter, go back to the sign up page and click the link below the pink button! Sorry for the confusion 🙂

  5. Hey Lizzy,
