In 2017 after some encouragement
from friends and my husband, I decided to take the step and
an ETSY shop to try and sell some of the items that can be used by
stitchers. The items that are currently listed in the ETSY
are things that a cross-stitcher could use, in colour schemes that I
haven't seen common elsewhere. DLKs Crafts ETSY site
are some samples of the items and an explanation of what some
them are used for so if you know a crafter that does cross-stitch you
now have an idea for a gift for them. Of course, to see what is
currently available check out the ETSY site.
If there is something that you like but the size or colour isn't
available send me an email and I will see what I can do.
Available sizes are
either approx 14"x13" or 19"x13"
Available to fit
either a 11"x11" or a 11"x17" q-snap If you are interesting in a different size please contact me as I do make custom grime guards
Project envelopes -
these are fabric cases that can be used to store your cross-stitch in
while you are working on it. These envelopes are
that the in-progress project can be inserted into the envelope, without
having to take the project off the q-snap or frame each
you put the project away or move it from location to location.
envelope can also hold your pattern and some of your floss for the
these are items that go around the q-snap to cover the edges of your
fabric, to help in keeping it clean so that the oil and dirt from your
hands are not transferred onto the fabric when you are stitching. The
grime guard can also be used to assist in managing/holding the excess
fabric that you require for some of the larger projects.
- this is a small case that can be used to put all those little pieces
of thread that are left over when you have finished stitching with a
thread and you are going to throw the thread away or save it. The
thread catcher can be easily flattened and put into the project envelope
so that no matter where you are you have a spot that you can collect
your loose ends. Some crafters keep their leftover bits of
threads through a calendar year to see all the different colours that
they have used. It is a fun way to see the different colours
used as well as a way to remember some of the projects that were worked
