Welcome to Little Stitches! I have been an avid stitcher since 1987. During the last 30 years, my passion in stitching has been small designs. This has led to the start of my company, Little Stitches.
Little Stitches are small designs that incorporate beads, charms, ribbons and various finishing techniques. The charts will be in downloaded PDF format delivered through emails. I use Pattern maker software to chart all my designs. Then they are converted to Word document and finally in PDF format. My first series of designs will be strawberry emeries and other small coordinating accessories. Accessory packs containing ribbon, beads, and specialty threads are also available for purchase. I have spent a lot of time in selecting the best combination in beads, ribbon and threads to match my designs and keep it at a very reasonable price. I have received many compliment on the accessory packs. I carry fabric for all my designs. If you need help in ordering fabric or any accessory, please feel free to email me and I am happy to assist you.I have also included selective detailed color pictured steps by steps tutorials for most of my designs in pdf format. Here are some highlight pictures of my designs:
