Finally! A quick and easy way to master the mysteries of CROSS STITCH in less than three weeks...
"My Friends and Family Laughed When I Took Up Cross Stitch, But Their Laughter Turned To Amazement When They Saw the Beautiful Masterpieces I Now Create..."
But I had a secret that not a single one of them knew about ... I'll tell you about it shortly...
Dear Friend and Fellow Stitcher,
Let me introduce myself: I'm Janis Applegate and I began cross stitching more than 40 years ago.
Whether you are looking for a creative way to use your hands with cross stitching or you already know the basics of cross stitch but want to get better at it, you've come to the right place.
Now YOU can discover how easy it is to get professional cross stitch results AND have a lot of fun at the same time!
... how I learned Grandma's secret!
Many, many years ago I sat next to my Grandma while she was cross stitching. She made cross stitch pieces for all the family and neighbors and did it so quickly and so easily I was fascinated and soon learnt to love it as well.
She patiently taught me the basics of cross stitch while stitching her own masterpieces that I now cherish. Grandma used to tell me she worked on her projects to help with her arthritis. She knitted and did crochet too, but we all knew her first love was cross stitch.
Following a lengthy break from cross stitch, I only began stitching again when my family had grown up. Now, several years further downline, I'm a grandma myself and it's my turn. I love teaching my granddaughters everything I know about cross stitch, although...
... that wasn't always the case
There was a time when I would look at my grandma's work and think I could never cross stitch like her. My designs all ended up in tangled messes and my stitches were wrong.
Grandma would never make me feel bad. She'd just hand me the seam ripper and help me correct my mistakes, giving me the right technique to make my stitches neat and even. Pretty soon, my stitching became better and in time I grew confident enough to create my own designs.
More recently, I began actively posting to several cross stitch forums. The idea of writing a 'how-to' guide gradually came about after receiving a couple of emails thanking me for all the help and guidance the writers had received.
And so a Cross Stitch guide was born...
From this I began taking notice of the recurring questions being asked in the cross stitch forums. Those queries, in addition to Grandma's teachings, formed the basis of my cross stitch report.
That original report has now been expanded into a practical guide especially for the person who loves to cross stitch and wants to perfect their craft AND the person who's still to pick up a cross stitch pattern, but would love to.
