If you still have questions, you can always ask me. Send me an email at thestrandedstitch@gmail.com and I'll do my best to answer them.

Can kids make your kits?

Some can! I think my kits are manageable for kids ages 10 and up, but I've had a lot of younger customers who have rocked multiple kits, and some much older kids (ie adults) who just never got the hang of it. If your kid can thread a needle, can sit still for awhile, and is interested in cross stitching they should be fine. 

Do you have other designs?

All of my kits are available on my website. However, I do have a lot more pattern designs in my Etsy Shop, The patterns are PDFs you download, so you'll have to collect all the supplies yourself. 

What do I do if I run out of thread?

I try my best to include extra thread of each color in my kits, but it doesn't always end up that way. Sometimes I use more thread because of re-stitching, sometimes I misplace my thread. In any case, if you need more thread please email me with the color number you need and your shipping address and I'll mail you some!

Do you sell wholesale?

I do! If you are a retailer interested in carrying my kits, send me an email thestrandedstitch@gmail.com and I will send you a linesheet!
