Cross Stitch Shops in England

Cross stitch shops and needlecraft stores in the UK are sometimes not easy to find, because they are often listed within other categories such as sewing and knitting shops. This is a project to build a unique index of all the UK shops where you can buy specialist cross stitch supplies, starting with England. If you cannot find what you want locally, you can easily order your cross stitch online.

I would be very pleased to hear about any shops I've missed, so they can be added to the listing, which is an absolutely free service.

County Maps in Cross Stitch

You can stitch a map of your own county in cross stitch. These designs by Susan Ryder are produced by Heritage Crafts. Each kit contains the cross stitch chart and all the DMC stranded cotton threads you will need. The threads are pre-sorted onto organiser cards. There is a choice of either 14 count aida or 27 count evenweave fabric. Needle and instructions are also included.
