With Caterpillar, I love the fact that there is the option to buy either a full kit or just the pattern which has given me the confidence now to start using all the threads I’ve collected at home.
The needle minders are also the best ever - I don’t know how I’d stitched so long without using one!

I started my first stitch-a-long in 2018 I'm now onto my 4th! Caterpillar has some fabulous, modern and wonderfully colourful designs which are very good value.
I'm also a member of the Facebook group which is fun and very friendly - like one big, happy family. I would recommend the kits to anyone who loves cross stitching as much as I do.

I was drawn in by the vibrant colours and designs. My first kit, Positivity Rules was just the right design to brighten up a difficult time.
The designs are easy to follow and are great for beginners and experienced stitchers to enjoy!

The name Caterpillar Cross Stitch was chosen because the process of stitching isn't exactly quick. You need patience that slowly, the end piece will take shape as a beautiful, bright piece of art to keep for generations to come.LEARN MORE
