The cross stitch kits are great - easy to make and follow. The 3 stitch-a-longs I've done so far have given me many pleasurable hours. The quality of the materials are also top notch.
The needle minders are fun to use and collect! I can't wait also to receive my next Caterpillar Club box!

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!
— Gemma Slater
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
