Caterpillar Cross Stitch was launched by designer Sally Wilson in 2015 when she spent 9 months of pregnancy trying unsuccessfully to find a modern looking birth sampler to fit in with her new baby's simple and contemporary nursery. Sally creates, by hand in Warwickshire, cross stitch kits, stitch-a-long projects and digital PDF patterns in a variety of colour options. Birth samplers can be fully personalised with baby's name, weight and date of birth and all kits come with a pre-sorted 'Carlos the Caterpillar' thread holder!

We chose the name Caterpillar Cross Stitch because the process of stitching isn't exactly quick. You need patience and faith that slowly, the end product will take shape as a beautiful, bright piece of art to keep for generations to come.
We will be blogging regularly so watch out for updates and please sign up to our newsletter for tips, new designs, fun projects and offers. There are many other ways to keep up to date - please check out our Contact page for details of social media accounts.

The Grace Wreath (Monogram) kit arrived the day after I ordered it and is as beautiful as I imagined it would be. Thank you. H. Elliott
I searched the Internet high and low for a cross stitch to do for my friend's new baby. I was so bored of all 'old, dated' patterns, so was very pleased when I came across this. Beautiful colours. Very easy to follow. Really pleased :) Lauren P.
You are awesome! I have purchased the pattern. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this for me. Haley H.
This cross stitch is beautiful, timeless and will match perfectly with any decor. Thank you Sally for sending the kits safely to Australia and for your care and excellent customer service throughout the process. Jayne K.
I asked a few questions before purchasing and I got a quick reply. Super fast delivery. The design is really modern and different to anything else I have seen. Its going to be the perfect gift for my god-daughters christening. Thanks. Gillian N.

Christmas is by far my favourite time of year - although, doesn't everyone say that?! Fires, mulled wine, Michael Buble on repeat, pantos and the non-stop eating, its basically my idea of heaven.
Recently I was lucky enough to write a guest blog post over on Loretta's popular cross stitch site: Stitching The Night Away. Having run a cross stitch business for nearly 3 years, I regularly hear stitchers' stories and experiences of how cross stitch has not only helped them, but would go so far as to say its changed their lives.
When I was 21 I got the travelling bug. Bored at university and with long Summer holidays usually wasted at home, I decided to jet off with 15 strangers to Vancouver for 3 months. From there, my explorations continued with trips to Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore and a 6 month work placement in Sydney.
