Counted Canvaswork Designers

Designers of Counted Canvaswork can be hard to find.  I've listed the websites and/or contact information for all the ones I know about in alpha order, including teachers of counted work who occasionally sell their charts to the pubic.  Please note in many cases you will have to buy their works from a shop as many don't sell directly to the public.  I will list the shops that have a lot of charts available on a separate tab.  I don't do counted pieces much myself so please help me keep this up to date by sending me new information and updating the old.  Thanks!


***************************************************************

Needlepoint Now magazine's index will help you locate free designs from counted designers.
https://www.needlepointnow.com/project-information/project-index/

***************************************************************

There is also a wholesale online show for charted pieces run by Norden Crafts that will run from August 10-19, 2015.

http://nordencrafts.com/C-1418/Norden-Fall-Show-2015.aspx

I am told that people can view the show and contact their local needlework shop or one of the ones listed as participating on Norden's show page to place their orders. It's the Consumer Information button:

Eterna Designs or Eterna Silkits (see Yodoma below)
This now defunct silk thread company published charts and kits to promote their silk under the Eterna Silkits name.  Here are two of the three Ginko Leaf designs.  I believe there were several larger kimono patterns.

Eye Candy (Ada Hayden's company)
Ada mostly designs painted canvases but some of her work has been turned into charts for cross stitch.  They'll translate into counted canvaswork pretty easily I think.

Although now more famous for her painted canvas designs, Sharon Garmize started out in the 1980s designing miniature rugs and working custom pieces for doll house collections on silk gauze.  It's worth trying to find some of her rug charts on eBay. You can see one stitched here.  Sharon no longer sells the charts although you might enjoy a visit to her SharonG.com website to look at her painted canvases.

  1. Hi Jane,
    Could you please update the SJ Designs link? That's the old site which is no longer being updated. The newest link for pattern books is:

    Thanks! Susan

    1. Thanks for the update, Susan. I'll change the link right away!

      Delete
  2. Could you please locate, if possible, a site for Wanda Linsley, creator of Dresden Kitty and other pulled thread creations? I used to be with EGA, but the chapter closed years ago. We never did anything by her, and EGA doesn't list her e-mail address, and searching online has proved futile. I'd like to purchase Dresden Kitty if/when it becomes available after EGA retires it this December.

    Thank you very much for your time.

    1. I'll see if EGA has an contact information for Ms. Linsley. Give me a day or two to get an answer back, ok?

    2. Anon, I've heard from Wanda Linsley who is on the road right now. She says she'll email me contact information when she gets home again. Stay tuned!
