Hello and a very warm welcome to our website ‘StitcheryDoodahs’.  Previously known as Cross Stitch Arts, we have renamed the site to incorporate the wide range of styles of needle art that we want to feature in the future, including Swiss Darning, Crochet, Knitting, Blackwork and Hardanger.


Run by co-founders, and mother and daughter; Sandy Littlejohns and Deborah Lester, Stitchery Doodahs provide easy to follow needlecraft charts and patterns in a clear and simple PDF format, printable from all computers wherever you are.  Some of these charts are previously published in popular UK magazines ‘Cross Stitch Collection’ and ‘Cross Stitcher,’ and some will be exciting new needlecraft projects.  Our blog will chart our progress as we work on these projects and more.

As chart and pattern designers experienced and established enough to be published in leading needle art magazines, we provide advice and designs for all forms of needlecraft and make stitching our patterns an enjoyable experience for all, from novices to advanced sewers.  We constantly strive to improve the quality, clarity and ease of use of our patterns and charts, and stitchers working on our most challenging designs may like to use our specially formed forum for support and guidance while they work.  Whether you are looking for a new cross stitch project or an advanced needlecraft challenge, we will have something for you.

New Pattern 


'Promise Of New Beginings'


So named because the the yellow rose she holds, this Edwardian lady has been named by one of our Facebook fans in a recent competition.

Not sure what to expect from our charts? Every design has a free sample page and full pattern information available to download and view before you purchase the chart. Details and download link can be found at the bottom of the page for each design. 

You can also download a complete free chart from the Free Charts section with our compliments.

Each design comes with full email support from the designer.
