Coming off the heels of the Etsy Strike I felt it was important to give some fellow designers a spotlight. The strike and boycott was hard on all of us...big and small shops alike. We all felt the blow of slower sales and engagement in our craft.
Below is a list of vetted talented designers who not only create beautiful work, they contribute positively to the cross stitch community. They are the definition of #communityovercompetition
Yes you read that right! Purchase anything from the designers below to get a free copy of 'Spooky Scary Skeletons' - email your proof of purchase to email@example.com and I will send you the pattern! This offer ends April 30th 2022.
