IKIWISI x YH Cross Stitch Designs
This partnership was inspired by our core values of being Canadian-made, supporting small businesses + celebrating the creative efforts of women of colour.
What’s old is new again but this isn’t your grandma’s cross stitching. There’s just something charmingly subversive about combining an old school craft with Yen’s modern designs + our snarky words. We love ourselves a hands-on craft + since cross stitching can be quite meditative, it’s ideal for finding our calm during these unprecedented times.
About YH Cross Stitch Designs
YH Cross Stitch Designs creates DIY cross stitching kits, patterns, custom family portraits, and handstitched greeting cards.
Growing up, Yen's family basement full of crafting and sewing supplies was her unofficial art studio as a child. Inspired by her travel experiences across Canada and the world as well as celebrating special moments by gifting unique handmade gifts, she wanted to share her love for DIY projects, arts and crafts, and embroidery. And you’re coming along for the ride, stitch by stitch. Cross stitch is a simple form of counted thread embroidery. It’s a relaxing hobby that allows you to unwind and unplug anywhere, anytime. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced embroiderer, come stitch back and relax.
