• Suggest a pattern and voting

    Members can suggest pictures that they think would be nice as cross stitch patterns.
    The picture is simply uploaded to the 'Pattern Suggestions and Voting' gallery.

    We can only do patterns from paintings within Public Domain. For a painting to be within Public Domain the artists must have been dead for at least 70 years.

    Please use this format for the image title when uploading the image:
    Artist - Painting name
    If it is an artist not already represented in our catalog, please also state when he/she lived.

    Images suggested will not be visible until approved by us (usually within 48 hours). If there is anything we find unclear regarding the Public Domain rules, it will be moved to the 'Pattern Suggestions - Not complete' gallery until additional information has been entered (by any member).

    Each month the top rated images will be converted to cross stitch patterns and released in our store.

    Any image in the 'Pattern Suggestions and Voting' can be order as pre-release ones. Read more about pre-release patterns here.

    An image is removed from the top-list after 6 months if it has not yet been converted. However it can still be ordered as a pre-release pattern.


    Members and Golden Members can rate each image in the gallery once. Use the rating stars in the upper right corner.

    Only one vote per image from each computer is allowed!

    See the current top list here.

    Here's my progress on David. I had a page finish on the lower right! Almost one whole page, and then a smaller partial page to go for a row finish.

    It was a middle line in this page. I have time until September and then work starts and the tempo will be slower

    Thank you Nirmal!

    I'm envious that you've had some cooler weather - perhaps it will start moving westward! We're still in a heat wave

    Yes, Leonid Afremov. I've also got Memories of First Love. I love all of his designs. Almost Winter was my least favorite because it seemed so drab
