Needlework is one of our oldest handicrafts, dating back as far as humans have used fabric and thread to stitch clothing and fashion decorative objects for our homes. Needlework is practical, whimsical, grand, homely... whatever its use requires and its maker desires. For centuries, decorative needlework served as one of few creative outlets available to women, a way to socialize and share knowledge, and a means for anyone in any position in society to develop a skill and style uniquely their own.
Where once inspiration and expertise abounded, today it is hard to find needlework patterns designed to reflect our modern sensibilities and provide us with the simple instruction we need to get started. Walking into a big chain craft store, one would think all needleworkers were 75 years old with an enduring passion for pastel colors and large-eyed kitty cats. But there's a growing movement of young, hip stitchers – and they're looking for 21st century needlework.
Look no farther! Pixikits are designed for those who want to make something fresh and modern that they would actually choose to display in their homes. You won't find pixikits at the chain stores – they're not mass produced for the pastel kitty cat market. We assemble them one at a time in our home studio, because making things with our own two hands is what we love to do.
Not particularly crafty?
Our needlework kits are designed with beginners in mind. Pixikits are hip and fun – but more importantly, they're easy. Pixikits come with all the necessary materials, complete instructions, and lots of gentle reassurance.
