PLEASE NOTE: INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING UPDATE DUE TO COVID 19. Please note for our printed patterns, economy international shipping from Australia normally would take 2-3 weeks however there are now major current postal delays with many flights cancelled and this cheaper service has been suspended.

Therefore we had to increase our postage prices for our international customers unfortunately to help cover our much more expensive postage costs.

Postage is taking now anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks for our US and UK customers and Canada mail is mostly going by sea which takes 2-3 months.

We recommend for our international customers to purchase pdf downloads where possible so you can get your patterns sooner and cheaper. Alternatively we have international suppliers of our printed patterns you can purchase from please see our retailers page here Artecy Retailers

Welcome to the Artecy Cross Stitch Shop.

The company, Artecy Cross Stitch was started in 2000. For 19 years we have been designing quality cross stitch patterns and offering them for realistic prices so everyone has the ability to enjoy this wonderful craft.We now have a loyal following of thousands of customers who eagerly await the new patterns update every two weeks. All of the images displayed on this website are of the cross stitch image NOT the original photos.

Many hours go into making each pattern, we do a lot of work on each image in various photo editing programs before it is put into the cross stitch software, then we go through each pattern and eliminate colours which do not belong and adjust colours for hair, skin etcSometimes for faces, we may have to totally redesign areas such as eyes, lips etc. We also go through and reduce colours as much as possible and reduce scattered one-off confetti stitches.

We do not just create large photo realistic designs, we try to cater for all customers tastes and skill level. From our Bookmarks, Mini, One and Few Colour designs, right up to our very large patterns, there is something on the website to suit everyone.

We sell counted cross stitch patterns on this website, we do not supply fabric or cottons or kits, however we supply a list of all the DMC cottons needed which you can buy easily at your local craft store, along with your Aida fabric, or any fabric you choose to stitch on.

Our patterns can either be purchased as pdf files, for you to download the pattern online, the patterns are in your account after payment and you will print the pattern yourself or you can pay the higher payment option for us to print and post the pattern to you by mail.

Each pattern comes with:
A colour image of the completed design,
Instructions for putting your pattern together and completing it,
The black and white symbol chart,
A list to show you which DMC cotton colour to use with each symbol,
and a usage summary page to show you how much cotton is needed for each colour.

To select a different currency than displayed please go up to the top right and select the currency you would like to pay with. We hope you enjoy browsing and purchasing from this website and if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

We have an information page for our payment information and general information which includes what we offer our customers as well as instructions and tips to complete your designs.

If you would like an email sent to you every fortnight to let you know when we have updated our patterns please subscribe to our newsletter here.

We understand you may not currently have the time, budget or patience to tackle our larger designs so the patterns in our One and Few Colours section are our patterns which contain 10 colours or less so they are easier and quicker to stitch than our larger designs.

Artecy Cross Stitch is a legitimate business and we very much believe in respecting copyrights of photographers and artists, just as we expect our customers to respect the copyright on our charts. So rest assured we only use images which we have licensed, purchased or have permission to use.

If you would like to know more about Artecy, we also have another website at This website offers a gallery of our patterns for sale, free patterns, testimonials, completed gallery of stitched patterns as well as a wholesale section for retail stores.

For anyone who uses Facebook we have an Artecy Facebook page to connect with our customers here. We now also have a new Artecy Cross Stitch Facebook Group. This is a place for anyone who loves Artecy Cross Stitch designs to display their finished Artecy works or WIP's (Works in Progress) and to get advice and encouragement from fellow Artecy Stitchers. Please feel free to join our Artecy Cross Stitch Group wether you wish to contribute or just look at the beautiful works being completed. You can join here.

Thanks and Best Wishes
