Fine art cross stitch can be complicated, challenging and can also take some time to finish but you will capture the drama and different colours of an old famous painting and also create a heirloom for the family. A cross stitch painting is a wonderful keepsake and you should be proud to have made it.
Many cross stitch shops offer designs from the Old Masters like Monet, Van Gogh, Klimt, Waterhouse, Renoir and many more. To choose your favourite design, decide which painting you would like to stitch and then look first online for all the bargains. Online cross stitch shops can afford to offer better priced and competitive cross stitch kits and patterns. There is a huge variety of fine art cross stitch patterns online. These days, you can also get your cross stitch pattern via email or download so you are saving money on postage. You will need to have a printer to print the pattern or you can email it to a friend who can print the pattern for you. You can not miss your favourite painting into cross stitch, just search the net for fine art cross stitch patterns and you will find it. However if you can not find your design, just email any of the fine art cross stitch shops and most of them will be more than happy to make it for you into a cross stitch pattern.
There is not so much variety of fine art in cross stitch kits, you may need to search for your favourite design a bit more. If you can not find it online, it is a good idea to ask your local craft shop in case they can direct you to the right place. If you still can not find your favourite design into cross stitch kit, then you will have to find it into a cross stitch pattern and buy the materials - fabric and threads - separately.
Once you find the perfect fine art painting in cross stitch kit or pattern, be sure you stitch your initials and date at the bottom of your cross stitch design. It is nice to know who made a masterpiece!
