What is a Tabletopper?

"A tabletopper is a stitched doily. When I was growing up we had lots of doilies in my Mommie's house. There were crocheted ones, knitted ones, embroidered ones, and even a few cross stitched ones! So to keep the tradition going, I present you with the tabletopper: an easy to stitch, easy to maintain "doily" for your house from me!"


We specialize in cross stitched tabletopper doilies, stitched over two threads on a nine square cut of 18 count Anne Cloth from Zweigart, using size 5 pearl cotton and/or 1 ply of Caron Watercolours thread. A tabletopper size is 22 inches by 22 inches. These pieces are durable, washable, and unique accessories for your home. They are fun to stitch and make great presents for that "hard to stitch for" person.

Here are some of the items we are currently selling in our online store that are associated with our designs:
