Mill Hill Beaded Cross Stitch Kits - New Designs!

Mill Hill Buttons & Beads Kits are counted cross stitch kits that you embellish with glass beads and a coordinating ceramic button. You'll find our newest Mill Hill kits in the Seasonal & Holiday Kits section of the store.

We've added three new beaded cross stitch kits from the 2009 autumn & winter series. It's easy to see why these new cross stitch designs are quickly becoming best sellers!

The Christmas Collage Beaded Stitch Kit is a new cross stitch design from Mill Hill's winter series collection. Buttons & Beads cross stitch kits include glass beads, ceramic button, 14 count painted perforated paper, embroidery floss, needles and chart with instructions. Design is 5" x 5".

Buttons & Beads kits include a unique ceramic button that complements the cross stitch design. Mill Hill's ceramic buttons are hand made in the USA. The Christmas Collage kit includes a red star button.

Mill Hill Buttons & Beads Kits include 14-count perforated paper, painted a color that matches the design. You can see the paper color by looking at the outside perimeter of the design. The painted paper conveniently becomes a designer 'mat' for your completed needle art.

The foundation medium is called perforated 'paper', but it's more substantial than regular paper. The perforated holes in the stitching paper are termed '14-count', which means there will be 14 stitches per inch.

To ensure good coverage across the design, it's typical to use 3 strands of embroidery floss when stitching on perforated paper. Mill Hill cross stitch kits include a design chart with instructions specific to each design, including floss color placement and number of strands.

The Fall Leaves Beaded Stitch Kit is a new beaded cross stitch design from Mill Hill's autumn series collection. It features a beautiful collection of fall leaves, embellished with color coordinated glass beads and a ceramic acorn button.

Coordinating Mill Hill Frames are also available for purchase in the store. These 8" x 8" solid color wood frames come with a dowel for easy display on any surface, such as a table or mantel.
