Welcome to the Orthodox Stitcher! Here you will find original, handcrafted cross stitch designs created with the Orthodox Christian in mind. The Orthodox Stitcher is an extension of Fearn Abbey Needleworks, where you will find more original cross stitch designs coming to you from the beautiful Northern Highlands of Scotland. My hope for The Orthodox Stitcher is that this will be a unique and blessed place for Orthodox Christians ~ and indeed, anyone who feels called to visit and stay awhile ~ to develop their creative side, and to honor God. Glory to God for all things!


Much of the art and design you see on this blog is a labor of love and given to you absolutely free. It is my attempt to glorify God and share Christ with those who visit. If you particularly feel called to generosity, though, and wish to give money for anything you take or share, please make your donation to Ancient Faith Radio.

St Thomas the Apostle

While I am working on some new designs and my special installment series, I thought I would revisit my other saint designs and share them with you. This is St Thomas the Apostle. He is done with DMC threads and is another large pattern like St Duthac. The colors are brighter than what the photo shows (I'm still working on getting good photos of my stitching -- I am not blessed with all sorts of fancy, expensive cameras and equipment, so bear with me!). This design was stitched with three threads since I did it on black fabric. It is very vibrant in real life!

If you would like your own St Thomas, he is available as a PDF download pattern or a kit, HERE.

Thank you for stopping by. Again, your prayers are coveted as I get this new venture off the ground!
