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. AFR is an internet-based Orthodox ministry which is worldwide. They offer 24-hour-a-day, 365-days-a-year talk radio, music radio, podcasts, and blogs, all by and for Orthodox Christians, and for those interested in Orthodoxy. You can visit them HERE. And you can donate right on this blog via Paypal! Thank you so much for giving generously.

Please Give Generously to AFR

While You're Stitching...

Stitching is a fantastic time to be listening to things edifying and beautiful. I love to listen to AFR while I am stitching.  If you have not listened already to Fr Thomas' 4-part lecture on The Word of the Cross, you really must. It is, in usually Fr Thomas fashion, wonderful. 

I enjoy most of the podcasters on AFR, and I do have my special favorites. Fr Thomas Hopko would have to be Number One Favorite, though. If you haven't listened to his lectures, you can find them here:  Fr Thomas Hopko Lectures.  There are 43 episodes, and The Word of the Cross is found on Page 2. 

May you be blessed with many happy hours of stitching and listening!
