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

Still Here!

Dear friends :: I am still here! It seems to have been an avalanche of unplanned things over the past month or so. I'm afraid I haven't picked up a needle in a week or so. I wish to apologize for leaving you hanging. 

I want to thank you for your prayers for my dear friend's husband. He died on July 25th. I would ask your continued prayers for his dear wife and my dear friend, Pam.

Even in the midst of this somewhat fragmented time, God is SO good, and SO merciful, and SO faithful. And I am grateful.

My goal is to be back in full swing by the first week in September, providing you with designs and downloads again. It's all going forward...just a tiny bit stalled at the moment. Please forgive me!

Meanwhile...be sure to LISTEN to THIS:

And isn't it great to have Kevin Allen back?

I'm looking forward to the program, and I'll be back with you all again soon!

God bless you all...
