Welcome to Glendon Place - a cross-stitch and counted thread design company offering unique and finely-detailed charts for the most discriminating stitcher, as well as the occasional needleart enthusiast. Glendon Place offers designs in a variety of topics, which means you're sure to find something you like and just can't live without! Some designs simply require ordinary floss and a solid color of fabric, while others are more challenging and suggest using an over-dyed fabric, and may incorporate variegated floss, metallic braid and embellishments such as seed beads, buttons or glass/crystal treasures. Choosing to stitch a Glendon Place design will result in a needleart piece of heirloom quality that will be enjoyed by you, as well as family and friends for year to come.
