Lesley Teare Cross Stitch Design

News about my designs 2020!

5th Dec 2019

Over the past few years I have enjoyed working on 11 free SALs for you to stitch. I hope the quality of the designs has been high and that many of you have enjoyed stitching some of them.

It is now time for changes, as after 30 years of designing for books and magazines I have decided to cut back on my workload. Some of you may have noticed over the past year that there are fewer designs of mine in the magazines as I am now only working part time and I now wish to concentrate on the designs that I particularly enjoy doing.

Apart from continuing with my part series on my Website Blog (where you will still be able to download designs for free) https://www.lesleyteare.com/blog the other main SALs like my Owl and Floral cushion that have been available throughout this year, will not continue.

My Lesley Teare group, run by Toni Ball, will carry on and you will still be able to add comments and pictures of designs of mine that you are working on or have stitched – please do come and join us. https://www.facebook.com/groups/529145740484076/?ref=bookmarks

However, the exciting news for me for 2020 is you will be able to join me and the lovely Creative Poppy for another SAL - Birds and blackwork flowers! This year there is a small charge, but the 12 designs are based on my blackwork and colourful cross stitch designs of mine that have become so popular. The colourful birds and attractive blackwork flowers are simple to stitch and each design will make a gorgeous card or sections for a quilt, but the complete set, I think, will make a stunning sampler.

Here is the link for the SAL so please take a look and hopefully join us now for another exciting stitching year. The small picture shows a small close up of January's design and on the larger picture a view of the first one and the sections for the the other 11! Here are the links for further details:


Thank you so much for all of your support over the past 30 years and I hope you will continue to join me in my design ventures.

Happy stitching, Lesley
