Cross 'N Patch was started 18 years ago as the brain-child of Emie Bishop. As a life-long stitcher and artist, Emie had always sketched and painted, and also been involved in every form of needlework. While taking an art class these interests came together in her head. She began designing her own samplers--combining what she knew about art and how to create images with her love of fabric, texture and threads.
It wasn't long before other people became interested in Emie's designs and soon she was selling them from the basement of her home. This location continues to be the site of Cross 'N Patch. She designs in a upstairs studio that looks out on the mountains to the west; in the basement below, her staff ships these designs around the world.
Cross 'N Patch designs have evolved as Emie's interest in needlework has grown and deepened. Hence, there are titles that focus on cross-stitch and others that include a wide palette of surface stitches, elaborate Hardanger, and other forms of cut-thread work. As Emie's understanding of stitches deepens, she and her staff prepare detailed illustrations of each stitch, allowing her publications to be generously illustrated. For example, The Unfinished Sampler has 140 illustrated stitches as well as numerous images and charts. As a member of the Charted Designers of America, she has revised and created the illustrations for member firms to use in their publications.
