Who are Paget Designs?

Paget Designs was formed in 1998 by Miriam & Irene .

The cross stitch kits are designed by Irene to be technically straight forward, no part stitches with minimal backstitch and french knots.

By using larger count fabric (8, 11 & 14 Aida) and supplying the chart in an A4 colour/symbol format the kits are ideal for those who may have difficulty with vision and/or dexterity.

This means that those who perhaps were reluctantly giving up stitching can continue and our designs are an ideal starting point for those of all ages with little or no experience.

All the kits contain everything needed to complete the design. Designs for cards and bookmarks contain all the materials needed to mount the stitched design.
