Stitchtrove is my passion project; I built it as a way of making my stitching journey easier.
I've been cross stitching for 8 years and found existing floss management apps to be fiddly and unreliable.
When it came to finding new patterns to stitch, existing platforms only cared about pushing poor quality patterns for profit and I wanted a way of browsing patterns from reputable designers.
So I created Stitchtrove; not to make a huge profit or run as a full-time business, but as a personal project that hopefully other stitchers can benefit from too.
Contributing to Stitchtrove Pattern Database
Collecting all the data for cross stitch patterns is a huge job, to grow our database we need contributions from pattern designers.
If you are an artist who offers free patterns on your website, please get in touch at our instagram, we will do all the data entry for you, all you need to do is say Hi.
If you would like to support Stitchtrove financially, we will soon be accepting donations.
Donations will be spent on keeping Stitchtrove online through hosting fees.
As a passion project, I don't plan on selling ads, analytics or anything else.
It does, however, cost money to run; I pay to keep it going out of my own money and am happy to do so.
If you enjoy using Stitchtrove and would like to support financially, we will soon be accepting donations.
