Benefits of CROSS STITCHING

As amazing as it seems, R & S Designs Inc. point out the following six (6) actual benefits which cross stitchers derive, as noted by doctors, in their article titled “Mental Well-Being and Cross Stitching”:

1. Working at one’s own speed and comfort level is beneficial to reduce stress.

2. Non-competitive activity is soothing to the cross stitcher.

3. Creativity is a tremendous “Booster” to the spirit.

4. “Self-expression” is just what the doctor has ordered for positive outcomes.

5. Promoting self-confidence and self-esteem is worthwhile.

6. Completing a project on “your own” fosters self-respect and self-worth.


In addition to all of the benefits listed above, it can also become a great way for you to make personalized gifts for friends, family or colleagues, especially those who seem to have all they need already.

To personalize it you may want to pay attention to the personal likes of the person you are gifting it to. Things such as their favourite colours, a theme or character they like, images that personify who they are, capture a moment or remind them of a special event, etc.
