Yiotas Review / Travelling Pattern!

I recently received an email asking me if I would be interested in reviewing of cross stitch kit of my choice. Not one to turn down an offer as good as this I spent an enjoyable couple of hours on Yiotas' website looking at all the counted cross stitch kits available. I found the website very easy to use with different categories such as Angels, Animals - split into individual categories, fantasy, fairies, cottages and lots more besides.

I eventually, after much deliberation, chose Daisies and it arrived a couple of days ago in a very sturdy evenlope marked do not bend. When I opened the chart I found the threads all wound onto bobbins which to me is heaven itself as I hate winding threads on to bobbins. The chart looks very easy to read and is A3 in size so the symbols are very clear to read. The kit came with Aida and a needle. I know some stitchers prefer to use their own fabric and you can also order just the chart either by email or post. Here are some pictures:-

Heres the design I choose.



The contents of the package which includes the thread on bobbins, aida and needle.



The chart itself is over two A3 pages and is very clear.



I am really looking forward to stitching this design and will definitely be ordering from Yiotas' website again. Thank you for the opportunity to review your products.

Until next time, happy stitching
