I just found out this week that there’s no longer going to be a Cross Stitch and Needle Arts section at MyCraftivity; consequently, no more free cross stitch patterns. Too bad! It looks like this week’s project (a celtic design for a trinket box lid insert) is still up. Since I’m not working on MyCraftivity in an official capacity any longer, I don’t know if someone will eventually take this project down or not. So go check it out while you can.
Since I wasn’t at the meeting where the changes were announced (I was out at a photo shoot with an author), I don’t have the in-depth details. Someone did come by and talk to me about it a little after I questioned it (no one bothered to tell me my team had been disbanded…gee…). There’s a lot of rethinking and redesigning of the site going to happen. A really interesting development is the offering of downloadable project instructions and patterns sold from the MyCraftivity Shop. Their first offerings are some great-looking knitting, crocheting, and felting projects, running from $4 to $6 per project. They’ll be adding more over time from F+W’s and Krause’s craft and needlework books, so check back often, there are sure to be some wonderful things for sale at a very affordable price.
