Tropical Stitches was born out of my love for cross stitch and my limited budget.  I couldn't afford hand dyed linens and didn't like the garish colors that most companies were producing.  Being a sampler stitcher, I gravitated toward neutral colors  that would showcase reproduction samplers that I love.  At that time and for several years, I was the only one dyeing these types of fabrics.
I specialize in soft, muted colors that will not capture the viewer's attention away from your lovely stitching.  After all the work and love you have put into a project, you want the fabric to enhance it -- not overwhelm it.

Happy stitching!
