Lacemaking


Lacemakers in blackwork and cross stitch



The Blackwork Lacemaker was one of X-Calibre’s first designs and still holds a special place in our hearts. More designs on this theme can be found in the Special Occasions section and on the Starter Kit page.

If you are ordering any of our cross stitch or blackwork kits please note that the chart is included. Only order the chart if you already have the materials to complete the design.
