Some of our most popular items are the cross stitch alphabet charts, perfect for the rooms of children or new born babies. Often busy and colourful, they are a fun pattern to complete and are an alternative way to learn the alphabet. This makes cross stich alphabet charts some of the most useful and practical designs around, as they look good and can be used multiple times. Here at Past Impressions we like to make sure we’ve got a wide range for you to choose from.

Alphabet Cross Stitch Sampler

Stitching alphabets on to charts and samplers is not a new idea, with this practice being traced back to the 17th century. Generally speaking they were not on their own at this time, with numbers and quotations also being included on samplers. As the 18th century came around, samplers were used to show and develop knowledge (in this case, the alphabet) and closely followed the form that we know now. As time progressed, alphabet charts were sewn by girls as a way to learn and this is still a method used today.

Our collection of letter charts comes in a range of styles and designs. What they all have in common though is colour. Bright and bold with eye-catching designs, the A – Z cross stitch kits are always great to look at to keep people interested in what they are showing. We’ve got some brilliant designs featuring animals, flowers, Mr Men and Beatrix Potter characters so that you can choose the right one for you.

Cross Stitch Kit with Animals & Alphabet

And some of our kits even double as birth samplers so they can be used for both purposes. Whether you’re stitching one for yourself or as gift for a friend or relative, we know that they will be appreciated and loved. All of our product descriptions contain everything you need to know about each kit, including what each one contains and how big they are, so that you know exactly what you’re getting.

As always, if you’ve got any comments or want to send us a picture of your completed designs we’d love to hear from you. Simply leave a comment below or follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Google+.
