New Designer Would Like Tips!

by Karin Stephenson
(Tacoma, WA)

Hello! I am newly retired and can now devote my time to my passion of cross stitch design.

I own PC STITCH PRO, but find the charts I attempt to make do not look "professional" enough (color mismatches, details, etc) so I wind up giving up for a while.

I am trying to launch a whole new 'genre' of designs about GOATS and there are none out there- so I know there are stitchers out there who would love goat designs.

Any tips you could share would be SOOO greatly appreciated, and thank you in advance! 😄
