About Another Time Designs
Designs has been in business since 1998.
After redecorating a bedroom in Victorian decor, I was looking for
patterns of Victorian Ladies to cover my walls. In my search, I decided that I also needed
Vintage picture frames, which led me to Ebay. I'm sure all
of you have spent many hours searching for your most desired Cross Stitch
patterns on Ebay. One of my many
Antique picture frames came with a picture of a Victorian lady. She
was so different, and I was so intrigued by her, that I decided to chart her. That's
when the idea
of opening a new Design Company came to me. I did chart that lady and you
can see her on my design page as "Lady Holland". She isn't my
favorite, but she got the ball rolling so if Another Time Designs is a success, I owe
it all to her.
Designing Cross Stitch isn't a new venture for me. My sister, Margaret
Montes, and I attempted to open a Design Company called DB Designs over 20
years ago. It was much harder then, most of the world had no access to
Cross Stitch designers, other than the designs available in
magazines, catalogs or at our local Needlework or Craft Shop.
The Internet has opened a
whole new world for all of us who are addicted to Cross Stitch. When I
finally started using my computer for more than getting Scoops on my Soaps, I
could not believe the variety of Cross Stitch that was available.
I hope to add a new pattern every few months, and from time
to time, will release one of those original designs from DB Designs. I
have so many ideas, I don't know where to start. As time goes on, I will
be branching out to Victorian Houses and Southern Mansions. I also have
some ideas for Couples and I may throw in a man or two. I will also be
doing a Victorian Nude.
Feel free to give your feedback on all my designs. If you're looking for
something of a certain era, please let us know, we may already have the source
material on hand to design it.
Thank you for visiting my Website, please visit often to see my new designs.
