We've worked with some amazing members of the cross stitch and embroidery art community to create this guide to customizing skin tones in cross stitch patterns using DMC and Cosmo brand embroidery threads.

We'd love to introduce you to the community members that worked on this project with us!
E. Julien, Gary Wayne Hovatter and Shelia McCann, you may know them as the popular Sunshine Stitchers on YouTube. I like listening to them chat while I work in the afternoons, they are just a great trio of stitchers.

Eling Chang, who is one of our favorite artists of all time. Her illustrations, felt creations and art are amazing.

Melanie Watkins has been stitching with us for a very long time, we were thrilled to be able to work with her. She has a FlossTube that you can check out.

And last but absolutely not least, Christian Montgomery who has a delightful FlossTube, Married with Stitches and dyes fabric for Fortnight Fabrics.

If you aren't following them yet, be sure to swing by and say hi. We couldn't have done this project without their extremely valuable guidance and input!
