About us

Floss & Mischief is a British needlework brand selling DIY cross-stitch kits, patterns and tools for the overwhelmed. We believe in the soothing power of stitch, and want you to know the quiet joy of stitching by hand. That’s why our needlework projects are thoughtfully designed for maximum stitch enjoyment: approachable patterns, using easy to follow techniques, that anyone can pick up to escape life for a while.


From the materials we use to how our products are designed, we pay attention to the little details to give you an elegant and supportive stitching experience. By limiting the stitches, colours and complexity, our patterns free you up to simply enjoy the process of stitching.


From the start, we put a modern twist on needlework. Floss & Mischief actually started because of an argument about taxidermy. Genevieve Brading’s boyfriend wanted to fill the house with on-trend stuffed and mounted insects, but she put her foot down as it’s just too creepy. As a peace offering Genevieve designed and stitched some cross-stitch beetles for him. Today, Floss & Mischief still rocks the taxidermy trend and keeps making needlework relevant.
