Our Story



Hi, I'm Angela!  I live in a quiet house next to a creek in the Midwest with my beloved pup Frankie. Colour and Cotton started as a tiny hobby tinkering around with crochet, knitting and needlework.  As I began to fall in love (again) with needlepoint and cross stitching, my shop has expanded to focus on cross stitch patterns, kits, hand dyed threads, fabrics and tools and notions.

My dream of one day opening a brick-and-mortar needlearts shop in my hometown of St. Louis is never far from mind, and my favorite part of this experience has been meeting and building friendships with a lovely community of crafters an artists from all backgrounds.

Thank you for your support of this little idea of mine.  If you want more behind the scenes antics from Frankie and a sneak peek into our day, follow us along on Instagram!
