Create cross-stitch templates with KXStitch

On the Rasp Pi

KXStitch is also available in the package sources for the Raspberry Pi OS. Combined with the Rasp Pi, KXStitch makes an ideal craft project for children. A child can simply draw a design on paper, then scan or photograph it, and import it into KXStitch. KXStitch then converts the design into an embroidery pattern at the touch of a button, and children can then manually transfer the design to the fabric in the final step.


KXStitch lets you use interesting images and patterns to create cross-stitching patterns. However, KXStitch's complicated handling does tend to spoil the fun slightly.

The latest version of KXStitch is already more than two years old. One can only hope that KXStitch will continue to be actively promoted. For this, it needs both active developers and a certain number of users who work with the program and push its development forward with bug reports and requests. Unfortunately, there seems to be a lack of both at the moment – too bad.
