Hello I'm Gerda, the designer behind Studio Koekoek. 

About 4 years ago I started Studio Koekoek. I got inspired by my mother in law’s love for cross stitching and wanted to recover the beautiful tradition in a modern way. On the beach of Alicante in Spain I designed my first pattern, and soon many others followed.

I never imaged people all over the world would be stitching my designs. But it happened and I am so thankfull for that. I got connected to crafters throughout the world that share a passion for little stitches. I love the tought that my work helps people to slow down from their hectic lives, reflect and relax while creating something cheerful and colorful. 

I recently fell in love with creating stop motion movies with my cross stitch work. I know - my skills are still very limited, a bit silly at times, and more suitable for low resolution tiny screens then big cinema - but I'd love to keep creating them. 

WHAT YOU'RE MAKING POSSIBLE
Having patrons will mean that the Koekoek cross stitch design family can keep growing. It will ensure that we can
focus more time creating new designs and engage with you to decide what to make next. 
Your support will also help others. I strongly believe in doing business with a social heart, so I will reserve at least 10% of our profit for social projects.

BECOMING A PATRON
You can pledge any amount you choose; you'll get various rewards (listed at right) based on how much you pledge. Pledges will be collected and payments will be processed around the 1st of the month. You can cancel any time.
