Here’s a needlework website that specializes in “gobelins” (tapestries) worked from charts as well as in cross stitch patterns.
This embroidery site, Alita Designs, has plenty of free downloadable charts for the cross stitcher, or for anyone interested in producing, for example, some of the gobelins, or tapestries adapted from famous works of art.
You’ll find animal motifs, florals, religious designs, marine life, and children’s designs. You’ll also find some repeatable motifs for decoration of larger pieces. I have not ordered anything through Alita Designs, so you may wish to contact them before placing an order, to ensure that they are able to fill it. The free patterns are formatted so that they print in sections in a regular printer.
They also have some interesting textile history tidbits on there. Enjoy browsing the site!
