About Jane

Jane Greenoff, renowned cross stitch designer, bestselling author, successful business woman and founder of the Cross Stitch Guild. 

She is the author of Vivebooks Hardanger for the Horrified, and (with Sue Hawkins) The Cross Stitch Guild Design and Pattern Book.

Jane Greenoff has written 23 books on cross stitch, including The Cross Stitcher’s Bible (David & Charles) which was translated into 10 languages.

She founded the Cross Stitch Guild in March 1996, in order to provide an organisation specifically for cross stitch and counted thread addicts. Today, Jane works as the Cross Stitch Guild’s Design Director. 

Jane’s Stitch2, Cross Stitch Designer software, the best selling software of its kind, is highly regarded by top designers.

Jane’s latest project is Jane Greenoff Finder of Treasures. This is her own description of her new venture: ‘What am I to do with a life-long passion for stitching, the ability to sniff out an antique sampler a mile away, and an address book bursting with talented makers? I simply have to share… and have an excuse to hunt out treasures for you and me! Welcome to my specially curated collection of treasures, some practical, some whimsical, some vintage, some bespoke, but all achingly desirable.’

In addition she is in constant demand for personal appearances, classes and workshops.
