Helping crafters spend less time on designing, to have more time for crafting
Make designing easy, accessible and intuitive to every crafter
Lots of people are dreaming about creating their own unique designs.
With Stitch Fiddle we help making this dream come true.
The most difficult task of the design process is creating the charts, which is the reason why we started with it as our first service. More tools become available one after another.
We do a good job, when you spend less time on designing, so you have more time for doing the real crafting.
Stitch Fiddle originated from our own needs in March 2015.
Existing solutions were expensive and difficult to use.
The first version was only for color charts, without being able to save them, print, symbols, etc. After enthusiastic reactions of other people we made it available other people. From there Stitch Fiddle is growed and developed daily.
In December 2015, Stitch Fiddle became a registered company at the Chamber of Commerce.
Thousands of users are signing up each month.
All basic functions for designing charts are available. More advanced features are added every week.
There are promising ideas on the roadmap.
The list below mentions some highlights. Note that it takes some time to get there. The current focus is dedicated to the charts before we proceed to the next stage. Read about this journey in the weblog.
- Collaboration between users to work together on designs at the same time, including option to leave notes, chat, track changes and see contributions from each other, etc.;
- Charts from written instructions, and written instructions to charts. Researching is going on to do the same for freeform crochet charts;

- Circular charts for mochila crochet;
- Automatically check chart for possible issues;
- Multilingual charts with automated translation;
- Tech editor directory: Match users with each other to start working together and help each other;
