NOTE - If you would like to know more about
The Americana Stars Memorial and how to sponsor the star of a loved one or friend who was lost on 9/11, please visit the new dedicated website at
AmericanaStars.org. Thank you!
Hi. My name is Doreen Lynn Saunders. I am creating The Americana Stars Memorial, a 9/11 remembrance piece. It consists of 50 separate 2-1/2' x 4' panels and
more than 3000 different stars. Each panel will have 64 unique stars, all cross-stitched by hand. The name of a victim will be stitched under each star.
When it is finished, it will be approximately 200' in length. More than 50 stitchers around the country have offered to help.
For the past 8 years, I have been supporting this project
with my savings. Along the way, many of my stitchers have asked me if my stars and other cross-stitch designs are available
for purchase as home products and novelty items. In order to help with the costs of producing this memorial, I am creating this
website where I will be selling cross-stitch kits and many other items I have designed just for you.
Almost all of my designs are based upon my love of the AMERICAN FLAG & QUILTS.
(Scroll down to read all about them.)
You can read all about this project and my grass roots fundraising effort at The Americana Stars Memorial.
The following websites are publishing my story with some very complimentary introductions (I am grateful).
This website is still under construction so please be patient
with me while I get all of my links, images and forms ready to go. If you would like to be notified of my grand opening,
please send me an email at the the link provided at the bottom of this home page.
In the meantime, feel free to browse around and contact me with questions or requests.
I hope you will enjoy what you find and be generous with your orders.
||Cross Stitch Quilts
Here you will find CROSS-STITCH KITS, MAGNETS, STICKERS,
SUPPLIES & EMBELLISHMENTS, BOOKMARKS AND CUSTOM MAGNET DESIGNS FOR CORPORATE AND PERSONAL EVENTS.
I create beautiful cross-stitch designs based on my love of
the AMERICAN FLAG & QUILTS (Traditional and Hawaiian). They will be available as kits and stationery, with complimentary bookmarks to match!
And how about a wonderful assortment of stickers, supplies & embellishments to compliment your stitching and scrapbooking projects?
There will be many popular items that are no longer available on the regular market, but are here at a discount.
You will be able to purchase any of my magnet designs from my personal design library
as a single piece. If you need 25 - 1000 or more custom designed magnets to advertise & market your business or to sell in your retail store,
I am ready to create a design just for you. A customized bookmark with your business contact information is a wonderful addition
to reports and proposals. Please ask for details.
I have a full catalog of design subjects including, but not limited to:
Vintage - posters, art nouveau, baseball, fruit crate label art,
Paintings by the Masters,
Food & Recipes,
Quilts and Cross-Stitch,
I create SAVE-THE-DATE designs for corporate or personal events and parties.
I can design customized SAVE-THE-DATE magnets and bookmarks
that are sent out with your invitations and become mementos of the event for your guests -
Special parties, Corporate or Personal.
At this time, I am only able to fill requests for custom magnets and CD's, as I am concentrating
on the memorial project. You can still shop at my
CafePress store. I am keeping all of the pages as they were in hopes of filling them in the future and so you will
know what I will be offering. Of course, all proceeds will be used to support The Americana Stars Memorial and I am always available at
my email link below. I thank you for understanding.
